Pig liver are already being used to supply some time to liver-transplant patients; and for years, pig heart valves have been used in open-heart procedures to replace damaged human valves. Cloning research may contribute to treating diseases by allowing scientists to reprogram cells. The benefits of cloning could provide spare materials. Liver cells, eyes cells and bone cells may one day lead researchers to create...

    There are two different responses produced by the immune response in mammals. There is the "Cell mediated" response, and there is the "antibody response." First we shall deal with the Cell mediated response. This response is based upon the help of T-Cells. There are various types of T-cells which all have different jobs in the system. The cell mediated response is mainly utilised in defence against intracellular pathogens, such as vir i and fungi (and some bacteria). The T-cell precursors are pr...

The function of registering visual information, seeing, requires learning to see, in other words, in order to see the l...
