Other clinical trials

Interventional trials
Determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments.
Observational trials
Address health issues in large groups of people or populations in natural settings.
Participants are currently being recruited and enrolled.
Active, not recruiting
Study is ongoing (i.e., patients are being treated or examined), but enrollment has completed.
Not yet recruiting
Participants are not yet being recruited or enrolled.
Enrolling by invitation
Participants are being (or will be) selected from a predetermined population.
The study has concluded normally; participants are no longer being examined or treated (i.e., last patient's last visit has occurred).
Study halted prematurely, prior to enrollment of first participant.
Recruiting or enrolling participants has halted prematurely but potentially will resume.
Recruiting or enrolling participants has halted prematurely and will not resume; participants are no longer being examined or treated.

The primary objective of this phase I dose escalation study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose of TH-302 when administered with doxorubicin via trans-arterial chemo-embolization (TACE) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who are not transplant candidates and have unresectable disease. HCC is the second leading cause of worldwide cancer death and is generally incurable without liver transplant. TACE can convert about 40% of these patients to transplant candidates. Additionally, in non-transplant HCC patients, TACE confers statistical improvements in overall survival. Selective HCC arterial catheterization during TACE allows for the delivery of concentrated drugs to the liver tumor but the optimal TACE chemotherapy regimen has not yet been determined. TH-302 is a hypoxia inducible agent that can be activated in the hypoxic environment induced by TACE.

TACE is frequently offered to patients with baseline hepatic dysfunction with the purpose of diminishing hepatic tumor burden while patients await transplantation. Without this therapeutic measure, disease may progress beyond UNOS T2 criteria required for organ allocation. The purpose of the study is to determine whether transarterial chemoembolization using doxorubicin-eluting beads (DEB-TACE) can be used safely and effectively to treat patients with liver-only hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and baseline hepatic dysfunction.

Assessment of safety and tolerability of ADI-PEG 20 in combination with sorafenib in advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC).
Sponsor: Polaris Group
Study type: Interventional
November 2014 - January 2016
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and tolerability of LY2157299 when combined with sorafenib in Japanese hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) participants.

October 2014 -
This is an open label, multi-center, phase II study of BBI503 administered to adult patients with advanced hepatobiliary cancer who have exhausted all currently approved standard anti-cancer treatment options. BBI503 will be administered orally, daily, in continuous 28-day cycles at a dose of 300 mg once daily. Cycles will be repeated until patients are no longer clinically benefiting from therapy. Safety, efficacy and tolerability of BBI503 will be assessed for the duration of study treatment.

Phase III, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, aimed to seek the therapeutic benefit of V5 subjects with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. The results will be compared to placebo. The trial duration is 3 months and will consist of one stage with baseline laboratory evaluation including AFP levels with follow-up at monthly intervals. In addition pre-entry abdominal CT scan and end-study CT scan will be preformed. The clinical evaluation will be quantified according to special performance questionnaire.

This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in subjects with advanced HCC and CPB cirrhosis whose disease has progressed while taking 1 prior systemic drug therapy for HCC.

The purpose of this research is to compare short-term and long-term efficacy of laparoscopic hepatectomy and radiofrequency ablation in the Treatment of small hepatocellular carcinoma, and provide the evidence for the choice of surgical method from the pathology and cytology.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third leading death cancer in the world. It is important to explore a safe and effective therapy for early-stage HCC. Previous studies reported that radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has higher efficacy and is associated with fewer complications and shorter hospital stays than hepatic resection (HR) for early-stage HCC. However, meta-analysis and systematic review found that RFA is associated with higher recurrence rate and lower long-term overall survival.

Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is considered the gold standard for treating intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, any treatment guidelines do not specify the criteria for repeating TACE.The study,conducted in Europe ,recently published in the journal of Hepatology shows the ART score of >=2.5 prior the second TACE identifies patients with a dismal prognosis who may not profit from further TACE sessions. However,in clinical practice,we also found some patients who showed TACE-resistant at the beginning of treatment may access to get objective response of retreatment with TACE.So the investigators conduct this prospective,randomized controlled study to find out whether the patient who showed TACE-resistant can obtain survival benefit from retreatment with TACE.
