Tutor flees cycle path attacker

first_imgA college lecturer has become the third victim to be attacked on the cycle path between Ferry Road and Parks Road, provoking OUSU to pass a motion concerning the safety of the path.The lecturer was attacked and robbed on the same cycle path where Japanese postgrad Kentaro Ikeda suffered severe head injuries in a brutal attack this July.The victim, who wished to remain anonymous, spoke of how he “was pushed off my bicycle by a lone individual. I was told to hand over money, kicked, punched, and threatened in various ways.“As an erstwhile cross-country runner I decided – perhaps rashly – to make a run for the Marston end of the path, but was hampered by the effects of the fall from the bike. My attacker was also fairly swift of foot, pursued me, and after about fifty yards I realised that I was not managing to put enough distance between myself and him.“At that stage I decided to ditch the bag, and my pursuer then lost interest in maintaining the chase.” He continued, “I reported the incident to the police who are investigating.“I had always thought that the path would be safe as it is well-lit and heavily used. I now consider alternative routes after dark if the path looks deserted, and would advise others to do the same. I feel extremely lucky to have come away with just a few minor cuts and bruises.”The lecturer added that he had since recovered what he lost to the mugger. His bag, which had contained nothing but written work to mark, was later found near to where he had abandoned it by a member of the public and traced back to the lecturer’s college.The bike meanwhile was spotted on Cowley Road a week later, being sold in a second hand shop. The owner claimed that the bike had been found abandoned in Summertown and had been given to him by a friend.The police were aware of the incident, and have issued an appeal for witnesses, describing the perpetrator as a black male, of slim build, aged between 20-25, and wearing dark clothes. The mugging came in the same week as the two men accused of attacking Kentaro Ikeda in the same area have pleaded not guilty to charges of robbery and assault.A motion was passed in OUSU council on Friday mandating the Vice President for Charities and Community, Jack Wellby, to pressure the relevant authorities to improve lighting and CCTV coverage on the path.He said, “I feel as though the County Council have been far too slow to improve lighting on what is a dangerous path and that their ‘feasibility study’ is an unacceptable delaying tactic.“I think that improvements to the lighting are the absolute minimum and that CCTV should be installed strategically along the path or at the entrances. In future the county council needs to be quicker to react to such incidents and ideally be proactive in improving the safety of dangerous areas in Oxford.”OUSU are not the only group lobbying for improvements to the cycle path. A petition started in August by a resident of nearby Croft Road, gathered nearly 700 signatures, demanding more lighting to protect the many people who use the path as a route to the city centre.However, nothing has yet been done about the dangerous path. The North East Area Council have ‘approved in principle’ improved lighting but are waiting for the results of a cost feasibility study, and it is not clear how long this will take.The Oxford University Estates Directorate has so already ruled out installing CCTV in strategic points along the path on the grounds of cost.last_img read more

FDA recalls montelukast tablets by Camber Pharmaceuticals due to drug mixup

first_img Complete and submit the report online at www.fda.gov/medwatch/report.htm; or Download and complete the form, then submit it via fax at 1-800-FDA-0178. Label: Montelukast Sodium Tablets 10 mg 30 ct Lot number: MON17384 Expiration date: 12/31/2019 NDC: 31722-726-30 Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Sep 3 2018The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers and health care professionals about a voluntary recall of one lot of Montelukast Sodium Tablets – lot number MON17384, expiration 12/31/2019 – by Camber Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Piscataway, N.J. Sealed bottles labeled as montelukast sodium tablets, 10 milligram, 30-count bottle from Camber were found to instead contain 90 tablets of Losartan Potassium Tablets, 50 mg.This tablet mix-up may pose a safety risk as taking losartan tablets when not prescribed has the potential to cause renal dysfunction, elevated potassium levels and low blood pressure. This risk is especially high for pregnant women taking the allergy and asthma medication montelukast because losartan, which is indicated to treat high blood pressure, could harm or kill the fetus. The FDA recommends that consumers who have this recalled product should contact their health care provider or pharmacist immediately.This recall is not related to the recent valsartan recalls that were due to an impurity, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).”We want to ensure that patients who take montelukast are aware of this recall due to the serious risks associated with taking losartan in its place,” said Donald D. Ashley J.D., director of the office of compliance in the FDA’s center for drug evaluation and research. “Patients who take prescription drugs expect and deserve to have the medication their doctor prescribed.”Montelukast is used to prevent wheezing, difficulty breathing, chest tightness and coughing caused by asthma. It is also used to prevent bronchospasm (breathing difficulties) during exercise and to treat the symptoms of seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis. Montelukast is in a class of medications called leukotriene receptor antagonists (LTRAs) which work by blocking the action of substances in the body that cause the symptoms of asthma and allergic rhinitis.Related StoriesStroke should be treated 15 minutes earlier to save lives, study suggestsCutting around 300 calories a day protects the heart even in svelte adultsNew research links “broken heart syndrome” to cancerLosartan is often used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Losartan is also used to decrease the risk of stroke in people who have high blood pressure and a heart condition called left ventricular hypertrophy (enlargement of the walls of the left side of the heart).Patients should contact their health care provider or pharmacist to determine if their medicine has been recalled. Patients should also look at the drug name and company name on the label of their prescription bottle. If the information is not on the bottle, patients should contact the pharmacy that dispensed the medicine.Montelukast sodium tablets are beige, rounded square-shaped, film coated tablets that are imprinted with “I” on one side and “114” on the reverse. Losartan tablets are white and oval-shaped with the letter “I” imprinted on one side and the number “5” imprinted on the reverse.Recalled lots of montelukast sodium tablets, USP 10mg have the following information: To date, Camber has not received adverse event reports associated with this recall. The FDA encourages health care professionals and consumers to report adverse events to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program: Source:https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm619174.htmlast_img read more
