    Mexican scientist cures the Human Papilloma Virus
    Eva Ramón Gallegos, a researcher from Mexico National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) was able to completely eradicate the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in 29 patients.

    This scientific achievement was accomplished through photodynamic therapy, a non-invasive technique that seems to be an efficient method to prevent malignant neoplasm, which is the second cause of death among Mexican women.

    The scientists from the National Biological Sciences School explained that she has studied the effects of photodynamic therapy for 20 years and said she was treated 420 patients in Oaxaca and Veracruz with this method, as well as 29 women in Mexico City.

    Down syndrome sufferers could join black rhino on endangered species list, advocates launch campaign



    With genetic screening lowering the prevalence of Down syndrome around the world, one Canadian advocacy group wants to add sufferers to the endangered species list - alongside the black rhino and the Asian elephant.
    Humanity is on the verge of eradicating Down syndrome, should we decide to. Fewer people are born with the syndrome in the United States than researchers previously estimated, and prenatal screening coupled with easy access to abortion has led Iceland to all but eliminate the condition. In France, 77 percent of fetuses with Down syndrome are aborted, while in Denmark that figure is at 98 percent.
    Iceland’s success has attracted controversy, as advocates compare the country’s near-blanket termination rate to genocide. Now, a group of Canadian activists want to place people with Down syndrome on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) threatened species list.

    Scientists Have Confirmed a New DNA Structure Inside Human Cells

    Earlier this year, scientists identified the existence of a brand new DNA structure never before seen in living cells. That's right, it's not just the double helix.
    The discovery of what's described as a 'twisted knot' of DNA in living cells confirms our complex genetic code is crafted with more intricate symmetry than just the double helix structure everybody associates with DNA. Importantly, the forms these molecular variants take affect how our biology functions.

    The Chapter about Pharma Wars

    "Those who bought drugs other than male enhancement pills almost universally said they responded to prescription drug spam either because they had no health insurance, or because the same drugs available under their health plans cost two to five times as much as the drugs offered via these legitimate-looking Canadian pharmacy sites."

    "The researchers discovered that U.S. customers selected non-lifestyle items 33 percent of the time. In contrast, Canadian and Western European customers almost always bought drugs in the lifestyle category—only 8 percent of the items placed in their shopping carts were non-lifestyle items. In other words, many more Americans were turning to these spam pharmacies for prescription drugs to treat critical medical conditions, not to increase their comfort or enjoyment of life."

    etc.

    Antibiotic Booster Discovery Puts Morocco on Global Pharmaceutical Map

    Moroccan scientist Adnane Remmal has put Morocco on the global pharmaceutical map through his development of an antibiotic booster drug that combines antibiotics with anti-bacterial properties of local plants.
    The discovery earned him recently the recognition of the European Patent Office (EPO), which granted him its European Inventor Award 2017...

    Collins, Charles - Staff Ride Handbook for the Lewis and Clark Expedition

    " ... The state of medical science in 1803 was not advanced much beyond what was known in medieval times. Scientifc medicine was based upon the Depletive Theory. This theory taught that, if a person was sick, there was a bad substance inside the body that had to be removed. Doctors conducted the removal by sweating, increased urination, vomiting, purging, or bloodletting. Most of the available scientifc medicines of the day were developed to cause one of those actions. ..." etc

    Gives an idea of the philosphy of medicine at the time. Didn´t change much until late 19th century.

    Malaria: Kenya, Ghana, and Malawi get first vaccine. The pilot programme starts in 2018. It sounds very promising, but because it needs to be given over several doses it sounds like it will be difficult to administer to everyone who needs it.


    The pilot will involve more than 750,000 children aged between five and 17 months. Around half will get the vaccine in order to compare the jab's real-world effectiveness. In this age group, the four doses have been shown to prevent nearly four in ten cases of malaria.

    STROKE, brain damage, Australian spider venom....

    Let's hope this works, several of us on this forum have suffered from stroke, it is usually unexpected, unavoidable, and most people like myself have NO IDEA of the signs of stroke, nor any clue as to the importance of immediate care in a hospital! (Minutes not hours)

    Researchers store computer operating system and short movie on DNA

    Humanity may soon generate more data than hard drives or magnetic tape can handle, a problem that has scientists turning to nature's age-old solution for information-storage—DNA.

    In a new study in Science, a pair of researchers at Columbia University and the New York Genome Center (NYGC) show that an algorithm designed for streaming video on a cellphone can unlock DNA's nearly full storage potential by squeezing more information into its four base nucleotides.
