  1. What's new in this club
    • Hello guest!
  2. Can we just assume that almost ANY virus or bacteria can be spread by blood transfusions? Basically if I get your blood in me.. then I now have WHATEVER you had for the most part.
  3. Biogen and Invitae, two leading biotechnology and genomics companies, recently announced the availability of a rapid results genetic testing program for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The test will reduce the definitive diagnosis from 21 to just four days, at no charge to individuals in the U.S.6 SMA is often a life-threatening disease, characterized by loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and lower brain stem. As it progresses, the disease can cause severe and progressive muscle atrophy and weakness.7 Faster diagnostics will allow for earlier intervention, treatment and, potentially, better medical outcomes for patients with SMA. -------------- 6. Global Newswire, “Biogen and Invitae Announce Availability of Rapid Results in Genetic Testing Program for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) to Improve Speed of Diagnosis for Patients,” Aug 20, 2019. 7.

  4. Lots of 73 year old women have given birth to twin girls. And the twins are at least 30 years old by now.
  5. I guess I am happy for HER....assuming she never had children before. Not so sure what her daughters will think of this in 20 years though.
  6. A 73-year-old woman in India has given birth to twin girls. Erramatti Mangayamma is believed to be the oldest person ever to give birth. She became pregnant through IVF and doctors delivered the babies via caesarian section.
  7. If you go outside this Labor Day weekend, don't forget the bug spray. The dangerous but rare Eastern equine encephalitis virus is flaring up in Michigan, state health officials say, and has been confirmed in two people in Berrien and Kalamazoo counties and is suspected in five more people. The virus, carried by birds and transmitted to humans through the bite of infected mosquitoes, is deadly in 1 in 3 people who contract it, and can cause brain damage and permanent neurological disabilities in those who survive.
