Former charter school star indicted in alleged $6 million fraud | Philadelphia Daily News | Medical marijuana | Scoop.it

By Regina Medina

 

"Veteran educator Dorothy June Brown had a penchant for establishing charter schools in the Philadelphia area. And then stealing from them, according to the feds.

 

"Brown, of Haverford, bilked $6 million from 2007 to April 2011 from three charter schools she founded, the U.S. Attorney's Office alleged in a 62-count indictment on Tuesday. The school's are: Agora Cyber Charter School based in Wayne; Planet Abacus Charter School in Tacony; and Laboratory Charter School of Communication and Languages, with locations in Overbrook, Northern Liberties and Wynnefield."

A Philadelphia City Councilwoman wants more of city government more accessible to those who don't speak English.

Councilwoman Maria Quinones-Sanchez wants to mandate that all offices coming up with "language access plans" to ensure language barriers don't keep residents from city services.

"A real language access plan," she said. 'One that would allow the departments to plan some goals and achieve them and that they are monitored to insure that the new immigrant friendly Philadelphia is speaking to all of its constituents."

Quinones-Sanchez says Mayor Michael Nutter has demanded such access through executive orders, but her proposed change to the city charter would solidify it for the future.

"We want to embed this, infuse it so that any mayor coming in we are not subjected to just a mayor's executive order but a real policy that is measured every year," she said. 

If approved the change could go before the voters on the spring 2015 ballot.

BLINCYTO® (blinatumomab, Amgen) Efficacy in Phase 2 Study in Relapsed/Refractory Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive B-Cell Precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

BLINCYTO® (blinatumomab, Amgen)  Efficacy in Phase 2 Study in Relapsed/Refractory Philadelphia Chromosome-Positive B-Cell Precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia | Medical marijuana | Scoop.it

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., July 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) today announced the top-line results of a Phase 2 open-label, single-arm, multicenter trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BLINCYTO® (blinatumomab) in adults with relapsed or refractory Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The investigational study showed blinatumomab monotherapy induced a complete remission or complete remission with partial hematological recovery within two cycles of treatment in a clinically meaningful number of patients. Overall safety results from this study were consistent with the known blinatumomab safety profile.

The data will be submitted to a future medical conference and for publication.

 

Philadelphia chromosome-positive B-cell precursor ALL
Approximately one-fourth of adult ALL expresses the oncogenic protein BCR-ABL1 that results from the t (9;22) chromosome translocation known as the Philadelphia chromosome.

Trial Design (NCT02000427)
This study enrolled adult subjects with relapsed or refractory Ph+ B-cell precursor ALL. This was an open-label, single-arm, multicenter study consisting of a screening period, an induction treatment period (two cycles of blinatumomab), a consolidation treatment period (up to three additional cycles of blinatumomab for applicable subjects), and a safety follow-up visit 30 days after treatment. Following the safety follow-up visit, subjects were followed for response duration and survival every 3 months for 18 months or death, whichever occurred first.
