Gene Therapy and Gene Doping

150 150 Praveen

Gene Therapy could transform the lives of the elderly and people with muscular dystrophy. Gene Doping is also a dream come true for an athlete bent on doping. The chemicals are indistinguishable from their natural counterparts and are only generated locally in the muscle tissue. Nothing enters the bloodstream, so officials will have nothing to detect in a blood or urine test. Preventing athletes gaining access to them could be impossible.
