Isolated hepatic perfusion effective for isolated uveal melanoma liver metastases
Source: Healio, May 2023
- The regional treatment conferred a significantly higher overall response rate than best alternative care.
- Median PFS also favored the isolated hepatic perfusion group.
Isolated hepatic perfusion conferred superior overall response rates and longer PFS than best alternative care among previously untreated patients with isolated liver metastases from primary uveal melanoma according to study results.
The randomized phase 3 trial findings, published in Journal of Clinical Oncology, also showed isolated hepatic perfusion had a manageable toxicity profile.
