COVID-19 Caused U.S. Life Expectancy to Drop 1.5 Years
Life expectancy in the United States dropped the most in more than seven decades last year as Covid-19 sent hundreds of thousands of Americans to early deaths.

The tally represents an extraordinarily grim accounting of an ongoing catastrophe. The first year of the pandemic delivered a bigger blow to American life expectancy than any year of the Vietnam War, the AIDS crisis or the “deaths of...

GPS Vaccine Plus Opdivo Shows Promise for Pleural Mesothelioma
A novel, targeted cancer vaccine combined with the immunotherapy drug Opdivo has shown surprising efficacy for mesothelioma patients whose disease no longer responds to standard chemotherapy. In a phase I clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the galinpepimut-S vaccine, also known as GPS, has produced an impressive, anti-tumor synergy with Opdivo, based upon early data. GPS targets the WT1 protein, which is expressed in high levels of various cancers but rarely seen in normal adult cells. The protein has been especially resistant to standard chemotherapy.
