Is there a day when genetically modified crops in Western Australia appear?

Western Australian Minister of Agriculture Kim Chance said that many people are very cautious about biotechnology. Officials' remarks often have serious consequences. For this reason, everyone is very worried.
In January, Western Australian Minister of Agriculture Kim Chance appointed a ministerial advisory panel to discuss issues related to genetically modified crops.
The panel of advisers is headed by the Minister of Parliament, Tony McRae, who includes representatives from agriculture, agricultural biotechnology companies, academia, Western Australian public service agencies, anti-GM groups, and organic farming companies. The minister said that this will help the Western Australia government to open its current attitude towards GM crop technology and some related progress, and put forward opinions and suggestions on the effect of the government's pending GM crop suspension.
Dr. Ian Edwards, one of the members, is an agricultural biotechnology expert and leader of AusBiotech Australia. He believes that the role of the advisory board may not be large, just to seal the mouths of those critics of the government. Although Chance is currently consulting with industry experts, he may also continue to prevent the development of genetically modified crops and agricultural biotechnologies in Western Australia.
In January, the journal Nature Biotechnology asked Chance to fund a research project on the “Health Impact of Genetically Modified Food Crops” conducted by the Adelaide Institute, known for its anti-transgenic activism.
Edwards believes that the commitment of Chance and other state ministers to suspend biotech crops has severely damaged the credibility of the Federal Office of Genetic Technology Management (OGTR).
Chance’s recent behavior did not allow Edwards to dispel this idea. Edwards believes that the state must ensure health and safety issues. If the state government wants to focus on how federal agencies do their work, it should be subject to superiors in order to strengthen the federal government's regulations.
In the year before the Western Australian campaign, Chance rejected AusBiotech's request to hold a state meeting to discuss the suspension of biotech crops in Western Australia. Chance said that this is not appropriate, because the government only plays a supervisory role. On the same day, he sent a letter to Julie, a radical anti-transgenic activist, who elaborated on the government's attitude toward suspension. Newman immediately put the content on his own "farm" network.
Since September 2005, "Australian Biotechnology News" hopes to have a dialogue with Chance, but there has been no chance. Chance claims that he will not eat genetically modified food as soon as he is forced. In November, the Western Australian government issued an announcement that it will fund a neutral institution to conduct research on the health effects of GM foods on rodent models, leading to panic among government authorities and research institutions.
Recently, Chance issued a statement on the decision of the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to “suspend a genetically modified pea variety”. Transgenic peas contained a transgene that prevented the peas from attacking the protein, and allergic reactions to lungs in mice fed the peas moderated. After the problem was detected, CSIRO immediately suspended a 10-year research plan and publicly claimed that the decision affirmed the effectiveness of the self-regulatory system developed by the agricultural biotechnology R&D institution.
However, Chance said that the results of the transgenic peas show that it is necessary to carry out "comprehensive and individual-specific breeding research" on genetically modified foods, and announced that the government will carry out special studies on animal feeding of genetically modified foods. The Western Australian government is funding the study for its concern that "a gene may be transferred between plants and the expressed protein may be different from the original."
Committee of Experts
Chance did not reveal the amount of funds, nor did it publish the research unit, but it was about $75,000. The research unit may be the Adelaide Institute of Health and Environment (IHER). IHER was created by Judy Carman, an economist for genetically modified crops and food safety tests. Carman is currently a senior lecturer at the University of Adelaide and has served as a senior epidemiologist in the former South Australian Department of Health. He is involved in research projects in many fields, including laboratory science, animal and human research.
Carman told reporters that she had advised all state governments, including Queensland, to develop a plan to manage the safety testing of GM foods, but only the Western Australian government agreed.
IHER is guided by expert steering committees composed of “senior internationally renowned experts”, including medical professors and veterinarians who test genetically modified foods. The researchers will conduct rigorous and careful measurements on the experiments, conduct controlled experiments, and publish the results. In peer review literature. She said: “We are concerned about the health effects of GM crops and therefore need some workers who are studying human health and animal health. Most of the opponents are geneticists in crops related to the GM crop industry. We will pass peer review. Documents and grey literature (public offerings are not secret documents) disclose information."
Carman has worked in many fields of research and claims to be a “Renaissance” who has extensive experience in laboratory research. "If we find adverse reactions, we may carry out an epidemiological study, and of course everything may be good." Carman said that the institute will not purchase its own research equipment, but rather take the form of equipment rental equipment. The experiment will be completed by many researchers who have both laboratory and histological research experience.
Carman is the key person to provide a reliable summary report of the indoor food safety test for the Australian New Zealand Food Standards Agency (FSANZ). The safety test analyzes the development of biotech crop companies' products, like Monsanto and Bayer, rather than analyzing those trials. Raw data. Carman said FSANZ "is very much against" her questions about the test method. FSANZ usually only compares the components of genetically modified foods with traditional crops, and does not conduct animal and human experiments until it is determined that the safety of genetically modified foods can be "safely" eaten.
At present, research on animal husbandry has begun. Researchers usually use the purified synthetic proteins in transgenic bacteria to feed animals and do not feed directly on genetically modified crops. If the animals die within two weeks, they perform an autopsy study.
Therefore, the industry is very worried that the Western Australian government's decision will further crack down on the confidence of consumers and producers. Everyone believes that Australia's regulatory system for genetically modified crops and foods is already in the most urgent moment.

Sodium Hyaluronate(HA), Hyaluronic acid could be used in eye surgery, such as corneal transplantation, cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, and surgery to repair retinal detachment.


Eye drop grade Sodium Hyaluronate is an important component of intercellular substance, eye vitreous body, joint fluid and other connective tissue. It acts the important physiologic roles in holding body's moisture, maintaining extracellular space, adjusting osmotic pressure, lubricating and promoting cells to repair in the body. Sodium Hyaluronate can be used as viscoelastic agent inintraocular lens implantation operation, as the filler in the osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and otherjoint surgery, as a medium widely used in eye drops, it also can be used to prevent postoperative adhesion and facilitate the wound heal. The compounds formed by the reaction of Sodium Hyaluronate with other drugs play a drug release effect role, thus achieve the purpose of drug targeted and time controlled release.


With the development of medical technology, Sodium Hyaluronate has been more and more widely used in medical applications. In 1976, Sodium Hyaluronate was first commercialized and used as ophthalmic viscoelastic agents, which is a significant progress in the ophthalmic industry. In 1987, Sodium Hyaluronate for intra-articular injection came in to the market. In 1990s, the large-scale production of Sodium Hyaluronate by fermentation made the cost lower, thus products containing Sodium Hyaluronate such as eye-drops, dermal fillers and other Sodium Hyaluronate preparations started to be used extensively.
