Individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) may be at risk of developing gastric cancer even after receiving Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication therapy, demonstrated a study from Hong Kong.
A recent study involving 99 patients in Hong Kong demonstrated that arsenic trioxide (As2O3), used as part of induction and maintenance treatment for newly diagnosed acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL), is safe and highly effective, achieving 100 percent complete response (CR), 3-year leukaemia-free survival (LFS) and 3-year overall survival (OS) rates.
The combination of TAS-118 and oxaliplatin led to significantly greater survival compared with the S-1 and cisplatin combination in patients with metastatic or recurrent HER2-negative gastric cancer, the phase III SOLAR* study showed.
Reducing the dose of regorafenib did little to affect the overall tolerability of the drug in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), according to the phase II REARRANGE* trial presented at ESMO GI 2019.
A first-in-class immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) antibody targeting CD47 has demonstrated durable responses when used in combination with rituximab in patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) or indolent lymphoma.
