FDA links TNF blockers to cancer in children

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is requiring that TNF blockers have a warning added to their labels indicating an increased risk of cancer in children. "An analysis of U.S. reports of cancer in children and adolescents treated with TNF blockers showed an increased risk of cancer, occurring after 30 months of treatment on average. About half of the cancers were lymphomas, a type of cancer involving cells of the immune system. Some of the reported cancers were fatal." More information from Newsday, the Wall Street Journal and WebMD.

'Please, don't call me homeless'

Worn down by depression and ankylosing spondylitis, by 1997 Norman Carroll found himself living on the streets of Palo Alto, California. Down, but not out, he began fighting for the place of the homeless -- or as he prefers, "unhoused" -- in society, and challenging people's preconceptions of what it meant to be on the street. Last year, Norman's lottery number came up: he now lives on a housing voucher in a studio apartment, surrounded by the affluence of Silicon Valley. The San Jose Mercury News has the story of this unique individual.
