Observational trials
Address health issues in large groups of people or populations in natural settings.
Participants are currently being recruited and enrolled.

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.

This is an open-label, multicenter, phase 1 study of BBI608 in combination with Sorafenib. This study population is adult Japanese patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma in Sorafenib combination therapy.

February 2015 - February 2020
The purpose of this study is: - to investigate the risk factors of HCC among Americans with focus on lifestyle factors and energy balance. - to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and haplotypes that are associated with HCC risk through a genome-wide search. - to assess if genetic susceptibility differs by hepatitis virus infection or lifestyle factors, and to explore if there are interplays or effect modifications between genetic factors and viral infection or lifestyle factors.

Metformin treatment during 36 months could be associated with decreased risk of HCC occurrence and liver related death in patients with compensated HCV cirrhosis and insulinoresistance. This study is an ancillary of the observational study from the CIRVIR cohort in which more than 1200 patients with compensated HCV cirrhosis are currently included. participating centers : 26

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.

December 2014 - December 2016
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of the investigational anticancer drug DCR-MYC. DCR-MYC is a novel synthetic double-stranded RNA in a stable lipid particle suspension that targets the oncogene MYC. MYC oncogene activation is important to the growth of many hematologic and solid tumor malignancies. In this study the Sponsor proposes to study DCR-MYC and its ability to inhibit MYC and thereby inhibit cancer cell growth.

This is an open label, three-arm, phase 1 dose escalation study and phase 2 study of BBI608 in combination with sorafenib, or BBI503 in combination with sorafenib. The study population is adult patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma who have not received systemic chemotherapy.

December 2014 - June 2016
This study is a phase II, prospective, open-label, single arm, single center study of the efficacy and safety of concurrent conventional transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and sorafenib in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and extrahepatic metastasis. All of the 55 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and newly diagnosed extrahepatic (lung, bone, lymph node, adrenal gland) metastasis will be included. On demand conventional TACE will be performed in all the patients after enrollment and can be continued until intrahepatic CR, TACE failure or consent withdrawal. Sorafenib will be started 3-7 days after the first and each subsequent TACE and stopped one day before next TACE and will be continued until sorafenib failure, consent withdrawal or condition worsening by clinical decision. Repeated on-demand TACE and sorafenib should continue until the criteria for treatment discontinuation are met. After initiation of sorafenib combination treatment, patients will be seen and will perform routine examination at week 4 and, after then routine examination will be followed every 6 ± 2 weeks.

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.
Sponsor: University of California, San Francisco
Study type: Interventional
December 2014 - December 2016
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.
