The majority of patients with indolent follicular lymphoma do well with observation and after first-line treatment, but approximately 20% experience disease progression within 2 years of their initial treatment, which is associated with a 50% risk of dying within 5 years. Subsequently, this is an area of unmet need but one in which considerable progress is being made.

After years of stagnation, the paradigm for treating patients with unresectable intermediate-stage or advanced hepatocellular carcinoma is starting to change as a result of novel strategies and evolving views of appropriate patient populations for systemic therapies.
January 11th 2021
Although rates of hepatocellular carcinoma incidence started to plateau in 2013, many cases continue to be diagnosed at more advanced stages, especially in patients without liver disease.

In 1941, Charles Brenton Huggins, MD, observed that prostate cancer could be controlled by hormone-directed treatments, a discovery for which he was awarded half the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1966.
October 28th 2016
Patients with advanced lymphoid malignancies have had few treatment options, particularly those with extensive, refractory disease. Allogeneic or autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been one life-prolonging and potentially curative option for these patients, but these procedures are associated with various toxicities and are not appropriate for all patients, with older adults and those with great- er disease burden often excluded as candidates.
September 15th 2016
Although lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States and 5-year survival rates are low at 17.8%, the grim picture for this tumor type is starting to shift to a more hopeful one as its biology is becoming better understood, facilitating treatment selection and providing researchers with new therapeutic targets.
September 2nd 2016
Molecular testing for colorectal cancer continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Biomarkers already have the potential to predict outcomes and better target therapies, with the eventual goal to completely personalize treatments based on the patient’s individual biomarker profile and other tumor markers.
