Stem cell lines created without destroying embryo

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=344588
In a bid to sidestep the ethical debate over the use of human embryos in medical research, scientists have developed a way to derive viable stem cell lines without harming the embryo.

They did so by extracting a single cell from the embryo — as in vitro fertilization clinics do when they test for genetic defects and introducing a common molecule called laminin to keep it in a stem cell, or pluripotent, state.

Subsequent development ...

Accelerated Cure Project: The Cure Map

From The Cure Map:

"Known diseases are caused by one or more of only 5 root determinants:

1. Genetics (defects in, or bad combinations of, genetic information)
2. Pathogens (viruses, bacteria, prions)
3. Nutrition (imbalance in external substances the body requires)
4. Toxic Agents (chemical, electro-magnetic or nuclear radiation)
5. Trauma (physical damage)"


Is this really true? Here's from Medline Plus on Somatization Disorder:

"Somatization disorder is a chronic condition in which there are numerous ...

MS Teleconference

Did anyone listen to the teleconference last night with Dr. Dean Wingerchuk of the Neurology Department at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale.

I had signed up for it and then just plain forgot about it until this morning. I am really perturbed with myself because he was going to discuss a lot of new treatments and future treatments.

Another day, another protein

http://www.ivanhoe.com/channels/p_channelstory.cfm?storyid=17989

Autoimmune Disease Cure may lie in Protein

Researchers at VIB, the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology, in connection with Ghent University and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium, discovered a protein responsible for initiating this inflammation reaction. The protein, named MALT1, slices another protein called A20. In normal circumstances, A20 inhibits inflammation but when MALT1 is present, the inflammation reaction amplifies.

Scientists believe their findings will lead to the development of new medicines that counteract MALT1 ...

Lamotrigine

Dignan,

I've been holding back on this - the Lamotrigine trial is being extended by a few months. You are such a delicate soul that I didn't want to upset you. I still have high hopes for this trial, but the results will be a little longer in coming.

To cheer you up - I'm sure that they'll be some good news (research / drugs trials) soon.
