ACT Diet

Hi does anyone have a list of the diet given out by ACT clinic? My mother has MS and although we still have while to go until we have saved up the funds, she wants to try the diet from now to get prepared. Also if there is any other information they give to you on what you need to do in preparation (ie. Physio, etc). Any info. will be greatly appreciated!

Mechanism regulating new cell production discovered

So much stem cell research going on these days...



New stem-cell findings can help the body to cure itself

Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have identified an important mechanism that regulates how many new cells are produced by each intestinal stem cell. The study is published in the latest issue of the prestigious scientific journal Cell.

"This might eventually help us develop new drugs for things like neurological disorders and anaemia," says Professor Jonas Frisén.

In ...

Currently going through stem cell transplant

Hello everyone, I am currently in the middle of my stem cell transplant for MS in Ottowa Canada. I currently have a hickman line attached and have been through the first cemo sessions along with the Neupagen shots for my collection. I am currently waiting for my final cemo and the reinsertion of my stem cells which will start in July. My strenghth is almost at my baseline again and I will try to respond ...

Cloning Embryonic Stem Cells

Harvard scientists will try to clone embryos for stem cells

MALCOLM RITTER
Tue Jun 6, 7:04 PM ET

(AP) - Stepping into a research area marked by controversy and fraud, Harvard University scientists said Tuesday they are trying to clone human embryos to create stem cells they hope can be used one day to help conquer a host of diseases.

"We are convinced that work with embryonic stem cells holds enormous promise," said Harvard provost ...
