Objective response to first-line systemic therapy with lenvatinib or sorafenib independently predicts overall survival (OS) in individuals with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), as shown by the subanalysis of the REFLECT study.
START-FIT, a prospective, single-arm, phase II trial, has foundsequential transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) followed by anti–PD-L1 treatment with avelumab to be a promising strategy for making patients with locally advanced unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) amenable to curative treatment.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) screening strategies, particularly vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTE) and fibrosis-4 (FIB-4), are a cost-effective approach to reduce disease burden among type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients in Singapore, according to a study.
In patients with intermediate or advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), combining transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) with apatinib led to improvement in progression-free survival (PFS), according to a recent study from China.
In individuals with Wilson disease (WD), a rare disease of copper metabolism, ALXN1840 led to significantly greater copper mobilization compared with standard of care (SoC), findings from a rater-blinded phase III study have shown.
Treatment with maralixibat significantly reduced the severity of pruritus in children with progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis (PFIC) in the MARCH-PFIC* study presented at The Liver Meeting 2022.
Second harmonic generation/two-photon excitation fluorescence (SHG/TPEF) microscopy with artificial intelligence (AI) analyses reveals novel facets of treatment-induced fibrosis regression in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which are not normally captured by existing staging systems, reports a study.
Treatment with odevixibat, a potent, selective IBAT* inhibitor, significantly improved pruritus and reduced serum bile acid levels in children with Alagille syndrome (ALGS), according to the ASSERT** trial presented at The Liver Meeting 2022.
Treatment with the selective THR-β* agonist resmetirom for 52 weeks was well-tolerated and effective in reducing markers of NASH** fibrosis in a well-compensated Child-Pugh (CP)-A NASH population, a phase III trial has shown.
