"Frankenstein" genetic experiments on humans will see massive "organ factory" farms of animals growing human organs to enrich the transplant industry

(Natural News) Animal-human hybrids are closer to becoming reality than you might think as researchers in Tokyo have been given permission by the Japanese government to grow hybrid embryos and bring them to full term. The goal of the project is to farm human organs within animals to create a supply of organs that can...

Publication date: October 2019Source: Molecular Immunology, Volume 114Author(s): Jun Chen, Shengjun Lu, Xiufang Weng, Zhihui Liang, Xiongwen WuAbstractHLA-A2 is the most common serological HLA type among all ethnic groups. Through advances in DNA typing, more than 800 subtypes of HLA-A2 have been identified, and the existence of heterogeneity of antigen specificity among the HLA-A2 subtypes has been suggested by retrospective analyses of allogeneic transplantation patients and by studies of antigen amino acid structure. However, prior to this study, the antigenicity of a given subtype or the mismatch extent between two giv...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: American Journal of Kidney DiseasesAuthor(s): Olivier Niel, Paul BastardArtificial intelligence is playing an increasingly important role in many fields of medicine, assisting physicians in most steps of patient management. In nephrology, artificial intelligence can already be used to improve clinical care, hemodialysis prescriptions, and follow-up of transplant recipients. However, many nephrologists are still unfamiliar with the basic principles of medical artificial intelligence. This review seeks to provide an overview of medical artificial intelligence relevant ...

We report a rare case of a primary intraventricular CNS classical HL-PTLD in a male patient, 18 years following renal transplantation. The location allowed for safe neurosurgical intervention which resolved the symptom of elevated intracranial pressure and allowed for induction of a Rituximab-based chemotherapy regimen. Both the ventricular location of the PTLD and Hodgkin Lymphoma PTLD are themselves individually quite rare and have not previously been reported together. The unique location allowed safe neurosurgical intervention which quickly resolved the symptom of elevated intracranial pressure and allowed for induct...

CONCLUSION: The splenic artery has quite different variation types and knowledge of these variations are useful for the planning and conduct of surgical and radiological procedures of the upper abdomen, including laparoscopic operations. Our study is the first in the medical literature classifying variations in the origin and branching pattern of the splenic artery. PMID: 31436304 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Our experience shows that patients with diagnoses of acute retinal necrosis or progressive outer retinal necrosis have a poor visual prognosis. The occurrence of cytomegalovirus retinitis signifies a very unfavorable survival prognosis in patients who underwent hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; the patients in our study died within 1 year from cytomegalovirus retinitis diagnosis.

Lung transplantation is an established therapeutic option for patients with irreversible end-stage pulmonary disease limiting life expectancy and quality of life. Common indications for lung transplantation include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. Complications of lung transplantation can be broadly divided etiologically into surgical, infectious, immunologic, or neoplastic. Moreover, specific complications often occur within a certain time interval following surgery, which can be broadly classified as...

ConclusionsIn recipients concurrently listed for SLT and DLT, overall survival was similar regardless of the eventual procedure. These data suggests that the previously purported survival advantage for DLT may purely represent selection bias, and should not preclude the use of SLT in appropriately-selected IPF patients.
