Guiding stem cells into damaged hearts with MRI and ultrasonics | KurzweilAI

March 26, 2013 Cardiac stem-cell therapy using stem cells loaded with silica nanoparticles containing fluorescent dye and gadolinium ions for ultrasonic and MRI imaging (credit: Jesse V. Jokerst et al./Sci Transl Med)   Stem-cell therapy for damaged hearts is a brilliant idea whose time has not yet come. The problem: no way to ensure against faulty initial placement of the stem cells. Stanford’s Sam Gambhir, PhD, MD, who heads Stanford medical school’s Department of Radiology may have found a way around it. “You can use ultrasound to visualize the needle through which you deliver stem cells to the heart.

The FDA has quietly decided that we don't have the right to know if it's adulterating our food, not even if the food is labeled USDA Organic.   by Heidi Stevenson   2 January 2011   Aspartame can step aside. There's a new sweetener in town and it isn't saddled with the inconvenience of having to be listed on labels, so it can be sneaked into any prepared food, even USDA so-called Organic.
