Happiness Is Something Worth Sharing Says Madrid-Based Scientology Foundation

MADRID, Spain -- Volunteers from the Scientology Churches and Missions of Spain and the nonprofit Fundacion Mejora reach out to their communities with The Way to Happiness to improve the quality of life.

"True joy and happiness are valuable," begins The Way to Happiness, a common-sense guide to better living, written by author, humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard in 1981.

Some 200 years earlier, Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence including the pursuit of happiness as an unalienable right.

And in 2011, the UN General Assembly echoed these concepts by adopting a resolution recognizing happiness as a "fundamental human goal."

But is there a way to achieve happiness - a tool by which anyone may guarantee or improve his or her chances of benefiting from this cherished state? That is the purpose of The Way to Happiness and the reason the booklet has inspired an international movement.

"Happiness lies in engaging in worthwhile activities," wrote Mr. Hubbard in the epilogue of The Way to Happiness, a book containing 21 basic principles or precepts that "point the way to a less dangerous and happier life." So on International Day of Happiness, the Mejora Foundation and volunteers from Scientology Churches and Missions of Spain joined Scientologists and like-minded people the world over who marked the day by sharing this booklet in their neighborhoods and the busy streets of their cities.

They encouraged those they shared the booklet with to give copies to friends whose happiness is important to them. And they invited them to take a free online course on The Way to Happiness Foundation website.

They also suggested they visit the Scientology Network, which features the award-winning The Way to Happiness book on film in 17 languages. The network also documents the work of humanitarians who use The Way to Happiness to uplift their communities and countries.

Episodes show how the booklet helped:

* Broker peace among warring gangs in South Central Los Angeles

* Reduce crime in inner-city Denver neighborhoods

* Transform a poverty-stricken village in Zambia into one on its way to sustainability

* Awaken hardened Colombian soldiers - once notorious for their extrajudicial killing of innocent civilians - to their responsibility for preserving the lives and welfare of their fellow citizens.

Foundacion Mejora (Foundation for the Improvement of Life, Culture and Society) was established in 2015 by the Church of Scientology of Spain. It is registered in that country's National Registry of Foundations. And in 2019 it achieved consultive status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, ECOSOC, one of the six principal organs of the United Nations.

The National Church of Scientology of Spain was dedicated in 2004 by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige. It is an Ideal Scientology Church, located in the heart of Madrid. It is configured to service Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and serve as a home for the entire community-a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift citizens of all denominations.

Pure Transplant Solutions, LLC and Vall d’Hebron University Hospital Announce Research Collaboration

AUSTIN, Texas -- Pure Transplant Solutions, LLC (PTS), a collaboration driven biotechnology company focused on the development of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-based diagnostics and therapeutics within the field of transplantation, is proud to announce that it has entered into a research collaboration with Vall d'Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus to develop new technologies for B-cell monitoring in transplant rejection.

The research is being led by Drs. Oriol Bestard and Rico Buchli and focuses on the detection of alloreactive memory B cells for pre-transplant risk stratification and post-transplant monitoring. Recognition of non-self HLA gives rise to the formation of HLA-specific memory B cells which precede circulating HLA antibodies. Importantly, such HLA-specific memory B cells can be present even in the absence of detectable serum antibodies, being an additional rejection risk factor in transplantation. Memory B cells are responsible for immunological recall responses by differentiating into antigen-specific antibody-producing cells upon re-encounter with a miss-matched antigen.

"This collaboration with PTS validates the tremendous need for appropriate and routinely applicable assays to detect and visualize the presence and HLA specificity of alloreactive memory B cells in solid organ transplant patients, which may ultimately help improve current alloimmune-risk stratification," Dr. Bestard stated.

"Today, the immunological risk of an individual transplant patient is mainly assessed by detection of HLA antibodies in the serum, which are produced by long lived bone marrow-residing plasma cells. At PTS, we envision that in addition to serum HLA antibody detection, HLA-specific memory B cell assays will serve as supplemental tools to determine risk factors and help improve individual patient management," said Dr. Buchli.

Steve Mayer MD, Chief Medical Officer at PTS stated, "We're very excited about the potential of this technology because it allows a very early diagnostic view of an individual's risk of rejection before any graft damage has occurred. Also, the technology is likely to have a significant impact on clinical utility with high predictive values."
