7 million Us citizens have artificial hips.

Just what a world of difference. Not all individuals have fared aswell, though. Implant recalls and big individual lawsuits show the risk when a device is flawed. Last June, Stryker Corp. Recalled certain hip implant products due to corrosion and other complications. Last month, another gadget maker, Biomet, decided to pay at least $200,000 each to a huge selection of people who received artificial hips that were later replaced. In November And, Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay $2.5 billion to settle 8 roughly,000 individuals’ lawsuits over an all-metal hip implant it pulled from the market in 2010 2010.

Ban on human embryonic stem cell research raisingannounced the South Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare on Thursday that they allow scientists to research to lead to the creation of embryonic stem cells by cloning human embryos, reports the AP / West Australian (AP / West Australian, Human embryonic stem cell research was banned last year after Hwang Woo Suk and colleagues from Seoul National University published fraudulent claims that they are genetically matched embryonic stem cell lines created.

Radiation exposure from radiation exposure from CT and its possible side effects are real concerns, said Mark S. Lead researcher on the study.

Hwang and his team in 2005, two scientific papers Science Science to the somatic cell nuclear transfer cloning technique to 11 embryonic stem cell lines, the genetic similarities with patients aged two to 56 are used to create. Both studies were found, inventions and scientific retreated formally the papers in January 2006. Moreover, Korean National Bioethics Committee in March to remove the ban on human embryonic stem cell cloning research and conditionally so selected the research, said Cho Han – Ik, the deputy head of the committee.

By using a unique stretchy surface that the cells may grab it.

By using a unique stretchy surface that the cells may grab it, the researchers found they could generate up to three times more stem cells than using current methods alone. Published in the leading biotechnology journal Nature Biotechnology, lead author Professor John Rasko from the Centenary Institute and RPA Hospital announced these results could be significantly improved the outcome of stem cell transplants. – Centenary Institute Head of Gene and Stem Cell Therapy Professor John Rasko* said: hematopoietic stem cells or blood-forming stem cells play a key role in creating the blood cells in our body cells the number of these cells have. Tried to tried to reproduce the unique environment where stem cells live inside the body in the past, we have learned how to use hormones and drugs to influence these niche environments but less is known about the effect of physical forces.
