Stem Cells – Controversial?

Stem cells are the body’s repair reserve. They are not yet differentiated and can become a variety (over 200) of different cell types depending on demand. There are currently probably no other scientific branch in which the messages and messages seemingly deal over, as in the field of stem cell research. In the past few years have been saved over 60,000 scientific studies trend rapidly increasingly. Though very few reports from the specialised publications in the media, this shows a distorted picture of the knowledge unfortunately. The normal reader hear only about the controversial discussion of embryonic stem cells. This is a topic for the press and the ethicist, here can be spotted with morality. On the other hand, that it comes in our lives after the birth to adult stem cells, which is respected little by the media, what is spectacular and is suitable for headlines? The story is that, adult stem cells are present since the birth in your bone marrow and establish your natural healing system.

From the day on which they are born, is it the role of your bone marrow stem cells to migrate through the body and to penetrate the organs and tissue repair help request\”. Donald Sussman addresses the importance of the matter here. It is not only this natural phenomenon, which occurs every day and every minute in the body of each, is remarkable and breathtaking, means the discovery for the medicine, that we need to change the manner we see health, wellness, and disease development. Reporters are often unable to accurately display the information, because the topic of stem cells can be quite complex. Therefore, still some articles claim that adult stem cells have a low potential, while us the current science makes clear that the future lies of cell research with adult stem cells. The new discoveries are related to a completely new perspective on health and wellness.

Medical Research

Premieres new product group ‘CANdot’ and BMBF grants project for detecting prostate cancer Hamburg, September 22, 2008 with two milestones the Hamburg Centre for applied nanotechnology (CAN) his competence and relevance in the area underlines Nano medical research. Is for the first time at the trade fair of Nanotech Northern Europe\”in Copenhagen (23-25 September) presented the so-called CANdots to the new product group\”. Read more from Cardiologist to gain a more clear picture of the situation. This is also a quantum dots to fluorescent nanoparticles called, that exhibit a very high reproducibility when compared to conventional fluorescence markers due to a patented manufacturing process CAN GmbH. The CANdots change their physical characteristics with the particle size and we can set this reproducible exactly\”, sums up CAN Managing Director Dr. Frank Schroder-Oeynhausen. With the help of statistical methods showed that the so produced nanoparticles to a multiple characteristics reproducibility than the Particle established on the market\”, explained CAN project manager Jan Niehaus.

With the product group, the CAN GmbH receives access to a wide variety of application areas, in particular in the medical diagnostics and opto-electronics. The technique, developed in cooperation with the University of Hamburg allows the production of larger quantities of CANdots with significantly less effort compared to usual procedures. More will follow in A series presented in Copenhagen. \”The Nanotech Northern Europe\” is Europe’s largest annual Conference on the field of nanotechnology and includes an exhibition with a focus on nutrition, health and energy. \”BMBF project for the early detection of the cancer approved starting shot for the BMBF project PROCEED\” with participation of CAN GmbH: the project of translating molecular profiles into enhanced diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer \”under direction of the DKFZ Heidelberg is dedicated to the early detection of prostate carcinoma. Target is an incipient faster and more targeted treatment and thus improving the chances of recovery. While important falls to the development of new molecular markers with improved properties developed by of CAN GmbH and the Physics Institute of the University of Hamburg.
