Background and Aims: Arrival of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) agents against hepatitis C virus (HCV) with high-sustained virological response (SVR) rates and very few side effects has drastically changed the management of HCV infection. The impact of DAA exposure on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after a first remission in patients with advanced fibrosis remains to be clarified. Methods: 68 consecutive HCV patients with a first HCC diagnosis and under remission, subsequently treated or not with a DAA combination, were included. Clinical, biological, and virological data were collected at first HCC diagnosis, at remission and during the surveillance period.
To compare the impact on recurrence risk of adjuvant TAI and adjuvant TACE for patients with HCC and PVTT after hepatectomy.
To compare The Impact on Recurrence Risk of Adjuvant Transarterial Chemoinfusion (TAI) for Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma And Microvascular Invasion (MVI) After Hepatectomy.
Combined hepatocellular and mass-forming cholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-MFCCC) is a rare tumor. The aim of this study was the analysis of the outcome comparing such tumor with classic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and mass-forming cholangiocarcinoma (MFCCC).
This is a pilot study designed to evaluate the cutaneous effect of systemic inhibition of the tyrosine kinase pathway in the presence or absence of solar simulated light exposure. A maximum of 45 subjects will be accrued into the overall study we anticipate approximately 25 patients in the Raf inhibitor group and 10 patients each into the Tyrosine Kinase and MEK inhibitor arms of the study.
This study enrolls patients who have relapsed/advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, BCLC stage C). The HCC tumor relapsed or metastasized through the body after standard treatment or the patients cannot receive standard treatment under current conditions. This research study uses specific HCC antigens CD8+ T cells, a new experimental treatment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerance as well as the potential clinical efficacy of an adoptive transfer of CD8+ T cells, sorted with human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-peptide multimers and specific for Glypican (GPC)-3 /New York Esophageal Squamous-1 (NY-ESO-1) /alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) antigens and cultured in vitro, to patients suffering from relapsed/advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
This study enrolls patients who have relapsed/advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, BCLC stage C). The HCC tumor relapsed or metastasized through the body after standard treatment or the patients cannot receive standard treatment under current conditions. This research study uses special immune system cells called iNKT cells, a new experimental treatment. The purpose of this study is to find the biggest dose of iNKT cells that is safe and tolerance, to see how long they last in the body, to learn the immunoresponse in the body, to learn the side effects are and to see if the iNKT cells will help people with relapsed/advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
Liver transplantation (LT) represents the best treatment for patients with selected, early stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Due to the gap between the number of patients on the waiting list and the available donors, patients with HCC wait ~1 year to be transplanted. While waiting, 25-30% of patients need to come off the transplant list due to tumor progression beyond transplant criteria (extrahepatic disease, vascular invasion or increase in tumor burden beyond enlistment criteria). To try to avoid this progression, patients are treated while waiting with "bridging therapies", mainly transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and ablation. Around 30% of patients are not eligible for these treatments (.e.g. due to poor liver function). Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) has been shown to be an effective treatment for advanced HCC in primarily small, single institutional studies and its safety has been reported in cirrhotics. SBRT could be used in patients not eligible to TACE or ablation as a bridge to LT reducing the risk of progression in the waiting list. This study will evaluate if patients with liver cirrhosis and HCC benefit from receiving SBRT while awaiting LT. Patients will be randomized to a treatment arm where they will receive SBRT as a bridge therapy or to a no intervention arm. Outcomes prior and post to transplant will be performed to evaluate the differences between both arms: proportion of patients that do not drop-out of the list (are transplanted), liver decompensation while waiting, perioperative measures in those that are transplanted, time to transplant or drop-out, overall survival, disease-free survival in those that are transplanted in a population of about 330 patients across all sites.
This is a single-arm, single-center, open-label trial of pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in subjects with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma as second-line treatment after failure of sorafenib. Approximately 60 subjects will be enrollment to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab. Enrollment will begin with all subjects without regard for PD-L1 expression status. An evaluable specimen for PD-L1 status must be available and confirmed prior to enrollment. All study subjects will be evaluated every 6 weeks (+/- 7 days) following the date of IP drug adminstration for the first 12 months and every 12 weeks (+/- 7 days) thereafter until progression of disease is documented with radiologic imaging (computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging). The primary efficacy endpoint is ORR (objective response rate) per RECIST 1.1.
All consecutive patients with liver cirrhosis, with clinical and imaging features suggestive of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) attending the Department of Hepatology, Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) from February 2017 to December 2018 will be evaluated for inclusion.Based on the previous years data of HCC patients admitted to ILBS. Cirrhotic patients aged 18-70 years, with HCC proven by typical radiological features of arterial enhancement and delayed wash-out, on one or both of dynamic Computerized Tomographic or dynamic Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), as per updated American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) guidelines (details in appendix1). Age and gender matched patients with cirrhosis, but without HCC, seen during the same study period will serve as controls. Patient characteristics, etiology of cirrhosis, and liver function parameters will be noted. Investigator will stage the included patients as per the Barcelona Cancer of Liver Cancer (BCLC) criteria (details in appendix1). Investigator will then estimate Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC) and cfDNA in peripheral blood samples of the patients and controls.
