Push is on to tailor cancer care to tumor's genes

WASHINGTON - The days of one-size-fits-all cancer treatment are numbered: A rush of new research is pointing the way to tailor chemotherapy and other care to what's written in your tumor's genes.

Everyone with advanced colon cancer now is supposed to get a genetic test before taking two of the leading treatments. It's a major change adopted by oncologists last month after studies found that those pricey drugs, Erbitux and Vectibix, won't work in 40 percent of patients.

'Friday the 13th' nails No. 1 box office spot with $42.2M

LOS ANGELES - "Friday the 13th" had all the luck as the remake of the 1980 slasher flick opened with $42.2 million, putting blood and guts ahead of hearts over Valentine's Day weekend.

That was a record for the horror genre, topping the $39.1 million debut for 2004's "The Grudge." Accounting for today's higher admission prices, "The Grudge" sold slightly more tickets, however.

Kenseth wins rain-shortened Daytona 500

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Matt Kenseth drove from the back of the field to take the Daytona 500 lead minutes before the sky opened up, handing the former series champion his first victory in NASCAR's version of the Super Bowl.

Coming off one of the worst seasons of his career, Kenseth's bad luck followed him into Daytona International Speedway. He wrecked his primary car, had to go to a backup and started Sunday's race in last place.

Investigator: Plane fell flat onto Buffalo house

CLARENCE, N.Y. - Continental Connection Flight 3407's yoke was shaking as the plane fought to stay aloft, its deicing mechanisms pulsing to crack ice away.

The commuter plane was approaching a runway at Buffalo Niagara International Airport when its safety systems warned pilot Capt. Marvin Renslow that the plane was perilously close to losing lift and falling from the sky. The stick automatically pushed forward, the plane's nose dropping in a last-minute corrective measure before it belly-flopped onto a house in a fireball - landing with its nose pointed away from the runway.

The recovery plan: A national jolt to economy

WASHINGTON - America is bringing shock and awe to the home front, using dollars instead of bombs.

Officials: Plane crew saw ice before crash

BUFFALO, New York - The crew of the commuter plane that crashed into a suburban Buffalo, New York, house, killing all 49 people aboard and one person on the ground, noticed significant ice buildup on the wings and windshield just before the aircraft began pitching and rolling violently, investigators said Friday.

Officials stopped short of saying the ice buildup caused Thursday night's crash and stressed that nothing has been ruled out. But ice on the wings can interfere catastrophically with an aircraft's handling and has been blamed for a number of major air disasters over the years.
