Hepatocellular carcinoma and Folfox by Mark Levin Posted Thu 16 Dec 2010 6:04am A randomized study of Folfox was presented in the 2010 ASCO meeting. When compared with doxorubicin after 266 events, the FOLFOX4 regimen significantly improved median progression-free survival from 1.77 to 2.93 months (P = .0002) in the EACH trial. Overall survival also improved from 4.97 to 6.40 months, although the difference failed to re ... Read on »
