We have become proud that the importance of our very small embryonic-like stem cell research has been acknowledged by the prestigious American Society of Hematology. That is an important endorsement of the scientific developments that NeoStem is certainly sponsoring in neuro-scientific adult stem cell research. Abstracts selected for ASH poster presentation feature the latest research in the field and so are chosen through blind scoring and a peer-review procedure as the most outstanding among the thousands submitted for the annual interacting with.1 Antibiotics have been routinely administered during surgical abortions since the publication of a meta-analysis showing that their make use of resulted in a 42 percent decrease in postabortion infection prices.2 When medical abortion was first introduced, there was little concern about the chance of infection, since there is no usage of instruments in the cervix or uterus unless the procedure fails. However, it really is clear that serious infections do occur.3-6 Data lack to compare the rates of serious illness with antibiotic treatment and the rates without such treatment among females undergoing medical abortion.8 By later 2005, four women in the United States and something in Canada had died from a rare infection, with Clostridium sordellii, after medical abortion with mifepristone and misoprostol.9 On the other hand, no such deaths have been reported in Europe, where medical abortion had been available and far more women had used it longer.
