July 2010 Newsletter
Dear Bryan,

This summer has been very busy for us with exciting new projects and lots of travel.  We been to Detroit, Cleveland, New Jersey and New York all in the past couple of weeks, but for your convenience we will be attending these conferences:

ACS meeting in Boston from August 22 to 26 and
ChemOutsourcing conference in New Jersey, from September 14 to 16.

If you are available to meet with us during any of these occasions, you can contact Mel Bellott and we would be happy to set aside the time to discuss your Medicinal Chemistry and Custom Synthesis needs.

 

Researchers identify what makes MRSA lethal

Staphylococcus aureus is a type of bacteria commonly found on the skin that is relatively harmless unless it gets into the bloodstream, where it can cause blood poisoning and create abscesses in organs such as the heart and brain.

MRSA, or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, can be particularly dangerous because it is resistant to treatment with most antibiotics. Read More

Unfortunately, it's often not a very good chance. Matching donor lungs are rare, and many would -be recipients die waiting for the transplants that could save their lives. 

Specialists in the emerging field of tissue engineering have been hard at work on this for years. But they've been frustrated by the problem of coaxing undifferentiated stem cells to develop into the specific cell types that populate different locations in the lung.
