Takeda said the approval was based on an early-to-mid-stage trial testing 114 patients with non-small cell lung cancer, with results showing clinically meaningful responses with a median duration of about 18 months. Exkivity was approved for patients with a specific gene mutation called EGFR Exon20 insertions in non-small cell lung cancer, whose disease has progressed on or after chemotherapy. Non-small cell lung cancer is the most common form of lung cancer, accounting for about 85% of the estimated 2.2 million new cases of lung cancer diagnosed each year worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
Eganville – Concerns over overnight parking at McRae Park have led to worries about tents, campfires and the park turning into a campground. “The concern was that on two occasions there were five RVs there and the concern was it was going to turn to tents and bonfires,” Bonnechere Valley Mayor Jennifer Murphy said during a committee meeting of council last Tuesday. Following the concerns raised by neighbours of the park, By-law Enforcement Officer Mark Schroeder did put up some no overnight camp
Thousands of Salvadorans took to the streets on Wednesday to protest against President Nayib Bukele, who they accuse of a power grab aimed at weakening democratic institutions and consolidating his grip on power. Replacements seen as friendly to Bukele were swiftly voted, which generated harsh criticism from the United States as well as top international rights groups deriding the moves as a power grab. The protesters, who vandalized an ATM where you can exchange bitcoins for dollars, also rebuked a court ruling saying the president can serve two consecutive terms, opening the door for Bukele to stand for re-election in 2024.

Former premier Danny Williams defended his role in the debt-ridden Muskrat Falls project during a speech at a conference about Newfoundland and Labrador's economic trajectory on Wednesday. In his speech, Williams explained the rationale behind his government's major economic decisions, including Muskrat Falls. Williams acknowledged that the project is "polarizing," but said criticisms of the project are made easier with hindsight. "Critics have been so unrelenting in their determination to see t
Unvaccinated New Brunswick residents and visitors will soon find it difficult to access a wide array of businesses, restaurants and entertainment venues as the province deals with the most newly confirmed COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began. A visibly frustrated Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health — as she announced a daily record number of new COVID cases and another virus-related death — pointed the finger of blame directly at misinformed people who refuse to get vaccinat
It's the one time of year where all local politicians in B.C. gather together — but for the second year in a row, it's happening virtually. The annual Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) convention is taking place this week, allowing mayors and councillors to lobby the provincial government and trade best practices on local government. Like last year, it takes place with an election campaign underway — federal this year, instead of provincial — and continued uncertainty during a pandemic, but or
The Union of BC Municipalities’s newest primer on climate action and the municipal pension plan shows MPP’s exposure to fossil fuels and its position on divestment. For the $66.5 billion fund, the largest in Western Canada, 75 cents of every pension dollar comes from investment returns. British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCI), which manages asset selection for MPP, does not recommend a divestment strategy saying it “reduces an investor’s ability to influence and to drive more su
Manitoulin Island resident Sarah Gabrielle Baron on is taking on leader of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC), Erin O’Toole, as an independent candidate in the riding of Durham, Ontario. Part of the reason she chose that riding was to use the platform to bring small modular nuclear reactors (SMRs) into the election conversation. Ms. Baron is a vocal opponent of SMRs, and Durham is home to the Darlington nuclear generating station and next door to Pickering. Once she began knocking on doors a
A former U.S. Marine from Florida on Wednesday became the latest defendant associated with the Oath Keepers militia group to plead guilty to criminal charges related to the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot. Jason Dolan, 45, of Wellington, Florida, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and obstructing an official proceeding. U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta said that under federal sentencing guidelines, Dolan faced a prison term of between 63 and 78 months, though the court could deviate from the guidelines.

Scotch Bush – When Craig and Kayla Brooker purchased their 100-acre farm they knew they wanted to do something with the land and as they have come to know the property, the natural progression was to use the abundant wild apple trees dotting the fields. “We had a loose plan,” he said. “We knew we wanted to do agricultural work on it and we were waiting to see what the land told us. We did a lot of walking around and saw more and more apple trees. So, we did our research and one of the most excit
Tammy Faye Bakker wore a lot of makeup. It was armor — a way for a person who didn’t consider herself beautiful to simply exist in the world. So it's a particularly a cruel irony that the mascara was also the thing that made her a target and a joke long before she and her ex-husband were brought down by brazen theft and misuse of ministry funds. Women have never been afforded the luxury of simply existing in the world, especially when they dare to live in public as Tammy did. Who cares what she
Canadians voted in advanced polls in record numbers ahead of an upcoming election, some looking to beat crowds amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to data released this week, though an expected avalanche of mail-in ballots has failed to materialize. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who called the snap Sept. 20 election to try to secure a majority, is now fighting to keep his job with his Liberal party in a tight race https://reut.rs/39b2LbW against their main rival, the Conservatives. Nearly 5.8 million Canadians voted early this election, up 18.5% from the 2019 vote, preliminary data from Elections Canada shows.
If just one resident, one business or the city of Yellowknife opposes the "only" suitable proposed day shelter location, unhoused residents displaced by the latest COVID-19 outbreak will be cut off from the services they need most, according to Health Minister Julie Green. In an open letter published Monday, and anticipating public opposition, Green implored residents to support the establishment of a temporary day shelter by October in the former Legion building on Franklin Ave. "There are no o
CHARLOTTETOWN — Prince Edward Island announced Wednesday it is bringing back its mask mandate and introducing new testing rules for children as the province reported five new COVID-19 infections. Premier Dennis King told reporters masks will be required once again in indoor public spaces beginning Friday at 8 a.m. All children between 8 and 12 years old will have to take a COVID-19 test upon entering the province, and any child in that age group who has left the Island will have to be tested bef
Would Mehdi Belhadj, the former UPEI student born in Saudi Arabia who was detained on P.E.I. and faced deportation after accessing mental health care for which he could not pay, be in that situation if he were white? That question was posed to Tamara Steele, executive director of the Black Cultural Society of P.E.I., at the end of her presentation to a committee of MLAs Wednesday on the state of racism on P.E.I. Her answer was short and quick: "No." Steele had spent the previous hour and 45 minu
PORT HAWKESBURY, N.S. — Less than a month before Lionel Desmond killed his wife, mother, daughter and himself in 2017, the Afghanistan war veteran called a community group near his home in Nova Scotia to seek couples counselling. Desmond's decision to get help on Dec. 9, 2016, was discussed today as part of an ongoing provincial fatality inquiry in Port Hawkesbury, N.S., which started hearings in January 2020. One of the key mandates of the inquiry is to determine if Desmond and his family had a
Claire Rattée, the Conservative candidate for Skeena–Bulkley Valley said she will not be signing an online pledge put forth by a Wet’suwet’en Gidimt’en clan asking candidates to commit to not provide federal funding for LNG Canada and Coastal GasLink projects in Northern B.C. Rattée cited Canada Elections Act (550) and said it prohibits candidates from signing pledges of any kind between nomination and polling day. Jennifer Wickham, media coordinator for Gidimt’en checkpoint, confirmed that the

The health authority announced Wednesday that many elective and same-day procedures would be put on hold at least until the end of next week to free up bed space for overcrowded emergency departments. Dr. Todd Howlett, executive medical director for the central zone, said the decision was not made lightly.
