Today, millions of people live with chronic liver diseases such as fibrosis and cirrhosis. But many of these people have no idea these conditions put them at increased risk of liver cancer.
That’s why pharmaceutical industry innovator Roche launched the One Liver program – an initiative aimed at tackling this problem head on. Every day, its expert teams work to understand liver disease and the challenges patients face.
The program brings together the collective knowledge and expertise of academic, medical, and industry partners across Asia, Africa, and Europe. Its ultimate goal is to disrupt disease trajectories and to cure liver cancer altogether.
Now, Roche is planning to present data showing that one of its immunotherapy combinations improves overall survival in patients with a type of liver cancer.
The analysis from the study showed that after an 8.6 month follow-up period, the risk of death reduced by a huge 42%.
It’s wins like this that keep teams at Roche focussed on finding new medicines that help patients live longer, better lives.
Founded in Switzerland in 1896, Roche is one of the world’s largest biotech companies, and is recognised as a leading provider of diagnostics and a global supplier of transformative innovative solutions across major disease areas.
