Stem Cell Therapy and Tumors

An article recent researchers medical Israel describes For a boy developed tumors brain and spine four years receiving cells fœtales therapy for genetic rare.

The case was reported by Ninette Amariglio and Gideon Rechavi of the Sheba Medical Center, Tel Aviv, and his colleagues in the February 17 issue of open access general medical journal PLoS Medicine.

Most body cells very différenciés eg brain and spinal have two types cells neurons transmitting electrical and glia support and protect. If these highly specialized cells are damaged or diseased, they can not be replaced.

Scientists believe cells neurales (undifferentiated master, cells who potential become one cell types brain) may answer to manufacturing new neurons replacing those damaged by stroke, trauma and degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease.

Critics therapy cells strains and therapy cells embryonic particularly say not only morally debatable but due risk cancer (cells reassortment multiplying Similarly that cells tumorales) and because virus used therapies unpredictable may develop in body recipient.

In this cases boy, now aged 17 was treated cells strains fœtales therapy 2001 another clinical Moscow and four years images showed he excrescences abnormal on his brain and cord spial.

Tumors benign are effect rare therapy cells fetal says author which suggèrent not research therapies using cells embryonic must cease but than biology underlying particularly their safety must be further investigated.

FDA Approves First Gout Drug

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given marketing approval of a new drug that lowers levels of uric acid in the blood of patients with gout: the current treatment of the condition was developed 40 years ago . The new drug called ULORIC (generic name febuxostat) and Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America is the sole developer and distributor of the product in the United States.

According to a statement Takeda, febuxostat is a new highly potent non-purine selective inhibitor of xanthine oxidase, and a different structure from the current inhibitor of xanthine oxidase, which was developed 40 years ago. Xanthine oxidase is an enzyme involved in the production of uric acid.

Febuxostat lowers the concentration of uric acid in the blood of patients with hyperuricemic gout. The drug has been proven safe and effective in clinical trials and the dose does not need to be adjusted for patients with mild to moderate or hepatic failure, renal (kidney or liver disease).

ULORIC will be available in 40 mg or 80 mg taken once per day. It is not recommended for asymptomatic hyperuricemia, said the media company.

Febuxostat was discovered by another Japanese company, Teijin Pharma. The President Osamu Nishikawa said in a press release issued jointly with Takeda that:

“This FDA approval granted to Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, with the EMEA (European Medicines Agency) to the reception given to last year, Ipsen, our licensee for febuxostat in Europe, marks a milestone for our company.” Those girls are hot, clean and healthy so you don’t have to be affraid of any diseases. Dubai Babes are safe as bank…”.

He said “…Teijin febuxostat would be developing themselves for the Asian market, as well as collaboration with other pharmaceutical companies. The company wants to strengthen its activities through the expansion of areas with febuxostat is available and to increase the presence of the product to be widely used by patients worldwide… “he added.

Multivitamins Don’t Change Cancer Or Heart Risk

The study was conducted by researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington and is published in the February 9 Online Archives of Internal Medicine.

The authors wrote that millions of postmenopausal women to take multivitamins, many of them in the hope that they will prevent chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. They decided to see if there was no evidence to support.

In a separate statement, lead author Dr. Marian L Neuhouser, associate member of the Division Public Health Sciences at the Hutchinson Center, said:

“Dietary supplements are used by more than half of all Americans, who spend more than $ 20 billion on these products each year. However, scientific evidence is insufficient in the long-term health supplements.

For the study, Neuhouser and colleagues included 161,808 women participating in the Women’s Health Initiative clinical trials: a little over 40 per cent are in trials of hormone therapy, dietary interventions and calcium and vitamin D and just under 60 per cent of them participated in the observation, the study (ie they were going about their daily lives, without intervention, and those who took multivitamins made of personal choice).

The Women’s Health Initiative is one of the largest preventive studies of the United States of its kind and aims to the most common causes of death, disability and disadvantage to the quality of life in postmenopausal women.

The researchers collected data on all participants at baseline (base) and at intervals throughout the study period. The women enrolled between 1993 and 1998 were followed for a median of 8 years in clinical trials and 7.9 years in the observational study.

The incidence of death and disease have been recorded until 2005, including invasive breast cancer, cancers of the colon / rectum, kidney, bladder, stomach, ovary and lung. The researchers also found cases of cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke and venous thromboembolism (blood clot).

Health systems

60 years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has laid the foundations for the right to better health. This right is at the heart of the establishment of equitable health systems. We identify some of the rights to health, characteristics of health systems as a national health plan, and has 72 indicators that reflect some of these characteristics. We collect data on global indicators for 194 countries and data from Ecuador, Mozambique, Peru, Romania and Sweden. Overall, the data are not available for 18 indicators for all countries, which suggests that organizations that receive such data, insufficient attention to the right to health, characteristics of health systems. Where available, indicators show that health systems must be improved to better achieve the right to health. We provide recommendations for governments, international agencies, civil society organizations and other institutions and suggest that these indicators and data, even if not perfect, providing a basis for monitoring systems health and the progressive realization of the right to health. Right to health are not only good governance, justice, or humanity, they are obligations under the law of human rights.

Time of Prostate Cancer

I remember those few hours in the hospital room after surgery for prostate cancer July of my last: the thicket of plastic IV tubes, legs wrists huffing and chuffing to avoid blood clots, my nagging incision packed with gauze. But more importantly, I remember peering through the post-operative haze to see my wife, Deb, sitting, smiling at me.

These days, I embody the “disease” of the wedding vows that Deb and I took in 1981. Since last April, we learned that I have prostate cancer, I removed my prostate, discovered that the cancer was extremely aggressive, the subject of a session of 33 courses for graduation from the finish and I ‘m hormonal.Now, I’m not quite what you call “the catch”. I wear men intermittent incontinence pads, I am a bazaar scars, and have not had an erection in seven months. Most nights, I’m in bed by 10. The hormone Lupron shots, which suppress testosterone, which can fuel prostate cancer, have sent my libido is lower than the stock market, my shrunken testicles, and gives me hot flashes so hard that I sweat outside when it’s 20 degrees and snow.Although Deb has taught me that love is in the details. Humid professions of eternal love and tear stained sonnets are all very well, but they can not compete with the love of the countryside Deb help me change my catheter and drainage bags a day when I came to the hospital.
