Due to self-renewal property and differentiation capability of stem cell, it becomes a new hope in modern treatment. The first successful case of stem cell therapy in human was reported in 1959. Bone marrow restorations were observed in leukemia patients who received total body irradiation subsequent by intravenous injection of their twins’ bone marrow (Thomas et al, 1957)....   [tags: Stem Cell Research, Argumentative, Scientific] 1020 words

Achondroplasia - Achondroplasia (ACH) is the most common form of short-limb dwarfism occuring in 1 in 15,000 to 28,000 births and appears to be slightly more prevalent in females, but indiscriminent toward race (1-3). Evidence has been found in Egypt for cases of ACH dating back as far as 4500 B.C. (4). In simplest terms, ACH is a disease where the dwarfing of bones formed in the cartilage occurs (5). There are many features that accompany this disease including rhizomelic (proximal) shortening of the extremities, megalencephaly (enlarged brain), short stature, trident hand, and frontal bossing (prominent forehead) (1, 3, 4, 6-8)....   [tags: Health, Diseases,] 1339 words

Effects of Flouride - Effects of Flouride Fifty-five years ago they told us that in order to have healthy teeth, we needed to have one part fluoride in each million parts of water. That's the same as one milligram of fluoride per liter -- about one-quarter milligram per 8-ounce cup. There is ample evidence that fluoride is harmful to health: that is why it has been banned or discontinued in 21 European countries, Japan and Hawaii. A major report ordered by Congress in January 1990 from the U.S. government's National Toxicological Program links fluoride with bone and mouth cancer, a rare form of liver cancer, and thyroid cancer....   [tags: Papers] 483 words
