Gene therapy implants for tendons

Further to my point about gene therapy as the future of doping for athletes is this story from the BBC about gene therapy and ‘freeze-dried’ tendons.

All gene therapies being used (or considered) for doping by athletes and their coaches started off as legitimate therapies for legitimate conditions or injuries. Just a matter of time until somebody ‘repairs’ their perfectly good tendon to out-perform the competition…

You heard it here first 🙂
