Accelerated approval was granted for these indications, under a priority review (MZL), based on the results of the Phase 2 UNITY-NHL Trial (NCT02793583); in MZL, an ORR of 49% with 16% complete responses and in FL an ORR of 43% with 3% complete responses were achieved, respectively. Umbralisib was earlier granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation (BTD) for the treatment of MZL and orphan drug designation (ODD) for the treatment of MZL and FL. Umbralisib is a novel, next generation, oral, once daily, inhibitor of phosphoinositide 3 kinase (PI3K) delta and casein kinase 1 (CK1) epsilon and was discovered by Rhizen Pharma and subsequently licensed to TG Therapeutics (NASDAQ:TGTX) at an IND stage (TGR 1202) in 2012. In 2014, both parties entered into a licensing agreement as a part of which TGTX obtained worldwide rights and Rhizen has retained commercialization rights for India while also being the manufacturing and supply partner for Umbralisib. Swaroop Vakkalanka, President & CEO of Rhizen Pharmaceuticals said: “Umbralisib’s approval offers MZL & FL patients a new treatment option and is a huge validation of Rhizen’s drug discovery & development capabilities. This is a momentous occasion in Rhizen’s journey as a successful biotech that speaks of the true ability of our team to discover & develop safe and effective therapies that can last the rigors of drug development. Further, we are keen to bring Umbralisib to Indian patients and we plan to initiate activities towards registration and approval there soon.” Pranav Amin, Chairman, Rhizen Pharmaceuticals & Managing Director of Alembic Pharmaceuticals Ltd said: “We are extremely proud of this historic milestone for Rhizen, and of the fact that Umbralisib is the first NCE discovered by Indian scientists to secure a US FDA approval. We are committed to working together with TG Therapeutics and Rhizen Pharma to ensure uninterrupted supply of UKONIQ™. Umbralisib is the first discovery asset to come out of Rhizen’s R&D efforts and this approval heralds the promise of the rest of Rhizen’s deep pipeline and continuing efforts.” About Umbralisib: Umbralisib is the first and only oral inhibitor of phosphoinositide 3 kinase (PI3K) delta and casein kinase 1 (CK1) epsilon. PI3K-delta is known to play an important role in supporting cell proliferation and survival, cell differentiation, intercellular trafficking and immunity and is expressed in both normal and malignant B-cells. CK1-epsilon is a regulator of oncoprotein translation and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of cancer cells, including lymphoid malignancies. Umbralisib is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) who have received at least one prior anti-CD20-based regimen and for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) who have received at least three prior lines of systemic therapy. These indications are approved under accelerated approval based on overall response rate. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial.

The bench of Justices R. Banumathi, Indu Malhotra and Aniruddha Bose allowed the special leave petition, preferred against the order of the Bombay High Court, whereby the Petitioner was denied relief. Termination of pregnancy on the ground of “physical or mental abnormalities” of the unborn child is permitted under Section 3(2)(ii) of the Medical Termination Of Pregnancy Act, 1971. The provision states that a pregnancy may be terminated by a registered medical practitioner where the length of the pregnancy exceeds twelve weeks but does not exceed twenty weeks, if not less than two registered medical practitioners are of opinion, formed in good faith, that there is a substantial risk that if the child were born, it would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped. In the present case, the woman was 25 weeks pregnant, i.e. beyond the threshold provided under the Act. She had therefore the approached the Court seeking permission to terminate the pregnancy. Background & Order The Bombay High Court had had declined to grant permission for foetal reduction while stating that (i) it may not be safe for the mother, and (ii) foetal reduction of one foetus, may affect the other normal foetus. In appeal, the Supreme Court re-constituted the Medical Board, with the addition of a Member qualified in foetal medicine, to re-consider and render its medical opinion the grounds stated by the High Court. As per this Board, the foetus suffered from incurable “chromosomal abnormality” and the same is classified in the list of “substantial and serious abnormalities” by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in its “Guidance Note for Medical Boards for Terminal of Pregnancy beyond 20 weeks Gestation”. The Board further determined that termination of abnormal foetus carries negligible risks to the mother “and is proven extremely safe and large seriies with no maternal deaths”. The Board further apprised the court that there is no direct risk of the procedure to the normal twin. In view of conclusion of the Medical Board, the Supreme Court set aside the impugned order of the High Court and permitted the Petitioner to undergo foetal reduction as per the procedure stated by the Medical Board, after submitting her and her husband’s individual consent for the same. Bill To Increase Upper Age Limit For Termination Of Pregnancy It is worthwhile to note that the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Amendment) Bill, 2020, which was passed by the Lok Sabha on March 17, 2020, permits aborting pregnancies at gestational age beyond the present permissible limit of 20 weeks, on the grounds of foetal abnormalities or pregnancies due to sexual violence faced by women. The Bill proposes to amend Section 3 of the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971, to extend the upper limit for medical termination of pregnancy to 24 weeks, from the present stipulation of 20 weeks. Recent Cases In July 2016, Supreme Court had allowed a 26-year-old alleged rape victim to abort a 24-week old foetus with severe abnormalities (despite a ban on medical termination of pregnancy beyond 20 weeks) as a medical board ordered by it declared that there was a danger to the mother’s life. The lead has thereafter been followed by several High Courts.

Court TV in the Cayman Islands

first_img Share Tweet 17 Views   no discussions Photo credit: moblog.netGEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (GIS) — Inmates detained in prison in the Cayman Islands while on remand will soon address the courts, and consult with their lawyers, from the confines of the penal system, following the introduction of CCTV links.This development is another component of the e-government drive which continues to evolve behind the scenes in the Cayman islands.Set to go live within weeks, the prison system’s new video link will allow “virtual” remand hearings, thereby removing the need to shuttle prisoners from the secure compounds, and back.“We transport some 100 Category-A and -B prisoners and persons on remand weekly, including those charged with capital crimes,” said Prison Director Dwight Scott. Up until now, at least three prison staff and two vehicles have been dedicated to processing and transporting these prisoners.Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) resources will also be favourably impacted by this development, as officers will be relieved of transport and security duties.The CCTV system uses two separate sound-proof rooms at the prison. One, with a ‘dock’, will enable the judiciary to confirm that the inmate is secured in custody, and allow hearings and questioning from the courtroom. A separate room, also equipped with CCTV, will allow confidential conversations between persons on remand and their attorneys.During a live test this week, the Portfolio of Internal and External Affairs’ Deputy Chief Officer Eric Bush congratulated the agencies involved in developing the system. “Deploying this technology removes the need to transport dangerous persons outside the prison gates, thereby removing many risk factors. Many issues were taken into consideration, including the human rights of those detained,” he said.He added, “This is another example of how the portfolio and its departments are deploying technology to improve efficiency, productivity and public safety and security all at the same time.”The system uses fibre-optic lines and secure microwave links to transmit the conversations, which are encrypted at both ends to prevent interference.Congratulating all involved in bringing the project to fruition, George Town representative Ellio Solomon, who chairs the E-Government Committee said, “In addition to enhancing security, speed and access, the project will result in significant savings.” He said the initial cost of some $85,000 will be recouped within eight months, “following which it will result in a significant return on investment.”This use of technology is also in keeping with the objective of reducing demands on the judicial system and in keeping with public expectations regarding security.

South Africa to discuss ‘devastating’ FIFA order

first_imgSouth Africa host Burkina Faso in Johannesburg on October 7 and must also play Senegal away during November.Jordaan urged South Africans not to criticise FIFA general secretary Fatma Samoura, a Senegalese.“We hold her in high regard as the first African to hold this senior post in our world football governing body,” he said.Share on: WhatsApp South Africa defeated Senegal 2-1 at the group stage last November, but both their goals stemmed from controversial decisions by since-banned Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey.The penalty that enabled South Africa to take the lead was awarded for a non-existent handball with TV replays showing the ball striking the thigh of a defender.Later, Lamptey was ordering Senegalese players to retreat for a free-kick when it was taken and the home team increased their lead.FIFA gave Lamptey a life ban for match manipulation and his appeal was rejected this week by Switzerland-baaed international sport judicial body CAS. No details of who might have influenced the Ghanaian to fix the result have been released by FIFA.Lamptey has a history of controversial decisions in national team and international club fixtures, including allowing a handball goal and playing suspiciously long periods of stoppage time.The replay decision came this week after South Africa suffered home and away defeats by lowly Cape Verde within five days to diminish hopes of reaching the 2018 World Cup in Russia.Burkina Faso and Cape Verde have six points with two matches to play and Senegal five and South Africa one with three games left. Only group winners qualify.center_img Johannesburg, South Africa | AFP | South Africa football bosses will meet Monday to discuss a “devastating” FIFA order that a 2018 World Cup qualifier against Senegal must be replayed after the referee manipulated the result.National association president Danny Jordaan said Saturday in a statement that issues for debate could include appealing the decision, writing to FIFA or taking legal action.He called the order to replay the match during the November 6-14 international window “devastating news that had stressed South Africans”.last_img read more

After More Than 1,090 Days, Shelter’s Longtime Resident Finds a Home

first_imgA black-and-white terrier mix with a shiny coat, Jules knows commands like “sit” and “paw.” She loves to go for walks or runs on her leash and wears a bright pink collar. She loves belly rubs and has a contagious smile. She sometimes barks out of excitement but is very friendly. The pup had been involved in theShare-A-Pet program at the facility,which allows donors to take her onwalks, feed her treats and give herattention. These social interactionsopened her up and readied her foradoption, the shelter states. According to the shelter there is a $165 fee to adopt large, mixed-breed dogs which includes spaying/ neutering, updated vaccinations and microchips. A $350 fee is imposed when adopting puppies and might require adopters to sign up for puppy training classes. The fee for adopting felines is $75 for kittens and $50 for adult cats, which also includes spaying/neutering, updated vaccinations and microchips. “There’s too many animals whodon’t have homes or families tolive with,” said Delfino Salazar,a shelter employee since 2010.“These dogs need family, love.” TINTON FALLS – Things werelooking a bit dismal for a 6-year-oldterrier mix named Shanice. Nov. 2marked her third year in a TintonFalls-based animal shelter andshe was about to spend her fourthChristmas inside those walls. Thatis, until last week. Shanice was the longest resident of the Associated Humane Societies of New Jersey’s Tinton Falls facility. Representatives started campaigning for her adoption as her 1,090th day in the shelter approached, came and went. But a media blitz brought Shanice to the attention of employees of the Jackson-based nonprofit Pitties and Pals Rescue, who decided to change her luck, promoting her cause until finding her “forever family.” A 6-year old terrier mix, has been adopted after spending over three years in the Associated Humane Societies shelter in Tinton Falls. Representatives campaigned for her adoption before the holiday season.Photo by Allison Perrine Papa thought Jules probably spent so long in the Tinton Falls shelter because she was not great with other dogs. “But that can always change. This is a stressful environment, so sometimes it’s hard to tell exactly what they’re going to be like in a home. But we obviously have to be cautious.” The adoption process at The Associated Humane Societies of New Jersey’s Tinton Falls facility requires that interested parties have a copy of a valid driver’s license or state-issued identification available. Homeowners must prove ownership of their home with a tax bill, deed, or the like. Home renters must provide a lease specifically stating that animals are allowed. If it does not say it, a notarized letter must be provided from the landlord. Any adopters who already have dogs must bring them in for a meet-and-greet with the dog looking to be adopted. To learn more, contact the shelter, located at 2960 Shafto Road. Many other dogs are up for adoption as well as cats, chickens, bunnies, pigs and roosters. “We can get anything on a given day,” said Papa. For more information about Associated Humane Societies, visit ahscares.org. According to Humane Societies representative Lindsay Papa, it’s a bit unusual for animals to stay at the Tinton Falls facility for verylong. The average large dog or pitbull is adopted within six monthsto a year, and the average smalldog, puppy or purebred is adoptedwithin two weeks to two months.Dogs have been held in the shelterfor at most two years before this.“It is hard to say. It really is caseby case,” said Papa. “But our smalldogs, puppies and pure breeds gomuch, much faster.” Shanice, now known as Jules and living the home-sweet-home life in Princeton, was originally a stray from Sayreville that came to the shelter Nov. 2, 2016. Multiple employees described her as a nice, easy and happy dog. She loves to play with toys and has a particular fondness for tennis balls, often jumping into toy boxes to find them for herself. Salazar said campaigns foradoption will be made for otheranimals going forward, but not forall. Special attention will be madeto animals that have been abused,have special needs or have been atthe shelter for a long time.last_img read more

Waging war on elusive killer

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Nearly 35 years after President Nixon declared war on cancer, the disease remains a most elusive and destructive foe. Researchers know much more today than they did three decades ago about the 200 or more unique diseases known collectively as cancer. And they are beginning to pin down each of the steps in the complex pathway that causes the body’s own cells to mutiny and begin multiplying in a way that strays drastically and disastrously from the norm. But the war is far from over. During his State of the Union address in 1971, Nixon said, “conquering this dread disease” merited “the same kind of concentrated effort that split the atom and took man to the moon.” He asked for $100 million to launch a campaign to find the “cure for cancer,” and since then billions of federal dollars have been spent with that same goal in mind. The National Institutes of Health allocated $5.5 billion to the battle in 2004 and estimates cancer budgets of $5.6 billion for both 2005 and 2006. And that doesn’t take into account the billions amassed each year by individual states, cancer centers, pharmaceutical companies and all the charitable organizations, many with a rainbow of plastic bracelets. But despite the billions, cancer’s casualties are everywhere. Based on projections from the California Cancer Registry, the American Cancer Society expects nearly 137,000 Californians will be diagnosed with cancer next year and more than 54,000 will die. Nearly one of every two babies born in California this year is expected to develop cancer during his or her lifetime. Area mirrors national trends Cancer hits people of all ethnicities across social classes. But the blow from various cancers is often not evenly distributed. For example, the overall rate of cancer deaths for African-American men is nearly one-and-a-half times higher than the rate for white males. In the San Gabriel Valley, an area known for its diverse population, researchers see national trends in cancer play out in a condensed area. Cary Presant, an oncologist with the Wilshire Oncology group and past president of the California division of the American Cancer Society, said, “We love the diverse populations we have in the San Gabriel Valley,” but in terms of cancer, the region “has some of its own unique problems because of the tremendous diversity in the people we have here.” So while the cancers that oncologists like Presant see most frequently here are the same as those challenging other communities across the nation – cancers of the prostate, breast, lung and colon and rectum – certain areas of the Valley with strong Asian populations are see more liver cancer and many Latino communities have higher rates of stomach and gallbladder cancers. Thomas Mack, past director of the registry that collects data on every cancer diagnosis in Los Angeles County, has studied the distribution of cancer diagnoses in the county between 1972 and 1998. In his 2004 book, “Cancers in the Urban Environment,” he identifies census tracts among the county’s 1,619 where the rates of cancer diagnoses are at least 50-percent higher than the county’s average, ruling out random chance. “The cancers which tend to show high … in the San Gabriel Valley are those we would expect to on the basis of what we know about their causation,” Mack, of USC’s Keck School of Medicine, said. The cancer is explained by the demography rather than the geography, he said. On the maps corresponding to liver cancer in his book, census tracts in heavily Asian communities of the San Gabriel Valley such as Monterey Park indicate high incidence. Several factors, including genetic predisposition, are thought to contribute to liver cancer, but early infection with hepatitis B is considered the most important and is thought to be responsible for about 80 percent of cases around the world. Hepatitis C, the consumption of moldy foods and heavy drinking of alcohol are other causes. The maps displaying census tracts with high incidence of stomach cancer highlight heavily Latino communities in the West San Gabriel Valley. Recently, researchers have determined that a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori, which is acquired early in life, is responsible for much stomach cancer. And countywide gallbladder cancer, as expected from previous experience, is most prevalent among women of lower social classes who live in Latin-American neighborhoods. Gallstones caused by genetic factors as well as diet and inflammation are closely associated with cancer of the gallbladder. Survival rate now 64 percent Researchers have made limited progress in the battle. According to the National Cancer Institute, 30 years ago half the people diagnosed with cancer lived more than five years. Today, that survival rate has increased to about 64 percent. Advances in education about prevention – notably the dangers of cigarette smoking – have contributed to that increase as have improvements in screening technologies and success in getting people to annual exams. And there have been some victories for cancer drugs, such as Herceptin for breast cancer and Gleevec for leukemia. Thanks to such advances, more than 10 million Americans alive today can personally attest to the ravages of cancer, having lived with it themselves. Angela Kwang of Monterey Park is one of those millions. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996, she was a 47-year-old mother of three and had never thought of her own mortality. “When you work hard and the kids are young, you think OK, one day I will enjoy (life) for myself,” Kwang, originally from Taiwan, said. But when her doctor diagnosed cancer, she said, “My goodness, I don’t know when I’m going to die. Maybe I don’t have time to enjoy for myself.” Kwang underwent all of the big three in cancer treatment – surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. And while cancer survivors can never truly say they’ve been cured, Kwang hasn’t had a recurrence. Today, she volunteers with the American Cancer Society’s Pasadena branch by offering to talk with cancer patients who speak Chinese. She listens to their concerns and lets them know that they’re not alone, that many others are going through the same ordeal and people like herself are alive to tell their stories. Still, Kwang, like many cancer survivors, lives in fear that her cancer will return. She said much of that anxiety traces to a simple fact. “Nobody knows how do you get the cancer,” she said. “I really want to know… even doctors can’t say that. We still have a long time to go to find out why.” Searching for the cure Researchers around the world are working to find the answers and to meet the challenge goal that Andrew von Eschenbach, director of the National Cancer Institute, set forth in early 2003 – to eliminate the suffering and death due to cancer by 2015. And at world-class research centers such as City of Hope, Caltech and Huntington Medical Research Institutes, scientists are contributing new ideas, discoveries, trials and years of work. One of those experts, Andrew Raubitschek, chairman of City of Hope’s division of cancer immunotherapeutics and tumor immunology, explained what keeps cancer researchers toiling for better treatments. “It’s not that we study these things as an interesting adventure as a basic researcher,” he said. “We do it totally with the idea of, `Can we cure the patient?”‘ [email protected] (626)578-6300, Ext. 4451last_img
