Quotes

"The data being presented at this year's ESMO showcases the wealth of evidence to support lenvatinib in the treatment of radioiodine-refractory differentiated thyroid cancer. We remain committed to understanding more about the potential role of lenvatinib in thyroid cancer and we are dedicated to the discovery, development and production of innovative oncology therapies that can make a difference to the lives of patients and their families" commented Gary Hendler, President & CEO Eisai EMEA and President, Eisai Oncology Global Business Unit
"In our study, benefits of acupuncture were exclusively attributed to incidental effects, given the lack of significant differences between active acupuncture and sham treatment. Continuous subjective measures, such as pain and self-reported physical function, as used in our study, are particularly subject to placebo responses."
"Individual transplant centers evaluate donors on a case-by-case basis and assess the risk and make the best match of donor and recipient. Based on our results, it appears that if centers wanted to expand their individual criteria for donation, they could successfully expand their donor pool."
"Although it is always challenging to change behavior/lifestyle, the time before and during pregnancy could represent an opportunity to change diet and lifestyle as these"
