Color Blindness Cured in Monkeys

An experimental treatment in which a human virus carrying color-sensing genes was injected into monkeys' eyes resulted in a drastic reduction in red-green color blindness. What do you think?

"Wonderful. Now those monkeys can obey traffic lights like everybody else."

Mandy Fielding • Systems Analyst


"Of all the things I've injected into monkeys' eyes, I never considered experimental therapies."

Eric Hunt • Lab Technician

"Hopefully the monkeys will remember our act of generosity in the troubled era to come."
