Canadian Cancer Society urges for mining, export permission denial In a letter delivered to Quebec Premier Jean Charest, the Canadian Cancer Culture is urging the premier not to approve a $58 million loan guarantee to Jeffrey Asbestos Mines, located in Quebec, for the renewal of asbestos export and mining. Granting a loan assurance to the mine will help pass on the global epidemic of asbestos-related cancers and damage Canada’s reputation as a global leader in public wellness, says the letter.

The procedure was extremely successful tested mice, the study found these scaffolds to be a far more effective means of regenerating cartilage than traditional therapy. The shrinkage of the cartilage occurs frequently in other tissue engineering methods , and often makes the wrong – size replacement tissue for implantation, do not occur in the study. The framework must newly grown newly grown cartilage of its volume during cultivation and after the procedure..
Three dimensionalices Advance 3D Tissue Engineering at StevensA research team led by Dr. Woo Lee and Dr. Hongjun Wang of Stevens Institute of Technology Co – management has a paper describing a new method for three-dimensional produced released tissue models for studying bacterial infection of orthopedic implants. Joung – Hyun Lee Stevens and Dr. Jeffrey Kaplan of the New Jersey Dental School, are co-authors of the research. Their work, which shows in the journal Tissue Engineering, a physiologically relevant approach for studying infection prevention strategies and emulating antibiotic delivery using 3D bone tissues cultured in microfluidic devices.
