One of a handful of Britain's remaining possessions, Gibraltar is an interesting anachronism says Gillian Vine. Last year, sabre-rattling Spaniards soured relations with Britain, saying it was time they had Gibraltar back. No you can't have it, said the British Government, supported by most of Gibraltar's 29,500 citizens, who rallied around the slogan ''Let no-one dare untie this knot''. The Spanish response was border checks with consequently long queues and delays, so I was pleased to come into Gibraltar by sea, during a port-hopping Mediterranean cruise.
Titanium wedding rings -Boone Titanium Rings is the industry leader in Meteorite Rings, Carbon fiber inlay, and Hardwood inlay rings. We pioneered the use of these materials in titanium rings. We are also leaders in titanium tension sets, making the tough asymmetric designs that others can't do. We have a complete line of Black Zirconium rings, including tension set engagement rings.
Why is this clinical study being done? 35% of cats will ultimately develop chronic kidney disease which is the leading cause of death in older cats. There are no current therapeutic options for cats with CKD other than renal transplantation, of which is not typically an option for most owners. Most of our efforts aim at improving uremic signs with food, dietary supplements, and antacids, but there are no current methods for improving the function of the kidney directly. Stem cells are thought to improve, repair, and aid in the growth of damaged tissue through various mechanisms. Since renal failure is so common in cats and renal cell death is the ultimate result, improving the health and environment of the cells that remain could improve the overall function of the kidneys and ultimately improve the survival times and quality of life in these patients. The aim is to use the cat’s own adipose derived stem cells to improve renal function directly. Stem cells can be delivered in various ways and research has shown that intravenous injection results in first pass delivery of the stem cells to be highest in the pulmonary capillary beds. If the cells are directly delivered into the renal artery then the first capillary bed to uptake the stem cells are the glomeruli and tubular vascular endothelial cells of the nephron, resulting in more dramatic uptake and regenerative capabilities. Study Aims 1) to perform a pilot study on 6 cats with IRIS stage III CKD using intra‐arterial autologous MSC delivery into the renal artery to assess for short term safety and efficacy. 2) if phase 1 proves safe and effective over a 3 month period then the second aim is to investigate and compare the effect of autologous MSC injected via either the renal artery or cephalic (or saphenous) vein on CKD progression in a placebo controlled study (an additional 24 cats). The authors hypothesize that MSC therapy coupled with conventional therapy will 1) improve renal function based on GFR studies, 2) reduce the mortality from renal failure, 3) reduce all cause mortality, and 4) improve quality of life compared with cats treated only by conventional therapy. In addition, MSC therapy delivered via renal arterial injection prolongs survival compared with cats receiving MSC through peripheral venous injection. Financial Benefits to Participate in This Study for Cats Who Qualify (Phase I) Free stem cell harvesting, isolation, and intra‐arterial injection Free follow‐up for 3 years (on an every 3 months basis) after stem cell delivery including all examinations, blood work, urinalysis, urine cultures, blood pressures, radiographs, ultrasounds, and GFR studies. Each cat in Phase I will have approximately $14,000 of treatment and diagnostics covered over this 3 year period. ...
Stem cell therapy offers potential in the regeneration of craniofacial bone defects; however, it has not been studied clinically. Tissue repair cells (TRCs) isolated from bone marrow represent a mixed stem and progenitor population enriched in CD90- and CD14-positive cells. In this phase I/II, randomized, controlled feasibility trial, we investigated TRC cell therapy to reconstruct localized craniofacial bone defects. Twenty-four patients requiring localized reconstruction of jawbone defects participated in this longitudinal trial. For regenerative therapy, patients were randomized to receive either guided bone regeneration (GBR) or TRC transplantation. At 6 or 12 weeks following treatment, clinical and radiographic assessments of bone repair were performed. Bone biopsies were harvested and underwent quantitative micro-computed tomographic (µCT) and bone histomorphometric analyses. Oral implants were installed, subsequently restored, and functionally loaded with tooth restorations. Reconstructed sites were assessed for 1 year following therapy. No study-related, serious adverse events were reported. Following therapy, clinical, radiographic, tomographic, and histological measures demonstrated that TRC therapy accelerated alveolar bone regeneration compared to GBR therapy. Additionally, TRC treatment significantly reduced the need for secondary bone grafting at the time of oral implant placement with a fivefold decrease in implant bony dehiscence exposure (residual bone defects) as compared to GBR-treated sites (p < 0.01). Transplantation of TRCs for treatment of alveolar bone defects appears safe and accelerates bone regeneration, enabling jawbone reconstruction with oral implants. The results from this trial support expanded studies of TRC therapy in the treatment of craniofacial deformities (ClinicalTrials.gov number CT00755911). Key words: Bone regeneration;...
Mountain View Drifter Big Bear Cookbook General A few general rules when cooking with bear: When cooking to well-done, a meat thermometer reads l90°F. When well-done meat is pierced with a fork, the juices should run clear, not pink. Generally use dry cooking methods for tender, fat bear and moist cooking methods and/or marinades for older, stringy bears, although marinades may be used for any bear. If you feel the bear is a bit gamy and/or tough, soak for 24 hours in a solution of 1 Tablespoon salt and 1 Tablespoon vinegar to1 quart of water. When roasting you should always cook on rack about 2 inches above bottom of pan as bear is quite greasy. Always place about one inch of water in bottom of pan. A most important feature is the marinade, so here goes. Marinades Black Bear Marinade 1 cup dry red wine (cheapest) 1/2 cup olive oil 1 onion chopped 6 cloves garlic crushed 1 sliced carrot 1 tbsps. Dried tarragon, may want to half this as tarragon is strong salt and pepper adjust to your own taste Place meat in roaster, roast or steaks, in marinade and cover and refrigerate overnight turning often prior bedtime. Remove from marinade approx., 2 hrs. prior cooking to allow meat to come to room temp. Strain marinade and reserve liquid for gravy. Bear Marinade You can marinate one of two ways: (1) Put the meat in a container of milk with lots of garlic and let set overnight in the refrigerator. (2) Put the meat in a container of Italian salad dressing and leave in refrigerator overnight. Make sure the meat is submersed in the milk or dressing and keep covered with Saran wrap. It doesn't hurt to turn every once in a while when you think of it to mix the meat up and get the meat on top to the bottom and vice-versa. Mountain View Drifter P.O.
