Senators ask Justice Dept to consider probe of EpiPen Medicaid classification
28 Sep 2016 at 7:16am
U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal, Charles Grassley and Amy Klobuchar asked the Justice Department to investigate whether Mylan NV may have misclassified its EpiPen in order to pay lower rebates to the states. In a letter released on Wednesday, the lawmakers noted that Mylan classified the EpiPen with the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program as a non-innovator multiple source drug, which pays a rebate of 13 percent to states, rather than innovator, which pays a rebate of a minimum of 23.1 percent.


Warplanes knock out Aleppo hospital as Russian-backed assault intensifies
28 Sep 2016 at 6:32am

By Ellen Francis and Tom Perry BEIRUT (Reuters) - Russian or Syrian warplanes knocked a major Aleppo hospital out of service on Wednesday, hospital workers said, and ground forces intensified an assault on the city's besieged rebel sector, in a battle that has become a potentially decisive turning point in the civil war. The World Health Organization said it had reports that both hospitals were now out of service. "The warplane flew over us and directly started dropping its missiles ... at around 4 a.m.," Mohammad Abu Rajab, a radiologist at the M10 hospital, the largest trauma hospital in the city's rebel-held sector, told Reuters.



Thais probe babies with microcephaly for Zika link
28 Sep 2016 at 6:05am

Thai doctors are running tests to see whether Zika was the cause of microcephaly in two babies whose mothers are infected with the mosquito-borne virus, a health official said Wednesday. If the remaining pair are found to be linked, they could be the first case of Zika-related microcephaly in Southeast Asia, according to the World Health Organisation. "It is too early to conclude if (the other two) had Zika, we need more information," said Apichai Mongkol, director general of the Department of Medical Sciences.



U.S. House leaders reach deal on Flint, could avert government shutdown
28 Sep 2016 at 5:55am

The Democratic and Republican leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives have agreed to aid Flint, Michigan, resolve its water crisis, aides said on Wednesday, a deal that could clear the way for funding the federal government beyond Friday. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi reached the deal on Tuesday hours after a stopgap funding bill to avoid a federal government shutdown failed to garner enough votes to advance in the Senate. Only 45 senators in the Republican-controlled 100-seat Senate voted in favor of a procedural step needed for consideration of a continuing resolution (CR) to fund federal agencies until Dec. 9.



Monsanto ally Novozymes sees opportunity, risk in Bayer merger
28 Sep 2016 at 5:13am

Novozymes , already grappling with the consequences of low oil and crop prices, is watching anxiously to see what Bayer's purchase of Monsanto will mean for the Danish group's ties with its key agricultural partner. Chief Executive Peder Holk Nielsen said in an interview that a merged Bayer-Monsanto could extend the market for the company's smart microbial crop-boosting products, known as inoculants, but added the union also brings uncertainties. Nielsen has not yet held any discussions with Bayer about the future of its strategic tie-up with Monsanto, the BioAg Alliance, but said he expected to do so before the takeover is completed.


Bombers of civilians in Aleppo will face God's judgment: pope
28 Sep 2016 at 4:56am
Pope Francis urged forces to stop bombing civilians in the Syrian city of Aleppo, warning them on Wednesday they would face God's judgment. Speaking to tens of thousands of people in St. Peter's Square, Francis called Aleppo "this already martyred city, where everybody is dying - children, old people, sick people, young people." He did not name the bombers, but monitors say Syria's government and its Russian backers have stepped up air attacks on rebel-held parts of the northern city since the end of a ceasefire last week. "I renew to all an appeal to commit themselves with all their strength to protect civilians," Francis told the crowd during his weekly address.

28 Sep 2016 at 4:18am

By Joshua Schneyer and M.B. Pell EAST CHICAGO, Indiana (Reuters) - In this industrial northwest Indiana city, hundreds of families who live in a gated public housing community with prim lawns and a new elementary school next door are searching for new homes. The school, temporarily closed, has been taken over by the Environmental Protection Agency and health officials who offer free blood tests to check residents for lead poisoning. Long after the U.S. lead industry left East Chicago, a toxic legacy remains.


Philippine jail brawl wounds inmates set to testify against Duterte rival
28 Sep 2016 at 3:28am
A riot broke out at a Philippine prison on Wednesday, killing one inmate and wounding three, all of whom had been expected to testify at a congressional inquiry on alleged criminal activity by the president's biggest critic. Rolando Asuncion, chief of the Philippines' corrections bureau, said a drug trafficker was stabbed to death in the brawl, and one of the three wounded men, kidnapper Jaybee Sebastian, had been scheduled to give evidence next week. The inquiry, initiated by allies of President Rodrigo Duterte, will test allegations that his rival, Senator Leila de Lima, a former justice minister, was colluding with prison inmates and taking payments from them to fund her poll campaign.

World's first baby born from 3-parent technique: report
28 Sep 2016 at 12:00am

The woman, whose identity was withheld by New Scientist, and her husband sought the help of John Zhang, a doctor from the New Hope Fertility Center in New York City to have a baby that would be genetically related to them but would not carry the inherited disease. Since the mother carried the genes for the disease in her mitochondria, or DNA that is passed down from the maternal side, Zhang used her nuclear DNA and combined it with mitochondria from an egg donor, in a technique known as spindle nuclear transfer.
