Smithsonian reports that some researchers are turning to gene editing to target established infections like herpes.

The Sentosa SA201 HSV-1/2 PCR test detects herpes virus DNA from oral or anal skin lesions in symptomatic patients.

The test is designed to detect and differentiate herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2, Treponema pallidum, and varicella-zoster virus.
