Inoperable Liver Cancer (HCC): Clinical Trial Results With LENVIMA® (lenvatinib)Inoperable Liver Cancer (HCC): Clinical Trial Results With LENVIMA® (lenvatinib)

Inoperable liver cancer and LENVIMA

While you may be overwhelmed right now, there are options that could help treat
your inoperable liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma, or HCC). If you’ve been diagnosed with HCC, your doctor may recommend LENVIMA, an FDA-approved therapy.

LENVIMA was studied in a clinical trial of 954 people with previously untreated HCC that could not be removed with surgery.

In this trial, patients were randomly assigned to receive either LENVIMA or sorafenib.

A clinical study of LENVIMA showed:

The Median Time People With Inoperable Liver Cancer (HCC) Treated With LENVIMA® (lenvatinib) Were Alive Was 14 Months Compared to 12 Months for People Treated With Sorafenib. These Results Showed That Treatment With LENVIMA Was Noninferior (Not Unacceptably Worse) In Comparison to Sorafenib
14 months vs 12 months

The median* time people treated with LENVIMA were alive was 14 months compared to 12 months for people treated with sorafenib. These results showed that treatment with LENVIMA was noninferior (not unacceptably worse) in comparison to sorafenib

*Median: The middle number in a list of numbers arranged from lowest to highest.

41% (194 out of 478 people) treated with LENVIMA had their tumors either partially shrink (partial response) or become undetectable (complete response) compared to 12% (59 out of 476 people) treated with sorafenib
