    friends has been present. This has allowed her to reflect upon her life involving universal themes, such as having peace and relieving pain. Aldridge and a few others have sung a meditation and played guitars to match the theme raised by Lois earlier. After sixteen minutes, her physician checked on her and saw that she had a relaxed expression on her face. This treatment has shown that her pain and suffering can both be alleviated. Lois has been able to change her state of mind by using affirmation. This shows that not only is she aware of her own needs through music, but she is able to connect with her close relationships as well, which made her stronger (Aldridge, D.). In a research study done on patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation, researchers O’Neill and Pavlicevic used music therapy to analyze the meaning of the therapy instead of the process itself. For instance, they have conducted interviews with a patient, the patient’s mother, and the child’s therapist. The researchers both have to analyze the different viewpoints using music therapy. They want the adults to describe their experience with the music therapy and how their experience can better shape the process for the child patients. A psychologist has interviewed the child using a coding procedure (an interview with the child patient which can then be deciphered to interpret the child’s needs). Then, the data from the interview has gotten reorganized to figure out the actual psychosocial needs…

    beyond great compared to what I see children doing now. I was always outside playing sports and a game called ditch. Ditch was formulated by the older kids and we were divided by team captains. There would be two teams, on team would hide while the other team looked for them. We would use the street we lived on and another block to hide. This game was played only at night where all the thrill happens. Then, a major disaster popped up and destroyed me, my parents, and my brothers. When I was…

    Savior Siblings I have chosen to write my research paper on the topic of savior siblings. A savior sibling is the selection of an embryo that can be used as a potential source of donor organs or cells for an older brother or sister with a life-threatening medical condition. These medical conditions mostly consist of cancer or Fanconi anemia. Fanconi anemia is a condition that affects many parts of the body, mostly bone marrow. This topic first became popular after Jodi Picoult’s novel, My…

    2. Describe the process of autologous transplantation for the treatment of this patient’s disease. (5 marks). Stem cells are removed from patient and stored in a freezer. Patient will then receive high dose chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy to get rid of circulating tumor cells in the blood. The removed stem cells are transfused, replacing the destroyed tissue and re-establishing hematopoietic function in the patient (Nichols, 2016). • Nichols, H, 2016. Bone Marrow Transplant. 22…

    STEM CELLS Stem cells are very homogenous due to the fact that they are of the same family type or lineage characteristically speaking. They are differentiated from other cells by two features. The first feature is that they are able to divide by cell division and the second feature is that under specific experimental conditions they can be directed to become tissue cells with certain functions. Stem cells are able to transform or regenerate themselves growing into the body’s approximately 200…

    begins to form a mass of cells called a blastocyst. It is from this mass of cells that all of the human body originates from. The nuclei of all of the cells in the blastocyst contain genes that turn some cells into bone cells and others into skin cells. The cells found in the inner mass of the blastocyst are called embryonic stem cells and have the potential to differentiate into almost all other cells in the body; the pluripotency of these cells makes them very viable in the research of disease…

    breakthrough in 2006 where scientists had discovered a way to genetically reprogram mouse mature cells to convert them into a cell that has embryonic stem cell properties and these cells were named ‘induced pluripotent stem cells’ although it is still undetermined whether this new stem cell and embryonic stem cells are critically different. Human induced pluripotent stem cells were developed a year later in 2007. Scientists are optimistic about these stem cells and they are now being used within…

    Umbilical cord blood is rapidly becoming a blood source of interest to the medical world. Like bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, or UCB, has been declared to hold a desirable supply of hematopoietic stem cells. Hematopoietic stem cells, or HSCs, are multipotent cells in the body that, upon being stimulated by specific growth factors, will differentiate into mature, functional cells. When looking at the use of UCB, it is important to determine the method of extraction, what this specific…

    past ten years’ medical advancements have escalated with stem cell research, therapies helping individuals with diseases and improving their overall health. Are you relying on a dialysis machine, ventilator, respirator, a left ventricular assist device, or waiting for a life-saving organ such as a liver? You may have been contemplating or waiting for an organ transplant, but you are unaware of all your options. Adult stem cell therapy should be an accepted ethical choice, it offers more…

    Currently, the only cure available for sufferers of sickle cell disease is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). In this process, stem cells are taken from the bone marrow or blood of someone without the disease (the donor). The donor is often the sufferer’s sibling, and this is because the most successful and safest transplants are those that use stem cells that are matched for special proteins known as HLA proteins. These antigens are inherited from parents meaning that siblings are…
