GSK outlook brightens as Brexit brings currency windfall
27 Jul 2016 at 4:18am

By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - Demand for new medicines helped GlaxoSmithKline grow earnings in the second quarter and the drugmaker is set for big gains in the rest of 2016 thanks to a weak pound, after Britain's vote to leave the European Union. GSK, whose outgoing chief executive Andrew Witty had backed Britain staying in the EU, will benefit from the fact that many of its costs are in sterling while it earns nearly all its money overseas. Quarterly sales, in sterling terms, rose 11 percent to 6.53 billion pounds ($8.55 billion) in the three months to June, generating core earnings per share (EPS) up 42 percent at 24.5 pence, GSK said on Wednesday.



Lilly CEO Lechleiter to retire; Ricks to succeed
27 Jul 2016 at 4:08am

(Reuters) - Eli Lilly and Co said on Wednesday Chief Executive John Lechleiter would retire by the end of the year and would be succeeded by senior vice president David Ricks on January 1. Lechleiter joined Lilly in 1979 as a senior organic chemist, and became the CEO in April 2008. The Indianapolis drugmaker's earnings growth resumed last year after three years of tumbling sales caused by competition from generic drugs.



GSK chases next biotech asthma drug with $230 million J&J deal
27 Jul 2016 at 4:03am

By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - GlaxoSmithKline has bought global rights to an experimental drug from Johnson & Johnson for up to 175 million pounds ($230 million), raising its bet on a new generation of biotech medicines for severe asthma. The British drugmaker recently launched Nucala, its first injectable biological asthma drug, and is looking for additional treatments to help more patients who are still struggling with breathing problems. Up to 20 percent of asthma patients suffer from severe disease that is not well controlled with traditional inhalers.



MSF fears famine in northeast Nigeria; calls for UN food pipeline
27 Jul 2016 at 4:01am

By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Severely malnourished children are dying in large numbers in northeast Nigeria, the former stronghold of Boko Haram militants where food supplies are close to running out, Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Wednesday. The medical charity, also known as Doctors Without Borders, urged the United Nations to set up emergency food transports to the area, where up to 800,000 civilians have been cut off for over a year, it said "The situation is a large-scale humanitarian disaster.... There is a vital need to have a food pipeline in place to save the population that can be saved," MSF general director Bruno Jochum told a news briefing. "We are talking at least about pockets of what is close to a famine." Under military escort, a MSF team delivered some 40 metric tonnes of food last week to Banki, a town of 12,000 near the Cameroon border, including emergency supplies for more than 4,000 children.

U.N. calls for humanitarian truce in Yemen's Taiz province
27 Jul 2016 at 3:53am

The United Nations called for a humanitarian truce in the Yemeni province of Taiz after government forces captured a town from Iran-allied Houthi militia in heavy fighting that has spurred allegations of war crimes. The fighting has complicated U.N.-sponsored peace talks, as envoys for the Houthis have delayed responding to U.N. proposals calling for Houthi pullouts from cities they control, including the capital Sanaa, and the creation of an inclusive government. James McGoldrick, the U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, voiced alarm at increasing bloodshed in the southwestern Taiz Governorate, particularly the al-Sarari area, and the closure of Taiz city, the regional capital.



Anthem profit beats estimates as Medicaid memberships rise
27 Jul 2016 at 3:34am

(Reuters) - U.S. health insurer Anthem Inc reported a better-than-expected profit as enrolments rose in its Medicaid plans, which cater to low-income Americans. The company, whose proposed acquisition of rival Cigna Corp is being challenged by U.S. antitrust authorities, said overall memberships increased 3.2 percent in the second quarter. Anthem's memberships have been rising in the past couple of years as more Americans sign up for its Medicaid plans expanded under President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. ...


Japan mass killing sparks debate: why didn't the system prevent it?
27 Jul 2016 at 2:27am
By Linda Sieg and Minami Funakoshi TOKYO (Reuters) - A day after the mass murder of 19 people at a facility for the disabled, many shocked Japanese were questioning why the only suspect was discharged after just two weeks from a hospital to which he'd been forcibly committed under mental health laws. "However, there were warning signs before the incident," said the Asahi, one of Japan's two biggest newspapers. The suspect, 26-year-old Satoshi Uematsu, gave himself up to police just an hour after the frenzied attack at the Tsukui Yamayuri-En facility in the sleepy town of Sagamihara, southwest of Tokyo early on Tuesday.

27 Jul 2016 at 1:53am

By Tom Westbrook SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia' Northern Territory on Wednesday suspended the use of hoods and restraints on children as Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull resisted pressure to broaden an inquiry into mistreatment in youth detention centers. Turnbull ordered the inquiry on Tuesday after national television aired video showing guards at a juvenile detention center teargassing teenage aboriginal inmates and strapping a half-naked, hooded boy to a chair.



GlaxoSmithKline invests $360 million in UK despite Brexit vote
27 Jul 2016 at 1:23am

GlaxoSmithKline plans 275 million pounds ($361 million) of new investments at three drug manufacturing sites in Britain, signaling its confidence in the country despite last month's vote to leave the European Union. Britain's biggest drugmaker, which had argued against Brexit before the referendum, believes the UK remains an attractive place for making medicines, thanks to a skilled workforce and relatively low tax rates. GSK said on Wednesday it was investing in sites at Barnard Castle, in the north of England, Montrose, in Scotland, and Ware, north of London.



Chicken scent offers hope for malaria prevention
27 Jul 2016 at 12:50am

A team of insect experts led by Professor Habte Tekie at the University of Addis Ababa began their investigation after noticing that mosquitoes bite humans and other animals but stay away from chickens. "We went into the chemical basis involved in repelling malaria mosquitoes by odours emanating from the chickens... The results show that compounds from chicken have very good potential as repellent," Tekie told AFP.

Japanese police raid house of knife attack suspect
26 Jul 2016 at 11:56pm

By Hyun Oh SAGAMIHARA, Japan (Reuters) - Japanese police on Wednesday raided the house of a 26-year-old man suspected of stabbing to death 19 people and wounding dozens at a facility for the disabled in a small town near Tokyo, Japan's worst mass killing in decades. About half a dozen plainclothes police entered the home of Satoshi Uematsu, a former employee of the facility, as reporters and television cameras stood by. Uematsu was earlier sent from a regional jail in Sagamihara town, about 45 km (25 miles) southwest of Tokyo, to the Yokohama District Public Prosecutors Office in Kanagawa prefecture.



The ER department fighting the US opioid crisis
26 Jul 2016 at 11:20pm

Opioid abuse has turned into a public health crisis in America, blamed for the deaths of tens of thousands of people. Since January, St Joseph's Regional Medical Center, which boasts the largest emergency room in New Jersey, has stopped prescribing opioid painkillers in all but essential cases, slashing overall use by more than 40 percent. While these powerful drugs are an "excellent" medication for terminal cancer patients or those with a broken leg, for the vast majority there are far safer courses of treatment, says emergency medicine chief Mark Rosenberg.



Climate change risk threatens 18 U.S. military sites: study
26 Jul 2016 at 10:58pm

By Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Rising sea levels due to hurricanes and tidal flooding intensified by climate change will put military bases along the U.S. East Coast and Gulf Coast at risk, according to a report released on Wednesday. Nonprofit group the Union of Concerned Scientists analyzed 18 military installations that represent more than 120 coastal bases nationwide to weigh the impact of climate change on their operations. Faster rates of sea level rises in the second half of this century could mean that tidal flooding will become a daily occurrence for some installations, pushing useable land needed for military training and testing into tidal zones, said the report titled "The U.S. Military on the Front Lines of Rising Seas." By 2050, most of these sites will be hit by more than 10 times the number of floods than at present, the report said, and at least half of them will experience daily floods.
