Question of the Day
In a separate study presented at ASCO, previously untreated people with advanced melanoma treated with Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Yervoy, or ipilimumab, plus chemotherapy lived an average of two months longer than people who got chemotherapy alone.
Yervoy works by spurring the immune system to fight off the cancer. Vemurafenib is designed for use in patients with tumors that have a mutation in a gene known as BRAF that allows melanoma cells to grow. About half of all melanomas have the genetic aberration.
Three more in Joplin die of tornado injuries
JOPLIN — Three more people have died from injuries sustained during a massive tornado two weeks ago in Joplin.
Officials in Joplin said on the city’s website Sunday that the three additional people died recently from their injuries, bringing the total number of fatalities from the EF-5 tornado to 141. The city did not identify the three victims.
The city says it plans to host a town-hall meeting Monday night at the Taylor Performing Arts Center on the Missouri Southern State University campus. Officials at the meeting are expected to give details on removing debris from the tornado.
The May 22 twister demolished about a third of the southwest Missouri city.
Trial to begin for man accused of 11 murders
CLEVELAND — Cleveland residents will be forced this week to revisit a dark chapter in the city’s history.
Trial resumes Monday for 51-year-old convicted sex offender Anthony Sowell, who’s charged with killing 11 women and hiding their remains in his home and backyard. The victims’ bodies were removed months ago but the stench clings to Mr. Sowell’s boarded-up house.
The smell is a reminder of the horrors that unfolded in November 2009, when police began pulling the remains of the women from the depths of his rundown white duplex.
Angry relatives contend police never bothered to look for their loved ones because they were addicted to drugs and lived in a poor and dangerous part of town. All the victims were black. Most were strangled with household objects.
