A Lifesaving Pump for Cancer Patients Is Being Phased Out

Thursday 19:09 GMT

A medical device that can add years to the lives of cancer patients is about to become unavailable, because its manufacturer has decided to stop producing it.

The device, the size of a hockey puck, is implanted in the abdomen to pump high doses of chemotherapy directly into the liver for cancer that has spread there, usually from colon or rectal tumors. The treatment can help prevent tumors from recurring after they are removed from the liver, and can shrink inoperable growths in the liver so that they can be cut out.

Giants Select Saquon Barkley; Jets Choose Sam Darnold

Today 04:19 GMT

An easy pick, Gettleman said — the Giants gifted the Jets a perfect situation: their choice of every remaining quarterback except Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma, whom Cleveland took at No. 1.

Their decision to take the versatile rusher Saquon Barkley of Penn State at No. 2 affirmed General Manager Dave Gettleman’s opinion, declared last week and reiterated Thursday night, that the perceived devaluing of a running back is a myth, and corroborated the team’s stated comfort with Eli Manning quarterbacking the team this season and, it seems, beyond.

The Common Advice for Those With Thinning Bones Could Be All Wrong

Thursday 13:39 GMT

A decade ago, it was common to suggest medications, which prevent bone loss and help build mass, for healthy women with osteopenia, in which bones are thinning but not enough to be classified as osteoporosis, says Dr. Cosman, a paid consultant to companies that sell the medications.

When thinning bones from osteoporosis led to a series of vertebral fractures, she searched the Web for a remedy—and found a local scientist-run clinic proposing a regimen of strenuous weight training.

The Changing of the Guard in the NBA

Thursday 13:38 GMT

These players oozing with promise—Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Donovan Mitchell and especially Anthony Davis—are going to inherit control of the sport and define the post-LeBron James era of the NBA in the years to come.

Embiid is a 7-foot-something force who somehow averages more 3-point attempts per game than Reggie Miller did in the first two seasons of his career, and Simmons is a 6-foot-10 rookie point guard who already plays with the internal metronome of someone who doesn’t have his sheer talent.

How a week of triumph for Trump was convulsed by chaos and contradiction

Today 04:18 GMT

“There’s a sense that if ‘the swamp’ is not busy trying to block the Trump agenda and block Trump appointees, they’re trying to drive down those people on the Cabinet pushing the agenda,” Burgum said.
