CRISPR-Cas systems, consisting of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas), are the latest generation of gene editing technology and have been widely used in molecular biology research. CRISPR-Cas systems also have unlimited potential in the field of medicine, especially in the treatment of human viral diseases, such as blocking virus invasion, interfering with virus replication, and eliminating viral genome and sequelae of virus infection. In this article, the latest research progress of CRISPR-Cas9 system and other CRISPR systems in treatments of several viral diseases are reviewed. In addition, the advantages and potential problems of CRISPR systems as treatment options are analyzed to provide ideas for subsequent related research.
