Bone Marrow Stem Cells Help Restore Fertility in Sterile Mice

BOSTON, July 28, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A team of Harvard scientists have discovered a reservoir of stem cells that appear capable of restoring the fertility of sterilized mice.

Tilly, a reproductive biologist at Harvard Medical School. The researchers found that some cells in the bone marrow and blood of […]

PROVIDENCE, July 28, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Even while the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating deaths related to it, the manufacturers of the drug Mifepristone continue to deny that their drug was the cause of the bacterial infection that has killed five women.

Miech, a professor emeritus in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biotechnology at Brown University, has provided clear evidence that the drug causes conditions in which bacterial infections can take hold and become deadly. The Annals of Pharmacotherapy will publish Dr. Miech’s study in the September issue. During an […]

South Korean Company Plans First Hospital Dedicated To Umbilical Cord Stem-Cell Treatment

SEOUL, South Korea, July 28, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The self-professed purpose of South Korea’s Histostem Corporation is music to the ears of pro-life advocates waging a difficult war against deadly embryonic stem-cell research. According to its website, Histostem “is pioneering cell-based therapy with stem cells, free of ethical problems.” Hoon Han, CEO of Histostem, received his Ph.D. from the Catholic University of Korea in 1979. There are few who would argue that Histostem’s research and experimentation with treatments involving only stem cells isolated from the blood in umbilical cords collected after birth poses any notable ethical conundrums. The corporation claims […]
