The very structure of scientific research does not mitigate against developing products to help the environment, the poor, and the hungry

, : The very structure of scientific research does not mitigate against developing products to help the environment, the poor, and the hungry. Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 4(2): 159-165

This paper follows one by M. Crouch which puts the opposing view. The use of tissue culture to propagate disease-free plants in Vietnam and Zimbabwe is highlighted as an example of a low-tech product of biotechnology.

Background: Although calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 inhibit retinoblastoma growth in the athymic (nude) mouse xenograft (Y-79 cell line) model of retinoblastoma, they can cause severe toxicity. Objective: To examine the...

PB183, a non-selective sigma receptor ligand displaying high sigma-1 and sigma-2 receptor affinity, was evaluated in prostate tumour cell lines for its suitability as PET radiotracer. The pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties suggested P...
