Umbilical cord blood could replace blood marrow transplants
Derek Kuhs
October 20, 1998
Web posted at: 8:33 p.m. EDT (0033 GMT) From Reporter Louise Schiavone WASHINGTON (CNN) An experimental procedure to use umbilical cord blood instead of bone marrow to treat immune diseases is gaining attention from doctors and patients. Derek Kuhs, 7, has spent much of his life in the hospital due to a rare immune system genetic disorder called chronic granulomatous disease, or CGD. "His white cells can't kick certain types of bacteria and fungi, so he's always open to life-threatening infections," said his mother, Gloria Kuhs. She and her husband are pinning their hopes on a transplant of umbilical cord blood. The cord blood, about 3 to 4 ounces taken from a mother's placenta shortly after childbirth, contains stem cells, the building blocks of all blood cells.

Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Transplants
Bone Marrow Transplants (BMTs) and their cousin the Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant (PBSCT) are moving from the clinical trial area to mainstream treatment for many cancers, including Hodgkin's Disease and Medium/High grade ( aggressive ) Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Transplants are used often for patients who relapse from standard chemotherapy. Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) has been used to treat lymphoma for over ten years, much of that time on a trial basis but now much more in the mainstream. Sometimes lymphoma becomes resistant to treatment with radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Very high doses of chemotherapy may then be used to treat the cancer. Because the high doses of chemotherapy can destroy the patient's bone marrow, marrow is taken from the bones before treatment. The marrow is then frozen, and the patient is given high-dose chemotherapy with or without radiation therapy to treat the cancer. The marrow that was taken out is then thawed and given back through a needle in a vein to replace the marrow that was destroyed. This type of transplant is called an autologous transplant. If the marrow given is taken from another person, the transplant is called an

Alpha Hair Transplants
Hair Transplants: An Introduction
Hair transplants are a modern solution to an age old problem. From ancient biblical times to the Roman period, the specter of male pattern baldness has reared its ugly head. Elisha the prophet suffered from a thinning pate, so too did Julius Caesar, who grew his hair long in the back and combed it all forward. Not everyone looked down on receding hairlines however. Hucbald, a 9th-century writer and composer would have scoffed at the notion of hair transplants. Hucbald wrote the Ecloga de Calvis, a poem in praise of baldness which he dedicated to Hatto, the bald-headed Archbishop of Mainz. In his poem, Hucbald refers to the bald head with its ring of hair as a sort of natural tonsure or crown, and praises the inborn ability of bald men as clerics and kings, as well as warriors and doctors. Of course, since Hucbald was associated with the great Carolingian king, Carolus Calvus, or, as we know him, Charles the Bald, he might have just written the poem to curry favor with his royal patron. Fortunately, in the modern times we live in, men no longer have to be stoic about hair loss. From medications like Rogaine to hair transplants, there are a plethora of options available to stem the tide of baldness.

Arguments for / against Gods

Religion/Philosophy Glossary
On the face of it, there seems to be little reason to question the ethics behind transplanting organs. Apparently one of the greatest achievements of modern surgery, tens of thousands of people are given a new lease on life through the selfless altruism of others who choose to find hope in the midst of tragedy, literally giving of their own bodies in the effort to save others. But this really is more appearance than fact, because right under the surface lurks a morass of ethical dilemmas and controversies which have threatened to undermine the entire practice of transplanting organs. These problems have only grown in scope as new medical advances have been made in recent years, with little prospect of an easy resolution any time soon. What are the sources of organs used in transplantation? How can we make the procurement system more efficient? Should we pay for organs? Should someone who has already received one transplant be allowed a second? Should alcoholics be given liver transplants? Are transplants really worth the tremendous costs?

Yes, there are problems with hair transplants
I did extensive research before undergoing hair transplant surgery in Los Angeles.
Unfortunately, I only heard what I wanted to hear prior to this hair transplant nightmare. Before transplants 1 year later Before 800 hair transplants 1 year later. Not only did the transplants not grow, they damaged my existing hair. Baldness and hair loss are devastating for everyone. If you have ever considered hair transplantation surgery, or undergone a hair transplant procedure than this website is for you. Mini-grafts, micro-grafts, and mega-sessions promise natural hairlines that will last a lifetime. From the photo's above you can see the result hair transplant surgeons don't tell you about. Hair transplants have become a top choice for men suffering from hair loss, receding hairlines, thinning crowns, and male pattern baldness. The truth about transplants may surprise you. I urge you to read this page carefully before considering hair transplants.
I have created this information page for all men experiencing hair loss who may be
considering hair transplantation as a remedy. I have had extensive experience with hair transplants and I have developed this website to share what I have learned.
