De Blasio announces ‘long-term’ investment in bus transportation for NYC kids

NEW YORK — The city says it’s investing in a partnership with a company providing school buses in an effort to provide “greater stability, flexibility and oversight” in transportation for New York’s schoolchildren.

This comes on the heels of the city establishing a not-for-profit to oversee school bus inventory and employees called NYCSBUS. They’re partnering with Reliant Transportation, who already specializes in busing for special education students and runs around 950 busing routes for the city’s Department of Education each year. NYCSBUS “will offer employment to the current Reliant workforce and work with labor partners to develop acceptable collective bargaining agreement terms to prevent any workforce disruption.”

“We are doing everything we can to guarantee safe, fast, and reliable bus service for the students who need it most,” said Mayor de Blasio in a statement. “This agreement delivers on that promise and makes a lasting investment in our school communities

Kuur Therapeutics Announces Publication of Interim Phase 1 Data for CAR-NKT Cell Therapy KUR-501 in Nature Medicine

Kuur Therapeutics, a leader in the development of off-the-shelf CAR-NKT cell immunotherapies for the treatment of solid and hematological malignancies, today announced the publication in Nature Medicine of interim findings from its ongoing phase 1 GINAKIT2 clinical trial collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital, in high risk relapsed refractory (R/R) patients with neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer.

The interim results demonstrated that expressing the CAR with interlukin-15 (IL-15), a natural protein that supports NKT survival, enhanced the tumor-fighting capabilities and in vivo persistence of autologous NKT cells. Two of three patients studied showed tumor reduction following CAR-NKT infusion: one classified as stable disease and the other as a partial response. Imaging revealed a dramatic reduction in the size and metabolic activity of bone metastases in the patient with the partial response. CAR-NKT cells demonstrated a favorable safety profile and localized to the site of the
