New York Times - ALS patient receives firsst injection of iplex in March 2009

 

In a society which subsidizes the cost of prescription drugs for the rest of the world by being charged substantially more for pharmaceuticals THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY, you would think that terminally ill patients in America suffering through debilitating diseases which have no cure, would be afforded the unfettered option of being prescribed any therapeutic approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which they and their doctors mutually agreed upon.

pollard 

The following is a letter which was brought to my attention by a member of the ALS community but originally posted on www.freerepublic.com causing a fair amount of contraversy over the internet concerning the health care debate. It was authored by Dr. Zane Pollard, pictured left, who has been published on numerous occasions in medical journals, with over 90 scientific papers to his credit, and operates out of Children’s Healthcare in Atlanta, GA.

free-health-care 

The various manifestations of legislation detailing a federally funded public option for health care coverage proposed by Congress and the Senate, endorsed by the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration, continues to divide politicians along partisan lines.

Proponents of a public option fundamentally believe that health care in America should not be based on profit and that a single payer system, ie, the federal government pays for everyones health care expenses with tax revenues, should be implemented legislatively, similar to Cuba, Canada and the European Union. Opponents are steadfast in contending that such a system would plunge the government further into debt, and could deal an already ailing economy a fatal blow.

stem-cell-research 

 

National Institutes of Health (NIH) guidelines as currently proposed prohibits federal funding for somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), Somatic cells being adult stem cells. The SCNT technique involves removing the nucleus of an egg cell and replacing it with the nucleus from a different cell in order to create an embryonic stem cell line genetically identical to the donor nucleus. In the case of a donor with a condition such as Lou Gehrig’s disease, the process would yield an embryonic stem cell line that could be used to test specific therapies for that particular patient.
