Today's Globe: Fernald, herbicides, diabetes drug warnings, heart-failure drug
US District Judge Joseph L. Tauro (left) yesterday halted the state's plan to close the Fernald Development Center in Waltham, ruling that the profoundly mentally retarded residents who have lived there for decades must be given the opportunity to stay.
A dozen lawmakers have allied themselves with a coalition of environmental groups to protest the use of herbicides to control vegetation along state roadways.
The diabetes drugs Avandia and Actos will be labeled with severe warnings about a risk of heart failure to some patients, health officials said yesterday.
Drug maker Biogen Idec Inc. said yesterday its midstage study of the drug Adentri showed positive results in heart-failure patients.
