Bolsheviks and Britain in World War One - "Bolsheviks and Britain in World War One" During one of the therapy and wit sessions between Rivers and Prior at Craiglockhart, we discover that class struggle is an issue plaguing Prior. Pat Barker introduces the reference to Bolsheviks on page 135 in order to have her readers strictly denounce the caste system of British society, both for the soldiers returning home, and also the women who continued to be victims of the same system in Britain during World War One. Understanding the role Bolsheviks play in affecting Britain's soldiers and citizens during World War One first requires background information on both Russian interests and Russia's relationship to Germany....   [tags: World History Regeneration Barker Essays]

Finding a Cure through Regenerative Medicine: Government-Funded Embryonic Stem Cell Research - Richard J. Gross a developmental biologist once said, “If there were no regeneration, there could be no life. If everything regenerated there would be no death.” In 2001 President George W. Bush banned the further funding of embryonic stem cell research. Why. Some feel that embryonic stem cell research encouraged abortion, and that by banning the federal funding for embryonic stem cell research it would lessen the rates of abortion. However, just recently President Barack Obama has reversed that law and thereby allowing federal funding for embryonic stem cell research....   [tags: Regenerative Medicine, Government Funding, Embryon] 1588 words

Regenerative Medicine - ... Experiments such as this left scientists with much speculation towards this new method, and how successful it would be for future generations. Would it actually work. In another experiment conducted in June 2008, at the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, Professor Paolo Macchiarini and his team, of the University of Barcelona, performed the first tissue engineered trachea (wind pipe) transplantation. Adult stem cells were extracted from the patient's bone marrow, grown into a large population, and matured into cartilage cells, or chondrocytes, using an adaptive method originally devised for treating osteoarthritis....   [tags: Stem Cells, Physical Treatment] 1341 words

Novel Approaches in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Reducing the Incidence of Cardiovascular Diseases - ... 683). Scaffold materials are required to guide the division of cells to enable the development of an organ just like an extracellular matrix. Attempts are being made to make patient specific scaffolds through bio manufacturing (Bartolo et al, 2009, p. 212). Failed cardiovascular components can be replaced with “biocompatible tissues that have the potential to rapidly restore the lost function and slowly regenerate by remodeling” (Simionescu et al, 2011). In order to ensure tissue repair, the bioengineering of cardiac tissue should focus not only on resemblance with original tissue, but also on the factors that favor revascularization of the damaged heart (Zammaretti and Jaconi, 2004)....   [tags: Medicinal Technology, Availability]

Neural Precursor Cells and Neuro-Regenerative Medicine - Introduction The adult central nervous system (CNS) is comprised of cells from two distinct lineages- neurons and glial cells. Neurons are the basic building block of CNS that responsible for communicating information via eletro-chemical mechanisms. Glial cells (astrocytes and oligodendrocytes) surround the neurons; provide them support and insulation. “No new neuron after birth” or “the adult human brain cannot regenerate” was the dogma of neurosciences for the past century (1). Recently, this principle has been challenged by the discovery of NPC in both embryonic and adult mammalian nervous system (1, 2)....   [tags: Medicine] 636 words

The small intestine epithelium is folded into finger-like protrusions, called villi, directed toward the lumen; the valleys are invaginations into the sub-mucosa and are known as the crypts. In the large intestine, the mucosa lacks villi, and the crypts invaginate deep into the sub-mucosa....   [tags: Biology, ] 890 words
