The US Drug Watchdog says, "The reason there is ongoing national litigation involving the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is premature failure issues, and we think the easiest way for a recipient to discover is this type of metal on metal hip implant has failed is to get a very simple blood test to see if they have elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium in their blood stream, and recipients are welcome to call us at 866-714-6466 for the code number for the blood test, and specific...

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant device to contact us, so we can provide them with information about a specific blood test that will indicate elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in their blood, and we think this is a very big deal, because elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium is the best indicator for a all metal hip implant failure." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, and a specific blood test...

Researchers Develop Efficient And Inexpensive Catalyst Material For Fuel Cells
2013-06-17 09:52:58

Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres Platinum-nickel nano-octahedra save 90 percent platinum Efficient, robust and economic catalyst materials hold the key to achieving a breakthrough in fuel cell technology. Scientists from Jülich and Berlin have developed a material for converting hydrogen and oxygen to water using a tenth of the typical amount of platinum that was previously required. With the aid of state-of-the-art electron microscopy, the researchers...

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are urging recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to call us for specific information about a blood test that measures cobalt, and chromium levels in a recipients blood, because we are now convinced elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium are the best way to see a all metal hip implant has failed." For more information about a specific blood test designed to measure cobalt, or chromium levels related to a all metal hip implant like the DePuy...

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to hear from every recipient of a metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant in the hopes of telling the recipient about a blood test that has been specifically designed to measure cobalt, and chromium levels in a recipients blood, because we firmly believe elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium are the best way for a recipient to tell if their all metal hip implant has failed." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, and issues related...

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are urging all US citizens who are metal on metal hip implant recipients to get a blood test for cobalt, or chromium levels, and because we fear some orthopedic surgeons may not be completely honest with their patients about blood test results, so we are offering to get every all metal hip implant recipient's blood work examined by a ethical law firm's medical staff for signs of elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium, at no cost to the hip implant recipient....

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are now urging all recipients of a DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to get a blood test for elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium, because we believe elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium are the best way to see if there has been a all metal hip implant failure, and we now are offering a review of the blood test to see if the colbalt, or chromium levels are elevated." For more information please call the US Drug Watchdog at...

Aluminum (or aluminium) is a soft, lightweight, silvery metal. It is an element in the boron group on the periodic table of elements, with the symbol Al and atomic number 13. On the earth's crust, aluminum is the most abundant metal, and the third most abundant of all elements on the earth's crust, after oxygen and silicon. It accounts for 8% of the weight of the Earth's solid surface. Because aluminum is a highly reactive metal, it doesn't occur in nature in a pure form. Aluminum forms a...

Cadmium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Cd and atomic number 48. A relatively rare, soft, bluish-white, toxic transition metal, cadmium occurs with zinc ores and is used largely in batteries. Notable characteristics Cadmium is a soft, malleable, ductile, bluish-white bivalent metal which can be easily cut with a knife. It is similar in many respects to zinc but lends itself to more complex compounds. The most common oxidation state of cadmium is +2,...

Cobalt is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Co and atomic number 27. Notable characteristics Cobalt is a hard ferromagnetic silver-white element. The Curie temperature is of 1388 K with 1.6~1.7 Bohr magnetons per atom. It is frequently associated with nickel, and both are characteristic ingredients of meteoric iron. Mammals require small amounts of cobalt salts. Cobalt-60, an artificially produced radioactive isotope of cobalt, is an important radioactive...

Copper is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Cu and atomic number 29. Notable characteristics Copper is a reddish-coloured metal, with a high electrical and thermal conductivity (among pure metals at room temperature, only silver has a higher electrical conductivity). Copper may well be the oldest metal in use, as copper artifacts dating to 8700 BC have been found. Besides being part of various ores, copper can be found in the metallic form (i.e. native copper)...
