• Robotic liver resection safe, effective for hepatocellular carcinoma

    11 days ago - By Healio

    Robotic liver dissection appeared safe and effective compared with open liver resection among patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, according to study results published in JAMA Surgery.
    The findings also showed the robotic approach may reduce morbidity, potentially enabling treatment for patients who would not be able to receive it due to risk for liver decompensation, researchers concluded.
    Data are lacking on long-term outcomes of robotic surgery among patients with HCC, according to Fabrizio Di Benedetto, MD, PhD, researcher in the hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery and liver...

    Vumerity effective over 96 weeks in patients with relapsing-remitting MS

    12 days ago - By Healio

    Results from the EVOLVE-MS-1 study show Vumerity was effective and well-tolerated over 96 weeks in patients with relapsing-remitting MS compared with dimethyl fumarate, according to a presentation at ECTRIMS 2022.
    Diroximel fumarate , an oral fumarate for relapsing-remitting MS, has the same active metabolite as dimethyl fumarate and a similar efficacy and safety profile. However, diroximel fumarate has better gastrointestinal tolerability, according to the study.
    Researchers evaluated the safety and efficacy of DRF in adults with relapsing-remitting MS in the
