Today's Globe: meningitis death, banked blood, heart-imaging agents, Watson's words, Bruce Statham
A first-year Bentley College student died from bacterial meningitis in New York yesterday, Bentley officials said.
Much of the stored blood given to millions of people every year may lack a component vital for it to deliver oxygen to the tissues.
Regulators will alert doctors about reports of deaths and serious reactions following the use of certain imaging agents to help diagnose heart problems, Food and Drug Administration officials said yesterday.
James D. Watson, one of the most important scientists of the post-World War II era best known for teaming with Francis Crick to discover the structure of DNA, intricately details his stellar career in science is in "Avoid Boring People."
Bruce Statham (right, with his family: Annie, Tom, and his wife, Lee), who lent his voice to fund-raising efforts for research, and to help students at Harvard Medical School understand what it was like to live with ALS, died Thursday at Brigham and Women's Hospital of complications from the disease. He was 39 and had lived in Milton.
