    In order to overcome this shortage of organs, scientists have considered the possibility of using animals as a source of organs. Xenotransplantation, or xenografting, is the process of transplanting live organs between different species. ne choice of source animals will be of prime importance for xenotransplantation. Ideally, the donor animal would show immunological, anatomical, and physiological... View full abstract»

    Although nuclear transfer (NT) techniques are used to clone animals, their efficiency is very low. Moreover, NT has resulted in offspring with severe developmental problems, probably due to incomplete nuclear reprogramming. Nuclear reprogramming is characterized by functional modification of the transferred nucleus to allow it to direct normal embryo development with the potential to grow to term....

    The present situation in Europe can be described as the acceptance of the "precautionary" principle, by which any new biotech application is considered hazardous until proven safe beyond any possible doubt. This attitude is now so well established in the public opinion that it is very difficult for people to accept products (food in particular) that have been developed through biotech. People pref...

    An effective diagnosis of the sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) is based on a contextual analysis of the patient's polysomnograph, consisting of simultaneously recording electrophysiological and pneumological signals during a night's sleep. Currently, the prevalence of this disorder has caused an increase in the demand for specialist clinical assistance and sleep units. As in other areas of medicine, the... View full abstract»

    MRI is now routinely used for medical diagnostics due to several inherent advantages over other imaging modalities. One major advantage of MRI is its safety and image quality. In contrast to conventional X-ray computer tomography, MRI does not use ionizing radiation so its use need not be limited by exposure concerns. View full abstract»

    Dead on arrival (subtitled The Politics of Health Care in Twentieth-Century America) is a thoroughly researched and thoroughly depressing story about how the United States came to be the only industrialized country without national health insurance. Heath care is so fundamental to human existence that denying it to those who are in need is rather like denying them food when they are starving. A ri... View full abstract»

  • Retrospectroscope: exploding glass eyes

    Injury to the eye often necessitates removal of the eye (enucleation). The development of the glass eye is discussed and the fact that hollow-glass eyes "exploded" spontaneously. Two explanations for glass-eye "explosions" were popular: (1) the glass became eroded by tissue fluids in the socket and (2) excess pressure produced the "explosion." The accounts presented provide the evidence. View full abstract»

    Two main contributing factors to plaque formation and growth. One relates to the triggering role played by inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines. The second relates to the out-of-control growth of smooth-muscle cells. The drug selected to work with a drug-eluting stent should control one or both of these factors. Typically, the drug is entrapped in a polymer coating that slowly releases it int... View full abstract»

    The ability to produce offspring from animals otherwise incapable of reproduction has important implications in the equine. Routinely, male equines are electively castrated to produce animals (geldings) that are more easily managed and handled. These animals are then much more conveniently and safety used in various competitions such as cutting, reining, polo, roping, and racing. The ability to re... View full abstract»
