ACAM's Member of the Month: Dr. Robert Rowen, M.D.
ACAM
Dr. Rowen is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Johns Hopkins University followed by UCSF medical school (1975).

    Las Vegas Guardian Express
    Maybe you know someone who has been diagnosed with autism. Perhaps it is your neighbor, your nephew or even your own child. Those living day to day with individuals experiencing autistic symptoms are often faced with difficult challenges in communication and the basics, which the rest of the population would describe as "normal living." Many parents and advocates of autism have shown links between the administration of vaccinations and the on-set of autism, despite denial from the medical community.

    Hormones help diabetes
    TeleManagement
    Hormone replacement therapy helps women with diabetes control their blood sugar after the menopause. Researchers in Oakland, Calif., have surveyed more than 15,000 women of average age 65 to see what effect hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has on diabetes. They found that women on HRT tended to have lower levels of blood sugar, which predicts a good outcome in the long term.

    Scientists, including Indian-origin researchers, have for the first time discovered that Down syndrome may be linked to faulty stem cell regulation in the body. The learning and physical disabilities that affect people with Down syndrome may be due at least in part to defective stem cell regulation throughout the body, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

    MALE MENOPAUSE


    Low estrogen may play a role in 'male menopause'
    Miami Herald
    TV ads tout testosterone treatments for "low T," but surprising new research shows a different hormone may play a role in less sex drive and more fat as men age. Estrogen — the female hormone — is needed by men, too, and the study gives the first clear evidence that too little of it can cause certain "male menopause" symptoms.

    Digital Journal
    As stem cell clinical trials for multiple sclerosis (MS) patients become more common, it is crucial for researchers to understand the biologic changes and therapeutic effects of older donor stem cells. A new study appearing in the latest issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine is the first to demonstrate that, in fact, adipose-derived stem cells donated by older people are less effective than cells from their younger counterparts.

    Brain cancer severity linked with oxidation state of iron
    Chemistry World
    New research shows that the higher the malignancy grade of a brain tumour, the higher the iron(ii) to iron(iii) ratio in human brain tissue. The finding could point to new approaches for measuring the malignancy grade of tumors. Among the various types of cancer, brain cancer survival rates are one of the lowest. One of the processes involved in cancer formation is the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which interfere with DNA replication and damage cells.

    Scientists have created stem cells within the body of laboratory mice for the first time in a landmark study showing that it may be possible one day to repair damaged human organs in situ without the need for transplant operations. Until now stem cells created by a new genetic engineering technique have only been created in vitro in the laboratory, but the researchers were able to perform gene therapy on living mice to generate the stem cells in vivo.
