UCLA research helps expand use of drug to treat liver cancer

UCLA researchers helped test the first drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat liver cancer in 10 years. They found through clinical trials that the drug, regorafenib, increased overall liver cancer patient survival period from a median of 7.8 months to 10.6 months. Read more...
