Ebola likely to persist in 2015 as communities resist aid: Red Cross
30 Jan 2015 at 6:39am

By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - West Africa will be lucky to wipe out Ebola this year, as the local population remains suspicious of aid workers, especially in Guinea, the Red Cross said on Friday. The virus is "flaring up" in new areas in the region and not all infections are being reported, said Birte Hald, who leads the Ebola coordination and support unit of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. "We are also seeing that in places like Sierra Leone and especially in Guinea that it is flaring up in new districts all the time, with small new chains of transmission, which means that it's not under control and it could flare up big-time again," Hald told a news briefing in Geneva. More than 6,000 Red Cross volunteers are deployed in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, tracing contacts of those infected, isolating suspect cases and ensuring safe burials, she said.



Blast at Shi'ite mosque in southern Pakistan kills 49
30 Jan 2015 at 6:30am

By Mukhtar Ahmed SHIKARPUR, Pakistan (Reuters) - At least 49 people were killed in a powerful explosion at a crowded Shi'ite mosque in Pakistan during Friday prayers, the latest sectarian attack to hit the South Asian nation. Police said the blast was caused either by a suicide bomber or an explosive device which went off when the mosque was at its fullest on Friday afternoon in the center of Shikarpur, a city in Pakistan's southern province of Sindh. Earlier this month, six people were killed and 17 wounded by a suicide bomber outside a Shi'ite mosque in the city of Rawalpindi, also after Friday prayers. "We are trying to ascertain the nature of the blast," said Shikarpur police chief Saqib Ismail Memon.


UK to launch 100,000 genomes project as Obama backs DNA drive
30 Jan 2015 at 5:50am
By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - Gene research is getting a boost on both sides of the Atlantic, with scientists in England set to launch a project on Feb. 2 to analyze 100,000 entire human genomes and U.S. President Barack Obama backing a big new DNA data drive. Obama will announce the U.S. plan to analyze genetic information from more than 1 million American volunteers on Friday as a central part of an initiative to promote so-called precision medicine, officials said. The 100,000 genomes project in England, meanwhile, was first unveiled by the British government two years ago -- but the 11 centers charged with collecting samples will only begin full-scale recruitment from next week. Such large-scale genomic research has become possible because the cost of genome sequencing has plummeted in recent years to around $1,000 per genome.


Singer Shakira gives birth to second child in Barcelona -reports
30 Jan 2015 at 4:38am

Colombian pop star Shakira has given birth in Barcelona to her second child, a boy, Spanish media said on Friday. The singer and her boyfriend, Spanish soccer player Gerard Pique, had their first child, a son named Milan, in 2013. Shakira, 37, and Pique, 27, met in 2010, but only confirmed that they had been in a relationship in March 2011. The "Hips Don't Lie" singer, one of the best-selling Latin pop idols, gave birth in Barcelona's Teknon clinic, local media said, though the hospital said it could not confirm the information.



Obama proposes 'precision medicine' to end one-size-fits-all
30 Jan 2015 at 4:15am

WASHINGTON (AP) ? President Barack Obama is calling for an investment to move away from one-size-fits-all-medicine, toward an approach that tailors treatment to your genes.



U.S. proposes effort to analyze DNA from 1 million people
30 Jan 2015 at 3:54am

By Toni Clarke and Sharon Begley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has proposed analyzing genetic information from more than 1 million American volunteers as part of a new initiative to understand human disease and develop medicines targeted to an individual's genetic make-up. At the heart of the initiative, to be announced on Friday by President Barack Obama, is the creation of a pool of people - healthy and ill, men and women, old and young - who would be studied to learn how genetic variants affect health and disease. The near-term goal is to create more and better treatments for cancer, Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), told reporters on a conference call on Thursday.



France delays pesticide reduction goal by 7 years
30 Jan 2015 at 3:37am

France, the European Union's biggest agricultural producer, has delayed a target to halve pesticide use to 2025 from 2018 after plans to curb their deployment failed, the farm minister said on Friday. France had set a voluntary target of halving pesticide use in the decade to 2018 but it has in fact risen, partly due to adverse weather conditions. Like the EU as a whole, France has sought to become less dependent on pesticides, which are blamed for posing health and environmental risks. The French government has pushed back to 2025 the timeline for halving pesticide use and added an intermediate target of a 25 percent fall by 2020, Agriculture Minister Stephane Le Foll said in an interview in daily newspaper Liberation.



Three months on, fruitless CEO search overshadows Sanofi
30 Jan 2015 at 1:51am

Barring a last-minute breakthrough, drugs firm Sanofi's Chairman Serge Weinberg may have to acknowledge in his results presentation next week that the hunt for a new chief executive is not going well. The manner of Chris Viehbacher's shock dismissal three months ago, and the surprisingly small pay-off he won last week, have cast a long shadow over the process. Paris-schooled Olivier Bohuon, chief executive of British medical devices maker Smith & Nephew, told staff in November he had no plans to leave, and in the same month, former Wyeth boss Bernard Poussot joined the board of Sanofi's rival Roche. Weinberg, who will be 64 on Feb. 10 and does not have a pharmaceuticals background besides his five years on the board, is running Sanofi himself while board member Jean-Rene Fourtou conducts a search -- one which began well before Viehbacher was fired.



Innovative gynocological tool gets FDA approval
30 Jan 2015 at 1:18am

Ladies, the next time you visit the gynecologist those dreaded cervical forceps could be replaced by an entirely new device that's newly approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It's called a suction cervical retractor and while the name may make you want to cross your legs, it is said to be gentler and more efficient. Traditionally, doctors use cervical tenaculum forceps to clamp open or stabilize the cervix and Dr. David Turok, who consulted Bioceptive on their new device, points out that the cervical suction retractor bypasses tissue penetration.



Some doctors won't see patients with anti-vaccine views
30 Jan 2015 at 12:35am

LOS ANGELES (AP) ? With California gripped by a measles outbreak, Dr. Charles Goodman posted a clear notice in his waiting room and on Facebook: His practice will no longer see children whose parents won't get them vaccinated.



Ex-supermodel Waris Dirie says FGM can end in her lifetime - TRFN
30 Jan 2015 at 12:09am

By Emma Batha LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Supermodel turned campaigner against female genital mutilation Waris Dirie said on Thursday she was optimistic that FGM could be eradicated in her lifetime, branding the tradition "a cruel and perfidious war on little girls." "FGM breaches all human rights and has no place in any 21st century society," said Dirie, who underwent FGM in Somalia when she was 5 years old and whose sister bled to death after being cut. Dirie said her Desert Flower Foundation aimed to save 1 million girls across Africa from the "barbaric" ritual in the next few years through a sponsorship project which provides food, kerosene and school fees to families who pledge not to cut their daughters. GROWING MOMENTUM AGAINST FGM Speaking after receiving a human rights award at the House of Lords in London, Dirie welcomed the growing global momentum to stamp out FGM, a procedure which can cause lifelong physical and psychological problems.



March meeting to plan rebuilding of Ebola-hit states
29 Jan 2015 at 11:41pm

By Edmund Blair NAIROBI (Reuters) - Governments and international organisations plan to meet in March to work out how to rebuild three West African nations whose economies have been shattered by Ebola, a U.N. envoy said on Thursday. The number of newly detected cases of Ebola virus infection has been dropping sharply in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia in recent weeks. The World Bank in January projected they would lose $1.6 billion in income this year, over 12 percent of their combined economic output. "The plans at the moment are for a conference to look at the needs of reconstruction organised by the countries themselves, by the United Nations, by the African Union and by the European Union," said David Nabarro, the U.N. special envoy on Ebola.


California lawmaker aims to raise smoking age to 21
29 Jan 2015 at 10:44pm
A California lawmaker introduced legislation on Thursday that aims to raise the legal smoking age to 21 from 18, his office said in a statement, just over a week after a similar move by Washington state's top lawyer. The bill also comes a day after California's top health official said electronic cigarettes are threatening to unravel the state's decades-long effort to reduce tobacco use. Democratic State Senator Ed Hernandez of West Covina, who chairs the chamber's health committee, brought the bill in hopes of keeping more teens from starting smoking. Some 21,300 children begin smoking in the state every year, Kimberly Amazeen of the American Lung Association in California said in the statement, adding that about 40,000 Californians die every year from the effects of smoking.

Suspected Ebola patient admitted to California hospital
29 Jan 2015 at 10:34pm
By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - A patient suspected of contracting Ebola after traveling in West Africa and exhibiting symptoms of the disease was admitted on Thursday to a special isolation hospital unit in Sacramento and was being tested for infection, officials said. The patient was considered at a relatively low risk of infection. Although recently in an area where Ebola transmission is widespread, the person had no known contact with anyone who has had the disease, said Laura McCasland, a spokeswoman for the Sacramento County Public Health Department. McCasland said she did not know precisely where or when the patient had traveled in West Africa, the epicenter of the worst Ebola epidemic on record, or why the individual was there or for how long.

Valeant to buy Dendreon's prostate cancer vaccine Provenge
29 Jan 2015 at 8:05pm
(Reuters) - Bankrupt drugmaker Dendreon Corp has reached a stalking-horse deal with Canada's Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc to sell the worldwide rights to its cancer vaccine, Provenge, and certain assets for $296 million. The deal is subject to higher and better bids and extended the bid deadline to Feb. 10 for interested parties to participate in an auction, Dendreon said on Thursday. A stalking-horse bidder often helps draw others to an auction by setting a floor price, but they also require the bankrupt company to commit to paying break-up and other fees if the stalking horse is outbid. Seattle-based Dendreon filed for bankruptcy protection in November, after sales of Provenge fell short of expectations and left the company deep in debt.
