For the first time, the panel said there may be a small benefit for adults in their 40s who have no bleeding risks. For those in their 50s, the panel softened advice and said evidence of benefit is less clear....

Impressive results in the phase II clinical trial moved the drug combination closer to filling the long-standing void for a second-line mesothelioma treatment. The Lancet Oncology recently published results of the study, which was conducted in ...
