National Press Club to Hold Press Conference Regarding Status of Detained Press Freedom Award Winner Emilio Gutierrez, Monday, Dec. 11 @1PM

10 12 2017

WASHINGTON, Dec. 10, 2017 -- The National Press Club will hold a press conference Monday, Dec. 11 at 1:00 p.m. regarding the recent detainment of Mexican journalist Emilio Gutierrez by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. The press conference will take place in the club's First Amendment Lounge. Just two months after appearing at the National Press Club to accept the John Aubuchon Press Freedom Award on behalf of Mexico's besieged journalists, Gutierrez on Thursday found himself on the verge of deportation and, later, removed to a detention facility in the remote west Texas town of Sierra Blanca. Eduardo Beckett, an attorney representing Gutierrez, said immigration officials in El Paso handcuffed the reporter when he arrived for a scheduled appointment and refused to wait for a response from the U.S. Board of Immigration Appeals. The BIA's phone call granting the stay, 10 minutes later, prevented the deportation. Afterwards, however, Beckett was unable...

CAR T-Cell Therapies Drive Outcomes in Lymphoma, Myeloma

10 12 2017

ATLANTA, Dec. 10, 2017 -- For people with certain types of aggressive, refractory blood cancers, treatment options are woefully limited. But three studies being presented today at the 59th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta spotlight the emerging role played by chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapies in helping individuals mount a clinical response and, in some cases, achieve durable remission. These therapies are designed by harvesting a patient's own T-cells (the immune system's primary cancer-killing cells), reengineering them to target specific proteins on the surface of leukemia and lymphoma cells, and reintroducing the modified T-cells back into the patient's immune system. "It is encouraging that the data continue to be so strong and suggest that CAR-T therapies for B-cell malignancies are here to stay," said press briefing moderator, Renier J. Brentjens, MD, PhD, medical oncologist and director of cellular...
