Is this part of occupy stuff? Without patents 1% of corporation owners can't make their bazzilions of dollars on those stem cell therapies.

Malaria vaccine trial raises hope

A malaria vaccine has shown promising results in a clinical trial in Africa.

Infants given the prototype vaccine had about half the risk of getting malaria compared with those who did not receive the jab, say researchers.

The vaccine, known as RTS,S, is one of two experimental malaria vaccines being tested around the world.

'We can live to 150 and stay healthy': Professor says first 'wonder drugs' could be ready this decade

Drugs that can slow the ageing process are likely to be available this decade, raising the prospect of people living to 150 or longer.
'Wonder' pills that help the body repair itself are in the early stages of development and will help us live well into our second century - while stem cell therapies will boost our quality of life.

The checks and balances of democratic governments were invented because human beings themselves realized how unfit they were to govern themselves. They needed a system.

^Living healthily to 150 in our current economy would be an absolute burden though, right? Imagine the stagnation of management that didn’t change for decades, heck... imagine having to work for over a hundred years? When this does start to happen, it’s going to be real interesting to see how culture revolutionises along with it.

I'd do 5 different professions, each job lasting 20-25 years, well why not 50 years and living to ripe old 300 :D 50x5 = 250+30 eduction+ 20-40 years retirement (live to 320)

Mobile phone brain cancer link rejected

Further research has been published suggesting there is no link between mobile phones and brain cancer.

The risk mobiles present has been much debated over the past 20 years as use of the phones has soared.

The latest study led by the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Denmark looked at more than 350,000 people with mobile phones over an 18-year period.

I see people constantly raising similar points. Apparently they forget that they won't be obligated to partake in these aging treatments. If you think that wouldn't be able to cope with the "burdens" of an extended life, just don't take part in the treatments.

In reality, it won’t work like that though will it. We will get to a point where anti-aging is just another medical procedure like the countless other medicines that most people partake in which allow them to live to current life expectancy levels. Even if people do elect to ‘die young’ when people around them are living for three times longer, you don’t think their lives are going to be affected by said individuals? If 9 out of 10 people do choose anti-aging therapy or other life extension technologies which mean they can work well into their hundreds, that’s going to affect turnover, for instance. There are a lot of consequences we DO have to consider as this comes about, simply choosing not to do it yourself won’t mean it doesn’t have an impact on your life.

^That's why I feel medical advances are going to revolutionize lifestlyes. Its like asking one the 100+ year old people and if they ever expected to live this long. Society will change if lifestlyes are changed. By the time we achieve 300 year+ lifetimes or immortality our society will be fundamentally changed. No one is the 1800s will think about of current way of life, consumerism,abilty to commute further and faster. I cannot not accuratly give a description of society in the future as your guess is probably good as mine. As we progress from a tangable economy to an intangable economy. The value of money will be different and hopefully be more responsible. It will be based on your ideas to society. With such a system we can see any kind of social security abolished since people would just need to think an idea for currency. This will be possible with robotics exponentally rduce the costs of every day objects where manual work will be obselete. With people needing to provide ideas for humanity compunded with neural impants it will truly be a singularity. I predict by 2080-2090 we will face 500 years of progress at a year 2000 rate.

How does cancer know it's cancer? At Jay Bradner's lab, they found a molecule that might hold the answer, JQ1 -- and instead of patenting JQ1, they published their findings and mailed samples to 40 other labs to work on. An inspiring look at the open-source future of medical research.

Gene therapy used in a bid to save a man's sight

Researchers in Oxford have treated a man with an advanced gene therapy technique to prevent him from losing his sight.

It is the first time that anyone has tried to correct a genetic defect in the light-sensing cells that line the back of the eye.

The president of the Academy of Medical Sciences said the widespread use of gene therapy of this treatment will be soon be possible.
