For the first time, researchers from the Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge , with collaboration from a Institut Pasteur / Inserm team in France, have shown iPS cells derived from stem cells in gene therapy can help to combat pathological effects in a mouse model of liver failure are used. The researchers focused on a rare genetic disorder of the liver -. It is caused by a point mutation in the a1-antitrypsin gene to function significantly to correct for liver cells.
This groundbreaking work, published in Nature, thus strengthening hopes in scientific and medical communities regarding the use of iPS cells to treat humans.
To find out, The study showedcollected breast milk samples from 13 lactating mothers and measured their content of iodine, perchlorate, and thiocyanate, another iodine inhibitor found in certain foods. The study showed that when the breast milk samples were infants, performed 12 of 13 infants did not have an adequate intake of iodine. It also showed that nine of the children would. Captured perchlorate at a level greater than those who have to be safe from the National Academy of Sciences Even though the number of subjects was not large in terms of the total number of samples analyzed this is the most extensive study on the subject is the researchers say, adding that the low iodine levels alarming..

Imbalances in the way the intestinal flora – friendly vs. Harmful – can cause indigestion. Left unchecked, they can cause much more serious health problems. One such disease is Irritable Bowel Syndrome .
Oregon together with key stakeholders, including the computer science department of Medical and Clinical Epidemiology at Oregon Health and Science University , working with the state and APS to assess the program’s impact APS will also form to establish a Clinical Advisory Committee of state medical organizations and a consistently high level of communication with the provider community. We look forward to working with APS to develop metrics to assess the impact of the program, said Ariel Linden, Department of Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology, computer science, Oregon Health and Science University. Feedback from the program is invaluable in measuring and identifying areas for improvement to the program better with time. Continue reading “Imbalances in the way the intestinal flora friendly vs.”
Saving millions of dollars each year for the swine flu Industry.. By the United States Department of Agriculture and several private companies financed, Meng laboratory also examined some economically important animal viruses, including swine circovirues, and Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus. Meng lab recently successfully developed the first USDA fully licensed vaccine Suvaxy PCV2 One Dose, against porcine circovirus associated disease, an economically important disease swine flu worldwide. Virginia Tech has licensed the vaccine to Wyeth Inc. And Fort Dodge Animal Health, Inc., and the vaccine is currently in the U.S.
