The quest for safer therapeutic alternatives to genome editing heralds epigenome editing as a promising approach. In a recent study published in Nature, Cappelluti et al. demonstrated robust, long-term Pcsk9 silencing in vivo with a single administration of epigenetic effectors delivered by lipid nanoparticles, marking a significant stride towards the clinic for epigenetic editing therapies.
