FDA approves Roche immunotherapy cocktail in liver cancer

The immunotherapy Tecentriq in combination with drug Avastin will give speedy access to cancer patients
Swiss drugmaker Roche said that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved its immunotherapy Tecentriq in combination with its drug Avastin for the most common kind of liver cancer.
The Tecentriq-Avastin mix for unresectable or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma was approved under the FDA’s Real-Time Oncology Review pilot and Project Orbis initiative aimed at speedier access for patients, Roche said. 
The American Cancer Society estimated that more than 42,000 Americans will be diagnosed with liver cancer this year.
