(Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned against the use of homeopathic teething tablets and gels on Friday, citing potential risks to infants and children and prompting CVS Health Corp Inc to withdraw the products. The FDA is currently testing samples of the products and analyzing reports linking them to seizures in infants and children since 2010, the health regulator said in a statement. Homeopathic teething tablets and gels are sold in retail stores and online and are distributed by companies including both CVS and Hyland.

California Governor Jerry Brown speaks on the third day of the Democratic National Convention in PhiladelphiaCalifornia Governor Jerry Brown on Friday signed legislation to broaden the state's legal definition of rape and mandate prison if the victim was unconscious, following a furor over a Stanford University sexual assault case. Lawmakers passed the two bills in response to a six-month sentence a Northern California judge this year gave Brock Turner, a former swimmer convicted in the sexual assault of an unconscious woman at the elite university, in a case that drew widespread condemnation. The sentence, which was lighter than prison terms given at many U.S. sexual assault trials, generated harsh scrutiny after the online publication of a harrowing statement the victim gave in court describing the devastating effects of the assault.


(Reuters) - A court ruled in Depomed Inc's favor in a patent dispute over its opioid drug, Nucynta, a decision that could help pave the way for the drug maker to explore a sale. Sources told Reuters this month that Depomed was preparing to explore a sale and talks with potential buyers are expected to start shortly after a ruling on Nucynta, the company's biggest drug. Activist investor Starboard Value LP in April called on Depomed to explore a sale after disclosing a stake of close to 10 percent.
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Women with early-stage breast cancer may have fewer treatment complications and lower costs when they don’t get a mastectomy followed by reconstructive surgery, a U.S. study suggests. In recent years, reconstruction following a mastectomy has become more widely available, contributing to a sharp increase in the number of women who opt for this treatment even when less aggressive alternatives may be just as effective, researchers note in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. With early-stage tumors that haven’t spread to distant parts of the body, survival odds are similar for a mastectomy or a lumpectomy paired with radiation, previous studies have found.
