(AP Photo/Ben Margot)OAKLAND, California — Kevin Durant’s baseline jumper swished through the net just barely too late, and the Houston Rockets rallied in the fourth to beat Golden State 122-121 Tuesday on the night the Warriors received their championship rings.The Warriors had one last chance with 10.6 seconds left and Durant came up with the ball after Stephen Curry had missed. Durant and the Warriors thought they’d won and confetti began to fall when the two remaining officials — the third got hurt in the fourth quarter — reviewed the play and said Durant’s shot was after the buzzer.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award “Basketball accomplishments to me now are just what they are,” Durant said after morning shootaround. “I can kind of separate the two now.

Gbarnga Faces Quarantine

first_imgCogent information filtering in from central Liberia suggests that the Bong County Health Team is poised to quarantine the provincial capital, Gbarnga, if the trend of suspected Ebola deaths throughout the city continues as it has in recent days.Just this week, a total of ten suspected Ebola deaths occurred from the Civil Compound and the Millionaire communities of Gbarnga, Bong County. In at least one case, it was an entire household.Speaking to the Daily Observer on condition of anonymity, a senior member of the County Health Team said that although there was no Ebola test conducted on the dead, the circumstances under which the persons died, it is almost impossible to rule out hemorrhagic fever.“The manner and form people in which people are expiring in the city in recent days has created panic among the residents, including the County Health Team; so the Team has to take some actions to protect others who have not fallen prey to the disease,” the official said.The Senior Health Official explained that the quarantine exercise will serve as a means to contain the spread of the disease in the city and its environs.  “With the number of deaths in recent days in the city, the County Health Team is troubled, so we have to do everything in our power to discontinue the increase of infections in other communities.”The official told this paper that one of the underlying reasons for the increase in deaths in recent times is the entrenched culture of silence on the part of Liberians; something he said is going to harm everyone.As a result, the health official said, the County Health Team is finding it tremendously difficult to fight the Ebola virus in the city.  Also, suspected Ebola virus carriers are not willing to be quarantined or to report to the health facilities for early check up.When the Daily Observer sampled the views of ordinary citizens on the purported information, there were mixed reactions. Some welcomed the idea of quarantine, while others described it as harsh and a violation of human rights.Some of the citizens argued that the quarantining of the city will impose economic hardship to the already impoverished residents, especially given the current State of Emergency where some business people have already hiked prices of their commodities.  Others argued that the action will help to restrict the movement of people who are suspected carriers of the Ebola virus.It has been established by this paper that entertainment centers in the city are virtually without customers due to the alarming death toll in Gbarnga suspectedly from the Ebola virus.Meanwhile, the citizens of Gbarnga have called on the Liberian Government through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) to provide the necessary protective materials to the various hospitals to enable the health workers return to duty and resume services. Residents agree that the deadly Ebola virus exists but are also concerned that other people are also being killed by curable diseases such as malaria due to the closure of the two main hospitals in Bong County.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Spanish HIV Researcher Faces €210,000 Fine Over Unauthorized Clinical Trial

first_imgMADRID—A Spanish HIV/AIDS researcher is facing a hefty fine for violating clinical trial regulations. A court of appeals has upheld most of a lower court’s verdict against Vicente Soriano, a physician at the Hospital Carlos III here and a well-known clinical researcher with hundreds of publications to his name.Soriano is liable for €210,000 for conducting a clinical trial without approval from the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products, failing to obtain insurance for the trial, and informing participants he had his hospital’s ethical approval when he did not, according to the ruling, which was published 14 January. But the court overturned a €6000 fine for obstructing the initial investigation, which took place in 2010.The phase IV clinical trial, which Soriano registered on ClinicalTrials.gov in July 2009, sought to establish whether HIV patients with undetectable levels of the virus in their blood can replace so-called protease inhibitors in their treatment cocktail with a powerful new compound, raltegravir, the first in a class called integrase inhibitors that has fewer side effects. Soriano’s team divided patients into three groups with different treatment regimens; one group took raltegravir only once a day, instead of twice, the standard. (Simplifying a treatment regimen can help patients adhere to it.) The study enrolled 311 patients, 222 of whom completed 24 weeks of follow-up; a paper published in HIV Clinical Trials in 2010 showed that raltegravir suppressed the virus successfully in all but 13 of them.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)An anonymous tipster told Madrid’s health department that the trial lacked the proper regulatory and ethical approvals, according to the court’s ruling, and between 24 and 29 November 2010, the department sent inspectors to examine Soriano’s records. In October 2011, a Madrid court issued him fines of €216,000.Soriano appealed the fines on various points; the core of his defense, however, supported by three Spanish expert witnesses, was that the study was retrospective and observational, and that the treatment changes were within the normal realm of what doctors might recommend for any patient.One of the seven magistrates hearing the case in Madrid’s Superior Court of Justice agreed, but the majority did not. They wrote in the verdict that “the appeal seeks to avoid the fact that the project not only proposed a change in dose but also a change in the medicine.” One of the expert witnesses seems to gloss over the fact that patients were put on a new type of drug by claiming, without evidence, that they were already taking raltegravir, the court added. The fines, two for “very serious” infractions and one for a “serious” infraction, were the lowest allowed by the law.”This study was without doubt a clinical trial,” that would need proper ethical approval, says bioethicist Ruth Macklin of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. After studying Soriano’s study protocols, Macklin says they are incompatible with observational studies.Soriano declined to be interviewed about the trial or the appeal, but in an e-mail to ScienceInsider, he said that he and his group are victims of “harassment” related to a plan to dismantle the infectious diseases group at Carlos III. The hospital is in the midst of a merger with Madrid’s Hospital La Paz; both are owned by the Madrid regional government and parts were scheduled for privatization until this week, when a court ordered the cancellation of the plans.It’s unclear whether the hospital will take action against Soriano. While his appeal was pending, he continued his medical practice, but the ethics committee has not approved any clinical trials of his since March 2011, says Rafael Pérez-Santamarina Feijóo, the managing director of Hospital La Paz. Now that the court’s final ruling is available, the hospital will evaluate how to proceed, Pérez-Santamarina says. A spokesperson for Madrid’s Medical College told ScienceInsider that it has taken no formal disciplinary action against Soriano.last_img read more
