Curious on what such a therapy would cost.
Vertex just priced their recently approved drug for CF at $311K/year
Opps...CF = Cystic Fibrosis....something this tech is said to fix.

Surely they will "find" many more disorders with "genetic causes" for adults, which really are lifestyle based- children being the exceptions, since most children with severe genuine genetic disorders do not tend to live very long.

Board moderator and Site-owner. I still regret the day I started analysing the prospects of MacroPore (now Cytori) back in 2004- a left-over from the tech-bubble at that time from the century change in my portfolio- and became addicted to Cytori´s fat cell technology. :cry:

Yes Hedge- there is whole lot of scientific evidence that "switches" can be turned on DNA - that science is generally referred to as Epigenetics and I wrote a large article about it, roughly 4 years ago, which I also intend to incorporate in this page, when I have the time for it. Which I hope will be soon.
