Well, this was only a matter of time.
I have posted several times about Crispr gene therapy racing ahead, all sorts of diseases cured (maybe) in animals.
I knew about home Crispr kits for use on lower life forms. I even planned to buy one and have a play around.
But, here we go, people are attempting to alter their own genes, at home, livestreamed on YouTube.
Have a read:
I thought I was pushing the envelope, but this is something else entirely.
Here is one "clinic" selling gene therapy (though not advertised).
I am looking around to see who is openly selling kits, cannot find any, though since you can buy absolutely anything on the Interweb, I'll give it six months.
Somebody will offer an ABCD1 repair syringe, and somebody will inject it into themselves.
Look on the ALD forums, children are dying. A lot of rightly desperate parents there.
Only a matter of time. What do we all think of this, folks?
Oh, and Merry Christmas to you all, and Seifert_09, good to see you back in action.
