Lenvatinib Delays Deterioration in Certain Domains of Quality of Life in Patients with Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma as Compared to Sorafenib in Phase 3 REFLECT Study


“In the REFLECT study, health-related quality of life scores favored lenvatinib in various areas that have an impact on patients’ daily lives, such as nutrition, diarrhea and pain,” said Prof. Arndt Vogel, MD, Clinic of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endocrinology, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany, and investigator of the study. “The finding that lenvatinib delayed the worsening of several quality of life domains for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma when compared with sorafenib could be meaningful.”  The secondary endpoint of HRQOL was assessed using the EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire and the HCC-specific module (EORTC QLQ-HCC18). Treatment with lenvatinib resulted in a longer median time to delay in worsening in the QLQ-C30 domains of role function (2.0 months vs 1.9 months; nominal p=0.0098), pain (2.0 months vs 1.8 months; nominal p=0.006) and diarrhea (4.6 months vs 2.7 months; nominal p

Rossi Heads Honda Sweep at Watkins Glen


Starting from the pole, Rossi was the driver to beat throughout the 60-lap event, despite having to make an extra pit stop when he failed to receive a full load of fuel during his first scheduled service, due to an issue with his pit equipment.  In addition, the threat of rain and a pair of early-race caution flags led to a half-dozen cars going “off sequence” with their pit strategies, including the Chip Ganassi Racing Honda of Max Chilton. Fortunately, the second caution enabled Rossi to close the gap to the leaders, and effectively took him off sequence, as well.  Once in the lead group, Rossi was both able to conserve fuel (running stints of 18 and 17 laps, respectively), and still led a race-high 32 laps. For his part, Dixon was also strong throughout the Watkins Glen weekend, qualifying second and running down all of the off-sequence drivers to climb from seventh back to second in an impressive run from between Laps 34-40.  Dixon closed on leader Rossi in the...
