SAN FRANCISCO - A groundskeeper whose $289 million award against Monsanto Co. was ultimately reduced to $78 million in his glyphosate cancer lawsuit filed a brief on Sept. 30 in a California appeals court contending that the court should disregard the attempts of various amici curiae to "inappropriately inject" new arguments and issues into the appeal (DeWayne Johnson v. Monsanto Company, Nos. A155940 and A156706, Calif. App., 1st Dist.).
SAN FRANCISCO - Monsanto Co. on Sept. 30 filed a brief in California appellate court contending that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, is not likely to cause cancer and, therefore, Roundup would be "misbranded" if it included a cancer warning (DeWayne Johnson v. Monsanto Company, Nos. A155940 and A156706, Calif. App, 1st Dist.).
SAN FRANCISCO - The circuit mediator for the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Oct. 4 released from the mediation program two glyphosate cases against Monsanto Co. in which a cancer victim is appealing a district court judge's reduction of his original damages award against the company. Monsanto is cross-appealing the district court's denial of its motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict (JNOV) (Edwin Hardeman v. Monsanto Company, No. 19-16636, 9th Cir.).
ST. LOUIS - A state court judge in Missouri on Oct. 4 postponed indefinitely a cancer victim's lawsuit against Monsanto Co. related to the herbicide Roundup, which contains the active ingredient glyphosate (Walter Winston v. Monsanto Company, No. 1822-CC00515, Mo. Cir., St. Louis City).
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Lowe's Home Centers LLC in an Oct. 4 answer tells a Florida federal court that it has not violated any laws by selling the herbicide Roundup, which contains the ingredient glyphosate, and it denies that glyphosate-containing products cause cancer (Yvette Helen Biddle v. Lowe's Home Centers LLC, No. 19-81251, S.D. Fla.).

Authors: Huh JS, Kim YJ, Kim SD, Park KK Abstract PURPOSE: To analyze the clinical parameters correlated with early recovery of urinary continence after radical prostatectomy, with a focus on urethral mobility during pelvic contraction at catheter removal. METHODS: We prospectively analyzed 67 patients who underwent prostatectomy for prostate cancer at Jeju National University Hospital from January 2015 to June 2018. At the time of catheter removal, a cystography was performed in 67 men (median age, 65 years; range, 55-76 years) who had undergone robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy.

Liquid biopsy refers to a multitude of minimally invasive techniques that can allow a real-time biomolecular characterization of the tumor through the analysis of human body fluids. Areas covered: Herein we provide a comprehensive overview of the role of liquid biopsy in lung cancer, mainly focusing on the most st...
