Hepatitis C Virus and Natural Compounds: a New Antiviral Approach?

Abstract

Hepatitis C is a major global health burden with an estimated 160 million infected individuals worldwide. This long-term disease evolves slowly, often leading to chronicity and potentially to liver failure. There is no anti-HCV vaccine, and, until recently, the only treatment available, based on pegylated interferon and ribavirin, was partially effective, and had considerable side effects.

The first 3D printed organ -- a liver -- is expected this year

Approximately 18 people die every day waiting for an organ transplant. But that may change someday sooner than you think -- thanks to 3D printing.

Advances in the 3D printing of human tissue have moved fast enough that San Diego-based bio-printing company Organovo now expects to unveil the world's first printed organ -- a human liver -- next year.

Yet another vaccine researcher caught faking research

Yet another vaccine researcher has been caught faking research on a bogus AIDS vaccine, adding to the pattern of scientific fraud and criminality that characterizes the modern-day vaccine industry. Dr. Dong-Pyou Han from Iowa State University has resigned this week after admitting he spiked rabbit blood samples with healthy human blood to falsely show the presence of antibodies that would "prove" his AIDS vaccine worked.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) was so convinced by the fraud that they gave Han $19 million in research funding. The NIH later found the fraud after attempting to replicate Han's work and figuring out something was terribly wrong with the research.

Surprising Discovery: Skin Communicates With Liver

Researchers from the University of Southern Denmark have discovered that the skin is capable of communicating with the liver. The discovery has surprised the scientists, and they say that it may help our understanding of how skin diseases can affect the rest of the body.

About the Affordable Healthcare Act and Pre Existing Conditions

Based on Lloyd's findings when attempting to check out health plans compliant with the ACA I tried to verify these statements but could not recreate the the answers given to find these statements that Lloyd DID find while attempting to comply.  Personally, I found the the plans and the laws to be so complicated and variable that I don't understand how anyone can make an informed decision based on the information provided by HealthCare.gov or any of the other health insurance corporate welfare recipients claiming to care for patients with the tools provided.  You may want to track changes with ObamacareWatch but I did not find many answers in their info either.

To find these disclosures Lloyd was looking at the first 2014 ACA compliant blue cross plan. It said it does not cover prescription drugs so you have to buy the additional plan at the bottom for an additional 107 a month. Then if you click on pre-existing info you find the statements below.  I could not recreate this.  I could not determine my monthly out of pocket expense for the "mandatory" health coverage.  I could not understand how the government expects people at the poverty level to pay Anything out of pocket for health coverage that they are being "forced" to purchase.  You can't squeeze blood from a stone, hopefully this won't turn into an excuse to put stones in prison for not having blood.  These laws seem to be a huge financial boon to health insurance companies and have little to no positive impact on people who actually need an Affordable healthCare Act.
