Hurricane Harvey: Dutch-Texan Research Shows Most Fatalities Occurred Outside Flood Zones

Delft University of Technology

A Dutch-Texan team found that most Houston-area drowning deaths from Hurricane Harvey occurred outside the zones designated by government as being at higher risk of flooding: the 100- and 500-year floodplains. Harvey, one of the costliest storms in US history, hit southeast Texas on 25 August 2017 causing unprecedented flooding and killing dozens. Researchers at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and Rice University in Texas published their results today in the European Geosciences Union journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences.

Pioneering Gene Therapy by UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland Researchers Demonstrates Therapy Can Eliminate Life-Long Need for Transfusions in Patients with Incurable Blood Disorder

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland

Interim results of clinical trials by investigators at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago reveal that a majority of the 22 patients in two Phase 1/2 studies followed for two years or longer remained free from transfusions. The results of the trials “Gene Therapy in Patients with Transfusion-Dependentβ-Thalassemia,” are published today in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). The results are from two separate, two-year clinical studies using LentiGlobin® gene therapy to stop or reduce chronic blood transfusions in patients with transfusion-dependent β-thalassemia (TDT).
