The Department of Defense awarded Osiris Therapuetics a contract that might be worth $224 M dollars to utilize a stem-cell therapy drug to treat radiation caused gastrointestinal injuries. See CNNMoney.com story here. The initial funding of $4 M is to develop the treatment, with another $200 M possible if the DoD decides to purchase units. This is an example of how diverse DoD spending is. It is not just for bullets, beans, gas and soldiers.
