TWO MEN CURED OF HIV AFTER BONE MARROW THERAPY IN AUSTRALIA


Two Australian men have been found to be HIV-free after receiving stem cells to treat cancer. The two patients' virus levels became undetectable after bone-marrow therapy with stem cells.

They are still on antiretroviral therapy (ART) "as a precaution", but those drugs alone could not be responsible for bringing the virus to such low levels, said David Cooper,  director of the Kirby Institute at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, who led the discovery.

Cooper began searching for patients who had been purged of the HIV virus after attending a presentation by a United States team last year at a conference of the International AIDS Society in Kuala Lumpur.

CHRISTIANO'S MOTHER TRIED TO ABORT HIM DURING PREGNANCY!

The mother of Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that she drank alcohol and ran until she ‘dropped’ in an attempt to abort him while she was pregnant.

Dolores Aveiro revealed the story in a biography called Mother Courage, which was released in Portugal yesterday.

In the book, Mrs Aveiro admitted that she tried to abort Ronaldo, who is the youngest of four children -by drinking warm beer and running ’till she dropped’ following the refusal of doctors to carry out the procedure.

SEE THE WORLD'S LARGEST KIDNEY STONE



In the pic: X-ray picture of the stone before the surgery( above).
The stone after removal, the patient( wearing specs) himself seeing it!(below)
The largest kidney stones most doctors ever get to see is the size of a golf ball. But in this picture the stone has the size of a coconut.

This 2.5lb ( about 1.13 Kg) and 17 cm in diameter kidney stone was removed from a patient in Hungary named Sandor Sarkadi and the surgery was done in Kenez Gyula Hospital, Debrecen.

Kidney stones vary in size. They can be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a golf ball, which makes Mr Sarkadi's stone all the more remarkable.

Most stones pass through the body by themselves within hours or a few days. Doctors advise patients to drink a lot of fluids to help this process, and sometimes recommend a special diet. Stones of a larger variety have to be surgically removed.

PARALYSED MAN MOVED HIS HANDS USING HIS THOUGHTS- SUCCESS OF NEUROBRIDGE TECHNOLOGY


For the first time ever, a quadriplegic man has moved his hand using his own thoughts. Ian Burkhart, a 23-year-old who became paralyzed after a diving accident four years ago, is the first patient to try out Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralysed limb.

Burkhart is the first of a potential five participants in a clinical study by the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Centre and Battelle.
