Quotes

"Claims that white women are likely to be murdered by "unknown black males" amount to racial scare-mongering. The vast majority of women who are murdered in South Africa die at the hands of their husbands, boyfriends and lovers" added Ms Vetten on July 17th, 2013
A co-author of the study Dr Anna Murray , from the University of Exeter Medical School, commented, "We found that there are hundreds of genes involved in puberty timing, including 29 involved in the production and functioning of hormones, which has increased our knowledge of the biological processes that are involved, in both girls and boys"
"We’ve done the due diligence on the clinics we send our people to and we’ve never had one serious adverse event."
Prof James Neuberger, Associate Medical Director at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: "NHS Blood and Transplant is delighted to be supporting this multi-centre UK study into the immunosuppression treatment of patients who have received a kidney transplant. We would like to congratulate the investigators on the good outcomes they are reporting and we hope these results will be sustained in the long term. Improving outcomes for patients and their families, will help us to achieve our aim to make every donation count and enable even more patients receive the transplants they need."
