Freckles: Evolutionary Advantage or 'Cancer Factories'?

FORA.tv (May 30, 2013) — Throughout the history of Homo sapiens, skin pigmentation has been a highly labile trait, and similar skin tones have evolved independently numerous times. Skin pigmentation results from an evolutionary compromise between the conflicting demands of protection against ultraviolet radiation and production of vitamin D, and represents one of the best examples of evolution by natural selection acting on the human body. Because skin color is one of the most visible of human traits, it has been used as the primary characteristic for classifying people into races. Dr. Jablonski will discuss the history of skin-based race concepts and the meaning of skin color in the modern world, including its implications for health.

Autism and Cord Blood Stem Cells: FDA Gives Green Lite for Groundbreaking Clinical Trial

MultiVu (Aug. 21, 2012) — Sutter Neuroscience Institute, a recognized Center of Excellence, and CBR (Cord Blood Registry), the world's largest stem cell bank, are launching the first FDA- approved clinical trial to assess the use of a child's own cord blood stem cells to treat select patients with autism. This first-of-its-kind placebo controlled study will evaluate the ability of an infusion of cord blood stem cells to help improve language and behavior. The study is in conjunction with the Sutter Institute for Medical Research.
