The approval for Tafinlar and Mekinist combination therapy was based on a Phase 2 international, multicenter, 3-cohort, non-randomized, non-comparative, open-label trial (Study BRF113928) in patients with locally confirmed stage IV NSCLC with BRAF V600E mutation.
The approval was supported by three prospective studies that showed aminolevulinic acid-induced fluorescence was highly predictive for visualizing malignant tissue as verified by histopathology of biopsied fluorescent tissue.
Combining cholesterol uptake capacity with known cardiovascular disease risk factors also significantly improved the power of those factors to predict patients who would re-develop heart disease.
A paper-based test was created which requires a small sample of blood (10mcL). If the ST2 antigen is present in the sample, a blue dot appears on the strip; if the BNP antigen is present in the sample, then a green dot appears.
Some of these studies evaluated GBCA use for durations >1 year and showed that gadolinium is retained in organs such as the brain, bones, and skin.
Certain lead tests manufactured by Magellan Diagnostics may have provided inaccurate results to patients, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The ipsogen JAK2 RGQ PCR Kit test detected polycythemia vera with 94.6% sensitivity and 98.1% specificity, in the study the approval was based on.
While the GHR tests may provide genetic risk information, they cannot determine a person's overall risk for developing a disease, as other factors beyond genetics (ie, environment, lifestyle) may also influence risk.
Overall, the combined 5 tests allowed a broader risk prediction to include the likelihood of heart failure and atrial fibrillation, and also showed to be a better predictor of heart attack and stroke vs. currently recommended strategies.
Most studies supporting ketamine's benefit assessed efficacy during the first week following a single infusion; emerging studies indicate that repeated dosing may extend the efficacy for at least several weeks.

Measuring blood neurofilament light chain (NfL) levels may help distinguish Parkinson's disease (PD) from atypical parkinsonian disorders (APD), according to a study published onlinein Neurology.
Many emergency physicians are performing low-value services, despite patients being deemed low-risk. The findings come from a cross-sectional sample survey of nearly 800 emergency physicians.
The Food and Drug Administration has approved the marketing of the Seeker System (Baebies, Inc.) for the screening of four rare lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) in newborns.
