I have plans to have my mother genetically modifed through an injection.
 
I have a concern, though.
 
If another technology comes into picture which enhances life further, even makes someone younger, can it be used on my mother? I mean can someone whose genetics is modified can be modified agin, several times? Or can it be done only one time? Is it a one time opportunity or can other genetic altering technologies be implemented on my mother again?
 
Thanks to all of you.

I don't see why a genetic modification to be limited in one time only.

@rejwan This is an important concern. I heard that one can develop immunity (antibodies) to the viral vector used to deliver the genetic material. Then it will not work the second time around or, worse yet, the cells that have been modified will be killed by the immune sys (-?)

 

Also, the today/yesterday article in the Guardian about the genetic therapy mentions that one of the babies was rejected from the trial, because he had antibodies to the virus they were using (not due to previous genetic therapy, apparently he just got exposed to it naturally).

 

I too would like to know more about this.

Thank you to both of you. xEva. Thanks for the input. May be other contributors can also tell more about that..... Caution is needed....

But I was wondering, what sort of injection you're planning to give your mom? I vaguely recall there was a video a year or two ago, one guy injectimg himself in his living room with some sort of 'genetic therapy' (-or?). Is it what you're talking about? where do you get the stuff? Could you please tell us about it.
