Bayer ordered to pay $81M in Roundup cancer case

A federal jury has ordered Bayer to pay $81 million to a California man who said his use of the company's Roundup weedkiller caused him to develop cancer. The ruling is the latest against Bayer involving Roundup, which was developed by St. Louis-based Monsanto before the company was acquired by Bayer last year for $62.5 billion. A San Francisco jury said Wednesday that the company is liable for the man's non-Hodgkin lymphoma, according to Reuters. Edwin Hardeman was awarded $5.9 million in compensatory…

Lymphomas are the heterogeneous group of malignant diseases characterized by proliferation of malignant lymphoid cells or their precursors. Lymphomas are the ninth most common cancer worldwide and constitute 3.2% of malignant tumor. Lymphomas are generally classified to two main categories: Hodgkin's lymphomas (HL) and the non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL), and about 90% are NHL. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma represents 4.3% of all new cancer cases in the U.S. and the ninth most common cancer in male patient of Taiwan.

Targeting IL-6 receptor reduces IgM levels and tumor growth in Waldenström macroglobulinemia. Oncotarget. 2019 May 21;10(36):3400-3407 Authors: Han W, Matissek SJ, Jackson DA, Sklavanitis B, Elsawa SF Abstract The tumor microenvironment (TME) plays an important role in cancer cell biology and is implicated in resistance to therapy. In Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM), a subtype of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the TME modulates WM biology by secreting cytokines that promote the malignant phenotype. In previous work, we have shown that TME-IL-6 promotes WM cell growth and IgM secretion in WM. Tocili...

Conclusion: We report for the first time a case of a patient with Muir-Torre syndrome who developed an orbital recurrent SC with an incidental finding of a lacrimal gland B non-Hodgkin lymphoma consistent with SLL. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of this coexistence of multiple cancer types in patients with sebaceous carcinoma and Muir-Torre syndrome.Ocul Oncol Pathol

(American Society of Hematology) How slow -- or fast -- older individuals with blood cancers are able to walk four meters (about 13 feet) holds critical information about their overall health and strongly predicts survival and unplanned hospital visits regardless of age, cancer or treatment type, or other factors, according to a new study published today inBlood. The association was strongest in those with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
