Adult Stem Cells Found in Hair Follicles

FRIDAY, Dec. 15 (HealthDay News) -- Adult stem cells found in the bulge of hair follicles may provide an alternative to embryonic stem cells, say researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

Like embryonic stem cells, these epidermal neural crest stem cells have a high degree of plasticity, can be isolated at high levels of purity, and can be expanded in culture, the researchers said.

Only T-Cells?

I remember reading that some treatments that have shown promise, actually work on the B-Cells. Now, I dont understand all the medicall stuff behind the immune system, but from what I have read, they should also be able to identify B-Cells that are involved in this disease?

Could they not make a "vaccine" that targetted both T-Cells & B-Cells? wouldn't we expect this to be a more complete treatment? or have they tried doing both ...

Do animal experiments predict outcomes in humans?

Interesting study that I think we can all appreciate.



Animal studies: a good guide for clinical trials? Study reveals animal experiments often fail to predict outcomes in humans.

December 14, 2006 -- Nature -- Animal-rights activists have long claimed that differences between humans and animals make experiments in species such as rats of little use. Most scientists disagree, saying that drug development would be impossible without initial tests in animals (see our Animal research special). ...

Drug dealers !

A sad story from the BBC reporting a realy daft decision by an English jury to convict three people of supplying cannabis to people with MS.

Medical Mal-practice

I wanted to let the members know that, after five days of trial, upon completion of the plaintiff's presentation and before the Defense's presentation, a medical malpractice case was settled for an undisclosable sum of money, after we brought suit against my wife's original treating neurologist for failing to diagnose and treat her multiple sclerosis during his nearly six years of treating her.
