FDA wants to regulate direct-to-consumer DNA tests - SmartPlanet

Newsweek interviewed Alberto Gutierrez, FDA director of its Office of In Vitro Diagnostics, about why the tests are considered medical devices years after they have been sold. Gutierrez said: Well, the claims have changed constantly. The original claims from three years ago were very, very vague. For example, the claims they’re making now for the different drugs and how they’re metabolized, those weren’t being made previously. Even some of the health claims in terms of risk of chronic disease, those just started coming online about a year ago. In a report [more...]

Azazel? Seriously? What...the...hell?

The Baron, however, is understandably dubious about his wife getting pregnant so suddenly after Azazel's arrival and sudden departure. He proposes a paternity test, and Raven answers by stabbing him to death and ditching the body. Now completely alone, Raven gives birth, to a blue baby boy. Which would normally be a bad sign, but Kurt was obviously a mutant from birth. That's disturbing the delivery team enough, before Raven reverts to her usual blue form, and gets denounced as a demoness. Forced to flee her formerly "perfect" life, Raven curses Azazel for not loving her, for leaving her with [more...]

When you go to a fertility doctor or clinic, they’ll more than likely begin by doing some basic diagnostic blood work and testing. One of the first tests typically performed is a Hysterosalpingogram or HSG. While you have to wait for results from other tests, the HSG is one the few fertility testing procedures that provides you with instant results.

The HSG is usually done at a local hospital’s surgical/surgery [more...]

Weekend Chuckles , Paternity Test Optional Saturday, 30. May 2009, 04:32:33 A very wise friend of mine never takes anything for granted. He always wants to know the truth and nothing but the truth...

I do not know whether she wishes to substantiate this by means of a DNA test, however she has sent a photograph of the [more...]

someone call maury polvich … PLEASE!!!! Shouldn’t he thought of this a long time ago? Octomom NADYA SULEMAN was dating BEAUDOIN in the late 1990s when she convinced him to give her several sperm samples, and he wants to know if they were used to create the brood she’s currently bringing up.
