Abbott prism htlv-i/htlv-ii
The ABBOTT PRISM HTLV-I/HTLV-II assay is an in vitro chemiluminescent immunoassay (ChLIA) for the qualitative detection of antibodies to human T-lymphotropic virus Type I and/or human T-lymphotropic virus Type II (anti-HTLV-I/ HTLV-II) in human serum and plasma specimens. The ABBOTT PRISM HTLV-I/HTLV-II (ChLIA) is intended to screen individual human donors, including volunteer donors of whole blood and blood components, and other living donors for the presence of anti-HTLV-I/HTLV-II. It is also intended for use in testing blood and plasma specimens to screen organ donors when specimens are obtained while the donor’s hear...

'Bionic' spinal implant helped paralysed rats walk
Conclusion This is promising research that demonstrates how a new spinal cord implant has been able to restore movement in paralysed rats. The e-dura implant is a breakthrough in that it overcomes a lot of the problems presented by previous rigid and inflexible implants. Instead, it is made of a flexible material that is able to integrate with spinal cord tissue. The study demonstrated long-term functionality in rats and few side effects over the six-week testing period. Rats given a serious spinal cord injury, who were consequently permanently paralysed, were able to walk again after the implant was surgically placed i...

Polls of Future Past: A History of Public Expectations for the Future of Science
Science fiction sometimes barely beats out science fact as technological advancements rapidly transform the world. But the changes that are anticipated aren't always the ones that arrive. Here's a look back at what the polls tell us the public has expected from scientific progress -- and how often they've been disappointed. From the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research archives: Reality Outpacing Expectations: The Moon Landing When Gallup first asked Americans in 1949 whether they expected man to reach the Moon in the next 50 years, only 15 percent said yes. Despite the shocking power of new wartime technologies like...

Every great individual stands on the shoulders of others
Even Stephen Hawking’s formidable achievements are the product of a huge network of collaboration. We mustn’t forget the collective contribution to personal successStephen Hawking is the icon of individual achievement in the face of almost unimaginable adversity. A diagnosis of motor neurone disease is almost always a death sentence, and one more frightening than most. As the moving new film of Hawking’s life, The Theory of Everything, shows, he was a gifted 21-year-old student embarking on his Cambridge PhD in 1963 when his condition was discovered. Given two years to live, the young scientist went from cheerfully c...

Why Even A 12-Month Ban On Blood Donations From Gay Men Makes No Sense
The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday ended the lifetime ban on blood donations from men who have sex with men. But the agency said it would continue to bar donations by men who have had a sexual encounter with another man in the previous year, disappointing prominent gay rights groups and HIV/AIDS researchers, who called the yearlong waiting period medically unnecessary and unscientific. The FDA said the change "will better align the deferral period with that of other men and women at increased risk for HIV infection." “The one-year deferral notion constitutes symbolic progress, but is not any more warranted t...

The Guardian view on high-end science in the National Health Service
The genome project and improving ambulance response times both matterThe NHS has an extraordinary record of medical innovation. The link between smoking and lung cancer, the first baby born through IVF and the first heart, lung and liver transplant were all achievements of the health service. Now the 11 hospital trusts which will pioneer the 100,000 genome project have been named. They will recruit participants in an ambitious attempt to sequence the genetic make-up of up to 100,000 NHS patients, creating a database to allow researchers to identify the links between genetic variations and cancers and other rare diseases.

Memory gaps in graduates a 'stroke warning sign'
Conclusion This study showed that highly educated people who notice memory complaints in themselves may be more likely to develop stroke than those who don’t, over an average of 12 years. The study had a number of strengths, such as its population-based prospective design and availability of data on more than 9,000 participants at baseline with a long follow-up. However, there were also a number of limitations that weaken the strength of the conclusions. It was not clear whether the memory complaints were assessed just once at the start of the study or an ongoing basis. Some people may report memory complaints that are o...
