Patient discussion about oxygenate

Q. hi my name is ray i am from england and i am on oxygen i am a retainer of carbon monxide do you guys know whoa any place working with stem cell or natural medical emial rsantolla@aol.co.uk

A. i had a whole course on stem cell use in tissue engineering and from what i know this is an area that still in research and very little clinical use. the ability to create lungs from Mesenchimal Stem Cells is a far away dream right now. but here are some links to labs that research that area:


A. honey has an antimicrobial activity due to it's acidity, osmotic power and hydrogen peroxide. about MRSA - there is a New Zealandic research about a type of honey that is effective against infections of MRSA. but it's only one research and another investigation is required.

On May 9, Earth Island's Bluewater Network and 90 other environmental groups sent a joint letter to Congress demanding a complete ban on the use of the gasoline additive methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and all other ether-based oxygenates. "A phase-out of MTBE and other ether-based oxygenates must be complete and total to be effective," the letter states.
The 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments required RFG, which is used in nine major US urban areas with ozone pollution problems, to contain two percent of oxygenates by weight.
The concentrations of alternative oxygenates found around leaking tanks in the new study are already surprisingly high, says environmental engineer Susan E.

Reduction in aromatics, including the mandated maximum benzene content of 1% should result in reduced fuel permeation through elastomers while increase in oxygenates may increase permeation through elastomers and, in the case of ethanol, definitely will do so.
DEP said McGinty expressed that a phase-in period would also "ensure that a new oxygenate could be produced and provided in volumes that refiners need to make the transition without disrupting fuel supplies." Additionally, DEP said McGinty noted that "time is needed to retrofit the supply and delivery chain."
"In California, ethanol is being blended into gasoline in areas that do not fall under the Clean Air Act oxygenate standard.
According to EPA, New Hampshire's fuel program preserves "many" of the air quality benefits of the federal program while eliminating the oxygenate requirement that has led many gasoline providers to add methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) to gasoline.
Gasoline must contain MTBE at 15 percent by volume to qualify as an oxygenate. The resulting oxygen increase improves gasoline's combustion efficiency especially at cold temperatures, thereby cutting carbon monoxide emissions by 10 to 20 percent.
Fluosol is being used experimentally in animals to oxygenate the heart during this induced "ischemia,' or lack of oxygen.
The Form EIA-819, "'Monthly Oxygenate Report" provides production data for fuel ethanol and methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE).
