Knight Introduces California Aerospace Innovation Hub Act | Parabolic Arc

Knight Introduces California Aerospace Innovation Hub Act | Parabolic Arc | Innovations in Advanced Aerospace | Scoop.it

Rep. Steve Knight (R-Palmdale) has introduced the California Aerospace Innovation Hub Act, which would allow for the creation of special zones where aerospace companies would enjoy tax and regulatory privileges.

“It is the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would create geographically based aerospace hubs around existing aerospace manufacturing clusters, and that within the aerospace hubs aerospace manufacturers and related businesses would benefit from special tax preferences, streamlined regulations, and work schedule flexibility,” the measure reads.

Gleevec May Help Preserve Fertility After Chemotherapy

Gleevec May Help Preserve Fertility After Chemotherapy | Innovations in Advanced Aerospace | Scoop.it
Women who undergo chemotherapy often lose their fertility because the drugs used damage or kill their oocytes—immature egg cells stored in the ovaries. However, a recent study suggests that adding the cancer drug imatinib mesylate (Gleevec) to chemotherapy treatment may protect oocytes. Researchers treated mouse ovaries with the chemotherapy drug cisplatin (Platinol) either by itself or in combination with Gleevec, then implanted them into host mice. The oocytes from Gleevec-treated ovaries still suffered DNA damage from the Platinol exposure, but unlike oocytes treated with just Platinol, they did not die. Previous research suggests that the surviving oocytes could repair the damage over time after chemotherapy treatment ends. These findings offer the hope that Gleevec may help preserve fertility in chemotherapy patients.
Ben Munkres's insight:
Another excellent use for this life saving drug!
