University of Louisville doctors to seek ethics review of surgery

YOUR E-MAIL ALERTS University of Louisville Western Kentucky University Research or Create your own Manage alerts What is this? (CNN) Doctors in Kentucky have begun preparing a document to be submitted to an ethics panel at the University of Louisville School of Medicine seeking permission to perform a face transplant, the lead researcher in the endeavor told CNN. "We are in the process of doing that," Dr. John Barker, director of plastic surgery research at the University of Louisville, said Tuesday. "We have a team of about 16 or 17 people." The radical procedure, intended for patients with severe disfigurement, has not been attempted before, though doctors in the past have successfully reattached faces to patients after accidents. The development was first reported in the May 29 issue of New Scientist magazine.

Welcome to Green Mountain Transplants, Inc.
We grow and ship 72 and 32 cell single variety and multiple variety flats of greenhouse propagated vegetables, annuals and perennials. Orders for multiple variety flats are filled by carefully packing empty 72 or 32-cell flats with fully developed transplants pulled, rootball and all, from our inventory of single variety flats. Each completed flat is carefully boxed together with an identification diagram designating the color and variety of transplant contained in each cell. Your flat is shipped the same day it is filled. Our plants are considerably more advanced than most plants sold as ‘plugs’. Actual size of transplants will vary from crop to crop. For comparative purposes, tomatoes are typically 10 to 14 inches in height. Flats are lightweight and sturdy with cells containing a bottom hole to provide drainage as well as air flow which prunes the tap root and encourages dense rooting that stays intact when removed for transplanting. 670 Alfred Road - Arundel, Maine 04046

    On this page: If you have advanced and permanent kidney failure, kidney transplantation may be the treatment option that allows you to live much like you lived before your kidneys failed. Since the 1950s, when the first kidney transplants were performed, much has been learned about how to prevent rejection and minimize the side effects of medicines. A successful transplant takes a coordinated effort from your whole health care team, including your nephrologist, transplant surgeon, transplant coordinator, pharmacist, dietitian, and social worker. But the most important members of your health care team are you and your family. By learning about your treatment, you can work with your health care team to give yourself the best possible results, and you can lead a full, active life. Top
    When Your Kidneys Fail
    Healthy kidneys clean your blood by removing excess fluid, minerals, and wastes. They also make hormones that keep your bones strong and your blood healthy. When your kidneys fail, harmful wastes build up in your body, your blood pressure may rise, and your body may retain excess fluid and not make enough red blood cells. When this happens, you need treatment to replace the work of your failed kidneys.

By age 50, about half of all men and nearly 30 percent of women experience the condition referred to as "androgenetic alopecia," or "male pattern balding." This occurs as a result of genetic and hormone influences upon certain hair follicles, typically those on top of the scalp. Persons who undergo this type of hair loss have four options:

    On this page:
    What are pancreatic islets?
    The pancreas, an organ about the size of a hand, is located behind the lower part of the stomach. It makes insulin and enzymes that help the body digest and use food. Throughout the pancreas are clusters of cells called the islets of Langerhans. Islets are made up of several types of cells, including beta cells that make insulin.
    The pancreas is located in the abdomen behind the stomach. Islets within the pancreas contain beta cells, which produce insulin. Top
    What is pancreatic islet transplantation?
    In an experimental procedure called islet transplantation, islets are taken from the pancreas of a deceased organ donor. The islets are purified, processed, and transferred into another person. Once implanted, the beta cells in these islets begin to make and release insulin. Researchers hope that islet transplantation will help people with type 1 diabetes live without daily injections of insulin.
    Research Developments
    Scientists have made many advances in islet transplantation in recent years. Since reporting their findings in the June 2000 issue of the

    Starting Vegetable Transplants
    Contact: Diane Relf, Extension Specialist, Environmental Horticulture
    Posted April 1997 Home gardeners attempting to start their own vegetable transplants for their garden need to keep in mind 4 points:
  • the time the plants are needed (or seeding dates) potting soil or soil mix considerations light temperature
  • T iming of seeding dates: S oil mix: Quite often gardeners or commercial growers try to sterilize their topsoil to produce vegetable transplants. It's fun to be a do-it-yourselfer, using only homegrown resources including garden soil, but the commercially prepared "artificial soils" consisting of peat moss, vermiculite, perlite, and pine bark are lightweight, free from plant pests and soil-borne diseases, and drain very well. The result is far superior in performance compared to garden soil when placed in cell packs or other small transplant-growing containers. L ight intensity: T emperature: Fluorescent tubes emit a lot of warmth. To compensate for this warmth, keep plants growing on the cool side to promote stocky versus succulent growth. The best results may be accomplished by turning off or turning down to 55 degrees F all other heat in the room where your plants are started. A cool basement is an excellent area for starting plants under lights. If a warm room is used with its own heat source keeping normal air temperatures in the 70s, the addition of fluorescent growing lights over seedling trays will provide too warm an environment. The only exception to this rule is for the germination process. Temperature requirements for germination are quite different from "growing on" temperatures. After good 80 degrees F germination, 60 degrees is preferable for growing out most vegetable transplants to keep them stocky and healthy.

    Face-off over facial transplants
    Doctors prepare for surgery, but key questions remain
    Ho/epa/sipa / Sipa Press
    An illustration shows the stages of a face transplant. Surgeons from the University of Louisville in Kentucky are in the process of requesting formal permission to perform the controversial procedure.
    By By Arthur Caplan COMMENTARY MSNBC A team of doctors at the University of Louisville in Kentucky is moving forward with a plan to attempt the world’s first face transplant. They have applied for permission from the University’s research ethics committee to remove a face from a cadaver and transfer it to a live volunteer willing to go through with the surgery. If approved, the operation could take place before the end of this year. For those who have suffered terrible physical trauma, such as burns or the ravages of oral cancer, and who have been unable to adjust to their disfigurement, this radical new form of surgery offers tremendous hope. However, the ethical question is whether these surgeons are really ready to offer this hope. The reason the team at Louisville believes they are prepared to try this incredible operation is that they have already been successful in transplanting hands taken from cadavers. To date, one of the most difficult tissues to transplant is skin. The body’s first line of defense is especially sensitive to foreign tissue and, as a result, skin transplants have limited what could be done with limbs, hands or other external organs. The Louisville group has developed a powerful combination of drugs that helps prevent the body from rejecting transplanted skin, allowing for their success with hand transplantation. The team believes they can apply this technique to face transplants as well.
