Intraperitoneal therapy with paclitaxel and cisplatin does not result in longer progression-free or overall survival in the adjuvant setting among patients with stage III ovarian cancer as compared with dose-dense paclitaxel and carboplatin, results of a study have shown. In addition, tolerability appears to have decreased with intraperitoneal therapy.
In the treatment of cytokine storm syndrome due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), administering tocilizumab via the intravenous (IV) route appears to be more effective than subcutaneous (SC) therapy, leading to earlier symptom improvement and better survival, according to a study.
