Ramucirumab Shows Survival Benefits with Pleural Mesothelioma
Adding the drug ramucirumab to gemcitabine chemotherapy worked especially well in a recent clinical trial involving second-line treatment for patients with pleural mesothelioma.

A Climate Change-Induced Landslide Is Wreaking Havoc on Denali National Park
For decades, the rangers at Denali National Park in Alaska were easily winning their battle against a slow-moving landslide underneath the park’s only road.
