Israeli researchers are some of the best
in the world.”

Israel: Bio-Tech & Medicine
Israeli researchers have created a “biological
pacemaker” which corrects faulty heart rhythms.
Israeli scientists are developing a nose drop that will
provide a five-year flu vaccine.
A revolutionary new drug developed by Hebrew
University prevents re-clogging of coronary
arteries after undergoing "balloon therapy."
Israeli scientists have created a DNA nano-computer
that not only detects cancer, but also releases
drugs that specifically target and treat cancerous
cells.
Israeli stem-cell technology is being used in the U.S.
to regenerate heart tissue.
PillCam™ ESO 2 is a new capsule endoscope
from Israel's Given Imaging Ltd.
Thanks to Israel’s Given Imaging,
doctors have the Pillcam!
Israel's Given Imaging developed the first
ingestible video camera, so small it fits
inside a pill. Used to view the small intestine
from the inside, cancer and
digestive disorders.
Copaxone
manufacturing
line
Two of the most
revolutionary drugs
on the market -
Copaxone, which
treats Multiple
Sclerosis, and
Rasagaline, which
treats Parkinson’s -
were brought to you
by Israel’s Teva
Pharmaceuticals.
Medicine...
Israeli  scientists developed the
first fully computerized, no-radiation,
diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer.
An Israeli company developed a computerized
system for ensuring proper administration
of medications, thus removing human error
from medical treatment. Every year in U. S.
hospitals 7,000 patients die from 
treatment mistakes.
Researchers in Israel
developed a new device that
directly helps the heart
pump blood, an innovation
with the potential to save
lives among those with
heart failure. The new device
synchronized with the
camera helps doctors
diagnose heart's mechanical
operations through a
sophisticated system of
sensors.
Israel has the highest percentage in the
world of home computers per capita.
Israel has the world's second highest per
capita of new books.

All the above while engaged in regular wars

seeks its destruction, and an economy
continuously
under strain by having to spend
more per capita on its own
protection than any other county on earth.
