Among the earnings stories for Tuesday, May 8, from AP Business News:

— Drug developer Curis Inc. said that it turned a first-quarter profit after federal regulators approved its skin cancer treatment Erivedge early in the period.

— Seattle Genetics Inc. said it took a smaller loss in the first quarter after launching its cancer drug Adcetris. Its revenue for the quarter, however, came in below Wall Street forecasts and its shares dropped 7 percent in extended trading.
