The experimental stem cell

Breast-growing approach, called Neopec, will allow breast cancer victims to re-grow breasts within six months – eliminating the need for implants or cosmetic surgery.

It would also destroy the need for foreign bodies being inserted such as silicon implants.

The Melbourne-based Bernard O''Brien institute of Microsurgery, which pioneered the procedure, could revolutionise the billion-dollar international cosmetic surgery industry by allowing women to grow their own bigger breasts naturally.

Five women will undergo the radical surgery within weeks ahead of a three-year-trial.

If successful, the procedure could become widely available to breast cancer patients.

The revolutionary technique relies on surgeons implanting a biodegradable synthetic breast-shaped chamber beneath the skin on a woman's chest to act as a scaffold for the new breast to grow in.

They then redirect a blood vessel from the woman's underarm through the chamber to a 5ml piece of the patient's own fat, which spontaneously grows to fill a fist-sized space and forms a new breast over the next four to six months.

The fat tissue stops growing when it reaches the chamber to ensure the desired shape and size, while the chamber degrades after the breast is formed allowing for a simple one-operation process.

"We strongly believe that if this works this will replaces silicone implants. It is a much better product because if you get fatter or thinner it does the same thing and it naturally forms as a natural breast implant," the Daily Telegraph quoted Bernard O''Brien Institute director Professor Wayne Morrison as saying.

Stem Cell Technology New Cancer Treatments

Indianapolis researchers are developing technology which could lessen negative side affects during stem cell transplants for cancer patients. general Biotechnology's apparatus pumps bone marrow stem cells through a especially designed tube. The fiber filled tube moderately cleans the Dimethyl Sulfoxide preservative from the bone marrow transplant whiles still maintaining the cell’s efficacy. DMSO is a usually applied preservative which increases the shelf life of cells, but can cause complications with patients when it is injected into their system.

“There has been a demand for this technology as long as frozen bone marrow transplants have been used to treat patients. This project originated through our company’s mission of listening to physicians and specifically developing technologies to meet critical needs,” said Erik J. Woods, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of General BioTechnology. “Over 30,000 people a year in this country receive this type of procedure, our hope is that our system will help yield better outcomes with fewer complications.”

Concept: Cryotherapy / C.I.C. A New, Better Approach to Cancer

The long wait is over and many of us did not know this that cancer is already curable thanks to the technology of new cryo-surgery they say that this type of method is already existed and the only hospital who apply this method is in china at Fuda Hospital-Guangzhou they take a histolic approach in treating cancer. Cancer therapy goes much further than just chemotherapy,radiation and conventional surgery. Along with their award winning history of successful using cryosurgery to remove solid tumors, Fuda uses immunotheraphy as the key treatment to enhance greatly the immune system - specially after hash chemotherapy to slow the spread of cancer , prevent metastasis and improve general health. Using Fuda Method we believe it is necessary to apply two lines of approach which is of equal importance and complementary to one another:

What is Immunotherapy (CIC)?

Basically refers to everything that research has shown to boost the immune system and restrict the effects of the cancer and its associated symptoms. Immonunotherapy is a general term that refers to the range of cutting edges as well as traditional medicines that we combine to enhance the body's immune system. Immunotherapy includes such therapies as:

- Cytokine Include killer Cell's (CIK)
- Dendritic Cells (DC)
- Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM)
- Mixed Vaccines

All the components in our CIC been shown to have a strong inhibiting effect on cancer. Immunotherapy is especially good for preventing metastasis and recurrence slowing the growth of cancer, improving general Health, and boosting the immune system after immune-suppressing effects chemotherapy

What is Cryosurgery?

Cryosurgery is an important technique for the removal and destruction of tumors. It destroys tumors by using cycle of freezing and thawing. By using probes that are inserted in the tumor a ice ball is formed at the tip of the probe. This ice ball grows larger and larger until it completely envelopes the tumor: Once the temperatures falls below -40 Celsius, ice crystal form within the cancer cells Once this it occurs, cell death is almost certain.

Cryosurgery's destructive effects on tumors are due to two major mechanisms:one immediate, the immune system of the patient becomes more sensitive to the type of the cancer being destroyed by cryosurgery. Basically, the body's immune system becomes more aware of that specific cancer and raises an alarm the to rest of the immune system to attack that particular cancer. Any primary tumor tissue undamaged by the cryosurgery. Basically, the body's immune system becomes more aware of that specific cancer and raises an alarm the rest of the immune system to attack the particular cancer. Any primary tumors tissue undamaged by the cryosurgery is more likely to destroyed by the immune system after cryosurgery. this response is called the 'cryo-immunological response.
