Reformulated GSK mouthwash endorsed as umbilical cord antiseptic
29 Apr 2016 at 2:01am
By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - An antiseptic gel to stop umbilical cord infections in newborn babies was recommended as safe and effective by European regulators on Friday in a boost for GlaxoSmithKline scientists who developed it from a mouthwash. GSK researchers developed the new product by reformulating the chlorhexidine solution found in its popular Corsodyl mouthwash into a gel that can be applied to newly cut umbilical cords. The stump of the umbilical cord can act as an entry point for bacteria, causing life-threatening infections, especially in poorer countries with limited healthcare resources.


Sanofi launches $9.3 billion fight for U.S. cancer firm Medivation
29 Apr 2016 at 1:52am

By Ben Hirschler and Leigh Thomas LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - French drugmaker Sanofi went public with a $9.3 billion offer to buy Medivation on Thursday, setting up what could be a lengthy takeover battle after the U.S. cancer firm rebuffed its approaches. The decision to target Medivation marks a return to the biotech takeover trail for Sanofi, which is looking to new cancer treatments to bolster its portfolio and help offset declining sales of mainstay diabetes drug Lantus. Sanofi's non-binding proposal is to buy Medivation for $52.50 per share in cash, representing a roughly 36 percent premium over Medivation's stock price one month prior to Thursday's offer.



Sanofi confident it can win Medivation shareholder support
29 Apr 2016 at 1:11am

By Matthias Blamont PARIS (Reuters) - Sanofi , which reported higher quarterly profit on Friday boosted by its Genzyme division, is confident Medivation shareholders will back its proposed takeover of the U.S. cancer drug company. The French drugmaker went public on Thursday with a $9.3 billion offer to buy Medivation after it stonewalled its takeover approach, setting up what could be a lengthy battle. "We are confident that Medivation shareholders will ultimately share our strong belief that our offer ... would provide significant and immediate cash value," Sanofi Chief Executive Olivier Brandicourt said on a conference call.



Hackett says drink not drugs behind mile high meltdown
29 Apr 2016 at 12:33am

Australian long distance swimming great Grant Hackett has admitted that binge drinking was behind his altercation with another passenger on a flight earlier this month and said he was seeking help to quit alcohol. The 35-year-old former Olympic champion was spoken to by police after the incident on a flight from the Australian Olympic trials in Adelaide to Melbourne. Hackett has admitted to a dependence on prescription drugs in the past but said on Friday that the incident on the plane had come after he had been drinking in the wake of his failure to secure a spot on the team for this year's Rio Olympics.

Liberian soccer star-turned-politician Weah to run for president
29 Apr 2016 at 12:03am

By James Harding Giahyue CONGO TOWN, Liberia (Reuters) - Liberian international soccer star-turned-politician George Weah said on Thursday he will make a second bid for the presidency of the impoverished West African nation in an election next year. Chanting "You can have the whole world but give me Weah," thousands of his backers packed onto the grounds of his Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) headquarters in the capital, Congo Town, to listen to the announcement. Liberia has spent more than a decade rebuilding from a long civil war that ended in 2003 and decimated infrastructure in the nation founded in the 19th century by freed American slaves.

28 Apr 2016 at 11:41pm

By Parisa Hafezi ANKARA (Reuters) - Iranians lined up outside polling stations on Friday to vote in a second round of parliamentary elections, state TV reported, with allies of President Hassan Rouhani seeking to wrest more seats from hardliners. The current parliament is dominated by hardline allies of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. "People will vote for 68 undecided seats in constituencies that candidates failed to get 25 percent of votes cast in the first round of the election," said Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, state TV reported.



Japan's corpse hotels upset some of the neighbors
28 Apr 2016 at 10:29pm

Tucked away in a quiet residential street in Kawasaki city in Japan is a refurbished workshop with a plain silver exterior and black draped windows that residents describe as creepy. The business inside, Sousou, is one of Japan's latest so-called corpse hotels, a camouflaged morgue used to store some of Japan's mounting pile of bodies waiting for a spot in one of the nation's overworked crematoriums. ?Crematories need to be built, but there isn?t any space to do so and that is creating funeral refugees," said Hisao Takegishi, who opened the business in 2014.



FBI paid under $1 million to unlock San Bernardino iPhone: sources
28 Apr 2016 at 6:25pm

By Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI paid under $1 million for the technique used to unlock the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters - a figure smaller than the $1.3 million the agency's chief initially indicated the hack cost, several U.S. government sources said on Thursday. The Federal Bureau of Investigation will be able to use the technique to unlock other iPhone 5C models running iOS 9 - the specifications of the shooter's phone - without additional payment to the contractor who provided it, these people added. FBI Director James Comey last week said the agency paid more to get into the iPhone than he will make in the remaining seven years and four months he has in his job, suggesting the hack cost over $1.3 billion, based on his annual salary.

28 Apr 2016 at 5:26pm

(Reuters) - Quest Diagnostics Inc said it has received emergency authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to sell the first commercially developed diagnostic test for Zika in the United States, a step that may help expand testing capacity and speed diagnosis of the virus.

Quest, in its announcement on Thursday, said it plans to make the new test broadly available to doctors for patient testing, including in Puerto Rico, by early next week.

Factbox: Why the Zika virus is causing alarm
28 Apr 2016 at 5:23pm
(Reuters) - Global health officials are racing to better understand the Zika virus behind a major outbreak that began in Brazil last year and has spread to many countries in the Americas. Zika is transmitted to people through the bite of infected female mosquitoes, primarily the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the same type that spreads dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said Aedes mosquitoes are found in all countries in the Americas except Canada and continental Chile, and the virus will likely reach all countries and territories of the region where Aedes mosquitoes are found.
