A small study of Amgen Inc's Lumakras drug combined with immunotherapy found it helped 29% of advanced lung cancer patients, but liver toxicity was high and further study is needed, the company said ahead of the data presentation on Sunday at the World Conference on Lung Cancer in Vienna. Nearly all of the 58 trial patients treated with the highest dose of genetic-mutation targeting Lumakras experienced elevated liver enzyme levels, and about 20% given the lowest dose saw significant liver toxicity, researchers said.

John Oliver calls out Marjorie Taylor Greene for 'obvious dog whistle bigotry' in monkeypox comments
Covering the rapidly spreading monkeypox virus, on Last Week Tonight With John Oliver Sunday, Oliver called out Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for comments she’s recently made about the disease, which to this point has been most prevalent in the LGBTQ community. “Of course monkeypox is a threat to some people in our population, but we know what causes it, and that’s pretty much, um — it’s basically a sexually transmitted disease, so it’s not a threat to most of the population,” Greene said. “And so it’s not a global pandemic. It’s really not. And people just have to laugh at it, mock it and reject it. So I think it’s another scam.” “Okay, obviously that is ridiculous,” Oliver said in response. “If the way to get rid of something awful was for people to laugh at it and mock it, that woman clearly wouldn’t be in Congress, and yet, here we all are.” Oliver also went after Greene for her insistence that monkeypox is strictly an LGBTQ issue, including a tweet she posted the he sees as a homophobic dog whistle for conservatives. “Greene also tweeted, ‘If monkeypox is a sexually transmitted disease, why are kids getting it?’ in an act of obvious dog whistle bigotry, suggesting gay people are a danger to children,” Oliver said, “when what’s clearly an actual danger to children is the QAnon congresswoman who once tweeted, ‘The kids at Uvalde needed JR-15s.’”
