  • RE: A flurry of information of the mit-DNA and n-DNAare not yet known to the majority of Authors
    • Sergio Stagnaro, Director, Quantum Biophysical Semeiotic Research Laboratory

    From the clinical point of view, the Clinical Microangiology (1-3), born from the Quantum Biophysical Semeiotic, allows physicians to bedside analyzing the structure and function of the two DNAs, i.e., mit-DNA and n-DNA, in all biological systems. Al around the world, media referr today that DNA and RNA are naturally composed of four nucleotide bases that form hydrogen bonds in order to pair. Hoshika et al. added an additional four synthetic nucleotides to produce an eight-letter genetic code and generate so-called hachimoji DNA.
    My question: To which of the two DNA have added four more letters Hoshika et al. ? As a matter of facts, the Constitution-Dependent, Inherited Real Risks, the degenerative disorders are based on, e.g., CVD / CAD, T2DM, Brain degenerative disorders, Cancer, a.s.o., can occur exclusively in individuals involved by the mitochondrial cytopathy, I have termed Congenital Acidosic Enzyme-Metabolic Histangiopathy (4).
    Unfortunately, not only Hoshika et al., but also the majority of Authors, including the outstanding ones, still ignore how to diagnose the above-referred Inherited Real Risks, starting from birth, and eliminate them with inexpensive Reconstructing Quantum Mitochondrial Therapy (5).
