Organ Care System: Hope in cases of severe infections

Dear Sir or Madam,

How can infections be treated that are actually untreatable? In times of spreading multiresistance, this question concerns medicine day by day. The Organ Care System, with which a severe case of pneumonia has been successfully treated, gives hope. How such a treatment works and in which cases the Organ Care System should also be used, you can read in our current interview.

Have a restful week,

Anti-alcoholism drug shows promise

Scientists at The University of Texas at Austin have successfully tested in animals a drug that, they say, may one day help block the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that incessantly coax people with alcoholism to drink.
