Israel's ALS Research in Action

Donating to Research through...Research!

  Many have only recently become familiarized with Lou Gehrig's disease, also know as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), with the recent popularity of "The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge," which has taken social media by storm, and succeeded in raising millions of dollars for research - specifically, a comprehensive study of the human genome to determine genetic factors in onset and progression of this degenerative disease. What you may not have heard, however, is that before there was the Ice Bucket Challenge to chill the spine, warm the heart, and open the wallet, Israeli biotech company, BrainStorm, has been tirelessly working in the background for years, developing a new and effective treatment for ALS (as well as other debilitating neurodegenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's disease) using adult stem cells, and the results will astound you!

Flesh-eating disease: Hebrew U. scientists reveal initial steps leading to development of necrotizing fasciitis

Research opens way to finding new treatments for bacterial infections

 How does Streptococcus pyogenes, or Group A streptococcus (GAS) — a bacterial pathogen that can colonize humans without causing symptoms or can lead to mild infections — also cause life-threatening diseases such as necrotizing fasciitis (commonly known as flesh-eating disease) and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome?

 This mystery has intrigued many researchers in the field. Now, researchers at the Hebrew University’s Faculty of Medicine have discovered how this bacterium turns deadly. This opens the door to possible future treatments to curb this and other potentially fatal bacteria.

HOW ISRAELI HIGH-TECH HAPPENED

 Israel became a high-tech hothouse because she had to. True, she enjoys favorable conditions for the growth of high-tech industries; chief among them, well-educated, inventive, enterprising people. Relative to the size of her population, Israel has more engineers, and sees more scientific articles published, than any other country in the world (Israel has 135 engineers per 10,000 people; the US has 85). However, the stimulus for the industry's growth has been national survival, both military and economic.

Americas Oil Habit and US Presidential Campaign

Candidate Joe Robinson: 'Presidential Race Ignores America's Fatal Dependence On Foreign Oil'

'Coal Energy Actually Pollutes Far Less Than Oil But Oil Corporations Prevent Conversion'

'New Modification To Car Engines Achieves Substantial Savings In Gasoline Consumption'

 Inventor Joe Robinson, who is running in the Republican presidential primary in New Hampshire on January 10th, has shown that his modification to car engines can get a vast increase in miles per gallon. In a thought provoking interview with David Essing, Robinson explained how his patented invention performed in tests, but why the oil corportations and General Motors have so far turned it down. The modification achieved 49% more miles per gallon, according to the EPA's Federal Test Procedure. His invention dealt with the question of what percentage of the fuel is used to operate the engine and what is the remaining percentage of the fuel that actually pushes the car down the road. The research is purely in the field of mechanical engineering - how to reroute the air-fuel mixture of a gasoline engine to increase net horsepower while significantly improving miles per gallon. In addition to his invention achieving vast savings for American car owners, it would obviously benefit the entire economy. Moreover Robinson argues that America's dependence on foreign oil is bankrupting the country, whereas the building and operating of refineries in the U.S. to produce gasoline from domestic coal, would create jobs and eliminate the import of oil. In his opinion, the U.S. gets four times as much acid rain from oil than it does from coal.
