In a speech last week Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said that measures must be taken in the Russian Federation to boost the birth rate. Putin said that 1.5 trillion roubles will be invested in "demography projects," to improve the average life expectancy and to boost the birth rate by 25 to 30 percent over three years.

It would also allow doctors to refuse to commit abortions.               

Catholic couple blazes new trails in adult cardiac stem-cell research

Eduardo Marban, director of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles, and his wife Linda Marban, research manager for Cedars-Sinai's Board of Governors Heart Stem Cell Center, are blazing a new trail in adult cardiac stem-cell research. In a first-ever clinical trial, a small sample of a patient's own heart tissue is used to grow specialized heart stem cells. The stem cells are then injected back into the patient's heart in an effort to repair and re-grow healthy muscle in a heart that has been injured by heart attack.
