Biotech CEO does DIY gene therapy, supposedly inhibits myostatin

Recommended Posts

This guy's company is doing clinical trials of follistatin gene therapy to inhibit myostatin and alleviate muscle deteriorating diseases.  Seems legit.


they would not be doing this if it was going to screw up the heart and other organs, I would think.

This is actually happening in my lifetime. I am quite surprised.

 You write what I think. I doubt, that the methods to cure muscular diseases will be applied to healthy persons in the most immediate future, though, and, if the methods are found useful for athletes, I doubt that they will be available to average persons. I foresee a future, in which only high-profile athletes and the immensely rich will have access to muscle-enhancing gene therapy.
