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

2017-09-10

“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

Instacart. When we think of unicorns, we usually think of the tech industry, but there are some entrepreneurs out there who are disrupting retail. One of my favorites – and a company I use on a weekly basis – is Instacart. Founder Apoorva Mehta, who’s only 30, had over 20 failed startups before he launched Instacart. I’m glad he succeeded, because the app helps me manage my busy life and still get healthy food on the table almost every night. ­-Nicole M. Coomber, lecturer of management and organization. The Honest Company. There’s some debate as to whether celebrity Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company, is really worth $1 billion, but as far as bringing together style and function, it’s a winner with a lot of moms I know. The Honest Company is a “wellness” brand, but its core business is a subscription service...

U.S. Law: Iranian Revolutionary Guards are Terrorists

2017-08-05

By Contributing Author Cameron Keyani That choice should be easy and the result for the current regime in Iran – well, devastating.” — Cameron Keyani WASHINGTON, DC, USA, August 5, 2017 — Many American observers believe that the Iranian Revolution ended in 1979. For the Ayatollahs, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), this was when the Revolution began. For them, the revolution was less about regime change than about using the country and its resources to shape the world in the image of their fundamentalist ideology. To the Ayatollahs of Iran, revolution is not a finite political event, but a pretext for their daily destabilizing campaigns for regional hegemony. Similarly, the un-revolutionary or non-Islamic label is used to justify their brutal suppression of anyone in Iran who steps out against the regime or engages in...
