ZURICH (Reuters) – Swiss drugmaker Roche on Friday said its immunotherapy Tecentriq combined with its Avastin medicine helped people with the most common form of liver cancer to live longer than with an older drug from Germany’s Bayer.

Median overall survival for patients getting Tecentriq and Avastin had not been reached but exceeded the 13.2 months of those on Bayer’s drug, Roche said.
