European Hematology Association: Estudio multicentro de etiqueta abierta en Fase 2 de ibrutinib

2017-06-24

El injerto crónico frente a enfermedad huésped (cGVHD) es una complicación grave y que supone una amenaza para la vida que se da en muchos de los pacientes que se someten a transplante alogénico de célula madre. Se sabe que tanto las células B como T están implicadas en la pato-psicología de cGVHD. Ibrutinib, un inhibidor de la quinasa-tirosina de Bruton, se sabe que inhibe las células B; estudios recientes han demostrado que ibrutinib además inhibe los subtipos específicos de células T al bloquear la quinasa de células T inducible por interleuquina-2. En modelos de ratones, ibrutinib retrasó la progresión y redujo la severidad de cGVHD. Este ensayo multicentro de etiqueta abierta se llevó a cabo con el fin de evaluar la seguridad y eficacia de ibrutinib en 42 pacientes con cGVHD activo cuya enfermedad había fallado entre 1 y 3 tratamientos; los pacientes recibieron ibrutinib a diario (420 mg) hasta llegar a la progresión cGVHD o toxicidad que limitaba la dosis.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Gulf Coast states were in for a third day of rough weather as Tropical Storm Cindy sloshed ashore early Thursday in southwestern Louisiana.

Ferguson settles lawsuit over black teen killed by police in Missouri

2017-06-21

The parents of black teenager Michael Brown have settled a lawsuit with Ferguson, Missouri, over his fatal shooting by a white city police officer in 2014, according to a federal court document filed on Monday. Terms of the wrongful death settlement between Ferguson and Brown’s parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, were not disclosed. The judgment was approved by U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber. Ferguson, a blue-collar, largely black suburb of St. Louis, gained international notoriety after police officer Darren Wilson gunned down Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old shoplifting suspect. Brown and McSpadden, his ex-wife, sued the city, former Police Chief Tom Jackson, and Wilson in 2015. Brown’s death sparked months of sometimes violent protests in Ferguson and around the United States, fueled by subsequent police killings of unarmed black men in other cities. It also spurred the “Black Lives Matter” movement that has cast a spotlight...

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A boy on an Alabama beach was struck and killed Wednesday by a log washed ashore by storm surge from Tropical Storm Cindy, which spun bands of severe weather ashore from the Florida panhandle to east Texas as it churned ever closer to the Gulf coast.

It was the first known fatality from Cindy. The storm formed Tuesday and was expected to make landfall some time...
