Iris Lugo Carro, specialist of the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) in Havana informed the Cuban vaccine HeberNasvac, for the treatment of chronic B, created in the institution, hepatitis is under clinical evaluation in collaboration with the French company Abivax .
HeberNasvac combines surface antigen and nucleocapsid hepatitis B, two recombinant proteins produced by the CIGB.
The therapeutic proposal nasal administered subcutaneously and causes fewer adverse reactions and has greater antiviral efficacy than existing treatments for this disease.
Note: As admirable as Cuba’s health care is, the fallacious mindset concerning vaccines prevails. We (biotech) will introduce novel/new genetic material into the human body to protect against existing and new/novel ailments.
ETC Group Releases Report on Synthetic Biology
Submitted on 16 January 2007
“Genetic engineering is passé,” said Pat Mooney, Executive Director of ETC Group. “Today, scientists aren’t just mapping genomes and manipulating genes, they’re building life from scratch – and they’re doing it in the absence of societal debate and regulatory oversight,” said Mooney.
Synbio – dubbed “genetic engineering on steroids” – is inspired by the convergence of nano-scale biology, computing and engineering. Using a laptop computer, published gene sequence information and mail-order synthetic DNA, just about anyone has the potential to construct genes or entire genomes from scratch (including those of lethal pathogens). Scientists predict that within 2-5 years it will be possible to synthesise any virus; the first de novo bacterium will make its debut in 2007; in 5-10 years simple bacterial genomes will be synthesised routinely and it will become no big deal to cobble together a designer genome, insert it into an empty bacterial cell and – voilà – give birth to a living, self-replicating organism. Other synthetic biologists hope to reconfigure the genetic pathways of existing organisms to perform new functions – such as manufacturing high-value drugs or chemicals.
Engineering Life and Livelihoods
29 October 2014
So here’s a thought experiment. What if living things were actually machines? The sort of machines that you could take apart, reprogram, and rewire to do something entirely new? If so, plants could just be rewired to glow like light bulbs or yeast tinkered with to produce vanilla. The biotechnology industry has actually spent years trying to think about life this way, and that is the impetus to a rapidly exploding new industry called synthetic biology.
Don’t get me wrong: living things are not machines. A bacteria or a yeast is a complex evolving organism. It’s as different from a machine as a skyscraper is from a cloud. But the field of synthetic biology tries to bring orderly engineering principles to the messy stuff of life; it tries to recharacterise living organisms as engineerable.
Note: Synthetic biology = Genetically modified organism (GMO).
WHO Glyphosate Report Ends Thirty Year Cancer Cover Up – See more at: http://www.naturalblaze.com/2015/03/who-glyphosate-report-ends-thirty-year.html#
It is now 2015 and WHO has put glyphosate’s cancer causing ability back in the spotlight. The question is who is to blame for this shocking lack of protection for public health? The answer is the U.S. government, who have pushed glyphosate around the World as part of their campaign to support the U.S. biotech industry in their attempt to dominate global agriculture.
The thirty-year glyphosate cancer cover up will go down in history as yet another failure, by the U.S. government, the EPA and worldwide regulators, to put the health of the general public before the need to protect and expand company profits. – See more at: http://www.naturalblaze.com/2015/03/who-glyphosate-report-ends-thirty-year.html#sthash.gPuwqAAP.NEiFg4OU.dpuf
Note: It is simple! A group of human beings using violence and lies (fraud), seek dominance over other humans. By what right?
Divine right? Busted does not work. What God said you could lie, cheat, poison and kill for social dominance?
There is NO God, its all an accident, chance, evolution? Still does not work. Since they are carbon based beings like you, they have no more right to tell you what to do and hence have no authority to use lies, poisons or murder (war).
So group A demands group B inject poisons their bodies, eat GMO foods, so group B emphatically says: “Why don’t you just f@#k off!”
So that leaves force and deceit as only mechanisms to maintain social dominance.
Hey Billy boy, Monsanto, Syngenta, Merck, Pfizer, GSK, have I summed it up nicely for you?
Small farmers in Africa and elsewhere often lack the income and training to buy and use biotech seeds and may become skeptical of technology if new products are used improperly, the 56-year-old son of billionaire Warren Buffett said. Howard Buffett, a board member of his father’s company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc
“Stop thinking that what we know how to do is going to work for somebody else,” Buffett said. “We need to be intelligent enough and humble enough to admit that we don’t know everything and that we certainly don’t know some things in other parts of the world that need to happen.”
Buffett, a Berkshire director since 1993, is an ambassador against hunger for the United Nations World Food Program and runs the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, which aids subsistence farming. His father once said that Howard, who farms land in Nebraska and South Africa, “would rather spend an evening on a tractor in the field than on a date with Angelina Jolie.”
