In a post-hoc analysis, researchers assessed the effects of lenvatinib compared with sorafenib on health-related quality of life in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
Statin use was linked to a lower risk for incident cancer and cancer-related mortality in heart failure.
Researchers aimed to validate use of the NCYA score and its incorporation of AFP-R in the selection of patients for liver transplant due to HCC recurrence.
Researchers compared the cost-effectiveness of atezolizumab plus bevacizumab vs sorafenib for patients with unresectable or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma.
While pediatric liver tumors remain rare, their diagnosis and treatment requires a systematic approach from a multi-professional team of clinicians.
Investigators conducted an international, multicenter meta-analysis to assess HCC recurrence risk in patients treated with DAAs.
The approval was based on data from the LEGACY study, a single-arm, retrospective trial that evaluated treatment with TheraSphere Y90 glass microspheres in 162 patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma.
There is a need for interventions to increase HCC surveillance in patients with cirrhosis due to a high proportion of late-stage detection.
