Wouldn't it make more sense for health insurance to pay for experimental procedures?


Because if the procedure worked, then if the person could have a normal life they could go back to work and keep paying their health insurance, plus the procedure could be used on other cases instead of wasting time and money with other procedures that just don't work.
----------

This is a good question. However the answer is that insurance is concerned with fraud. Medical insurance companies need to ensure that someone isn't just making up a new procedure to bill insurance companies. They must rely on proven results.
You assume that the procedure will work. Many times they do not. Whether or not they work has no bearing on the price.
The approval process for procedures is ongoing. Generally if the procedures are approved by the FDA, insurance will cover it. FDA approval can take years.
The cost of health care is skyrocketing in this country. It isn't because of the insurance industries, it is because we have so many new and wonderful life saving medical procedures available to us. Be thankful that they keep coming up with new procedures to save lives. . . eventually insurance companies pay for them.  (+ info)

What sites pay to take experimental medicine?


FACT: i am not going to
----------

This isn't very common because a lot of experimental medications are taken by volunteers during clinical trials...which means you would actually have to have the disease being treated by the medicine and meet a whole bunch of other qualifications before you could participate.

There are some agencies that will buy your blood plasma, though.  (+ info)

Is open adoption still in the experimental stage?


How well was open adoption researched before adoption agencies and attorneys began to offer this option?

Was there much thought about the effect on the either the child, the natural mother, or the adoptive family?

Do people enter into open adoption agreements thinking it will be easier on all parties involved?

Are possible complexities explored before the open adoption is agreed to?

I'm asking this because there are a lot of questions about both mothers and adoptive families who have difficulty keeping in touch and honoring the open adoption agreement. What are your opinions?
Thanks to everyone for telling your stories, opinions, and research. All of the answers are informative and important - I can't choose a best answer, so I will put the question to a vote.

Thank you!

I don't know the answer to your questions, but I wish I did.

Right now, it seems as if "open adoption" is something that is used to lure pregnant women into relinquishing their children. They are often scared, alone, and broke and think that by surrendering their children they can give them "what's best." Desperate PAPs promise these women the moon in order to get their hands on those sweet, fresh babies and then disappear into the night with nary a picture, letter, or phone number.

Until it's legally enforceable (and it SHOULD be), "open adoption" is a sick joke. I know that some people on here have open adoptions and they get high praise from me! I'm not saying that open adoptions never happen. I'm just saying that, for the most part, the term is a ploy to coerce mothers into giving up their children. It's sad and sick and should be a crime to enter into an agreement like that and then renege.  (+ info)

Are you more experimental with your eyeshadow colors?


Or do you like to stay neutral :| ? (not saying you can't be experimental with techniques, but I mean with colors...)

What colors/shades do you see yourself going back to most of the time
----------

I play it safe, in the sense that, I know what works for me and I don’t stray too far away from it. The colors I go for are a little of both. I prefer golds, pinks, browns and dark green and blue on occasion.  (+ info)

When can a tumor be non-cellular or non-neoplastic? And how can some neoplasms be cell free?


So basically, I've got a bio midterm tomorrow, and so in the process of studying, I realized I completely don't get that! Even my bio friends are like, what....? So if ANYONE can help us out here, that would be fantastic! Thanks!
----------

The word tumor is defined (in Answers.com) as "An abnormal growth of tissue resulting from uncontrolled, progressive multiplication of cells and serving no physiological function; a neoplasm." So your teacher is playing with semantics here.

The only way a "mass" could be non-cellular would be if it were cystic - - a contained area of fluid. We see this with some ovarian tumors which may be benign or malignant. The benign ones are ovarian serous cystadenomas or mucinous cystadenomas which can be quite large tumor masses. These do contain cells however in the membranous sacs surrounding the fluid

What kind of experimental research is going on for the cure of diabetes type 1 (juvenile onset)?

All across the US and in Canada the National Institute of Health is working on transplanting Islet Cells, the cells that make insulin in the human body.
I was involved in one of the clinical trials in Philadelphia. They were having great success in Philly. The doctors have already cured 3 people of type 1 diabetes. There are still many problems with islet transplantion that the doctors across the country are trying to solve by doing these clinical trials. The goal is to make type 1 diabetes a thing of the past.
By the way, anyone interested in getting involved, like I was, google 'islet transplant clinical trials'. They are still looking for people to cure. I unfortunately couldn't go through with the transplant because of antigens from being pregnant.  (+ info)
