The investment marks a change in the company's strategy. Four years ago. Bristol said it would use its East Syracuse facility to make only small quantities of drugs to be used in clinical trials. Now, it plans to use the facilities to make larger quantities of the main ingredient of abatacept, a new drug to treat rheumatoid arthritis. The company applied in December for For home delivery, U.S. Food and Drug Administration ap- proval to sell abatacept. The FDA must de- cide if the drug is safe and effective, and in- spect the facilities where it will be made. The East Syracuse campus also makes small quantities of two other drugs current- ly in clinical trials one for cancer and the other to prevent organ transplant rejec- tion.

In the background is Mark Wright. Winter's Worst It was a day to stay inside in Central New York and across much of the Northeast. With temperatures around zero degrees and winds hitting 25 mph, it felt like minus 44 de- grees across our region on Saturday. And the snow just kept coming all day, with more than a foot expected in many places by today. Drivers struggled in the near-blizzard con- ditions, but more than fans made it to the Carrier Dome for the SU-West Virginia men's basketball game. It wasn't any better across the Northeast. The worst storm of the season roared in from the Midwest and turned into a classic nor'easter. New York City was expecting up to 18 inches. New England residents braced for an over- night wallop expected to cause coastal flood- ing and power outages and dump 2 feet or more of snow.
