Why has the FDA put a hold on this CRISPER study?

I am praying they can honestly address the FDAs questions, move forward and have great success.
CRSIPER once prefected has great potential to cure incurable Neurological Disorders and diseases.
n December, gene-editing company CRISPR Therapeutics announced a partnership with biotech company Vertex to develop CTX001, the world’s first gene-based treatment for sickle cell disease (SCD). Now, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has denied the companies’ request to move forward with a early-phase trial of CTX001 in adult volunteers, placing a “clinical hold” on the application.

Apparently they have a few questions answered before they give it a green light.
That's good in that it prevents people from being abused by unethical jackasses.
I just hope they get their answers quickly so the researchers can move forward with their trials.

The FDA even admitted that it relies on the research of manufacturers. I suppose someone asked for the agency to provide their research findings on something or other and they couldn't, so they passed the buck. Then manufacturers say they rely on the FDA's decisions. A perfect incompetent and often corrupt loop.

All the agencies have had corporate shills appointed by corrupt politicians.

I have zero faith in the FDA. According to the author of Altered Genes Twisted Truth. The FDA new about the danger of GM substances since research began in the 1970's. They have people who support Monsanto and hide the truth from us.
