The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC) compared with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) in patients with large hepatocellular carcinoma staged BCLC A/B.
This study is an exploratory study aiming to collect data about diagnosis efficacy (sensitivity and specificity) of P03277 triphasic liver imaging for HCC in subjects with suspected small nodules and chronic liver disease. 30 subjects will be included, having HCC confirmed or not by previous enhanced CT and/or MRI and before any biopsy for histology analysis. The standard of reference for diagnosis will be given by the site according to their standard of care and adapted from EASL/EORTC diagnostic criteria (considering previous contrast enhanced imaging (CT and/or MRI) and/or biopsy specimen analysis given on-site and/or the more recent AFP results available).
It is a prospective and multi-center clinical research in China to compare the efficacy, safety and related impact factors between TACE alone and endovascular brachytherapy combined with stent placement and TACE for HCC with main portal vein tumor thrombus.
This project involves the collection and analysis of retrospective and prospective data on patients diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in which the Surefire Precision Infusion System was used/will used be to deliver transarterial chemoembolization with doxorubicin-eluting beads (DEB-TACE). The purpose is to compare tumor and medical response in a real-world setting as well as identify potential areas for future clinical research.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a common fatal malignant tumor, although with the popularity of health examination, most patients were diagnosed as HCC in advanced stages so far. Sorafenib is currently recognized worldwide as the only effective treatment for advanced HCC. However, sorafenib need long-term medication, and will bring a series of side effects, including, hand, foot and comprehensive syndrome (Hand-foot syndrome, HFS) limbs swelling, rash, peeling, pain.Occurrence rate of HFS is about 21%-51%, which seriously affect patient's quality of life.Besides, this side effects appeared to be dose-related.When severe HFS happened, sorafenib need to reduce dosage or discontinue administration, which could seriously affect the patient's survival. Therefore, investigators designed this prospective randomized controlled study to explore preventive effect of celecoxib for sorafenib related HFS, the influence on the quality of life in patients with, and also the synergistic anti-tumor effect of celecoxib in combination with sorafenib on HCC. This study will explore horizon of improving treatment for sorafenib in patients with advanced HCC,quality of life and tumor control.
This is not a research study. The purpose is to provide supervised access to TheraSphere® therapy at this institution.
This is a Phase I, open label study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of INO-1400 alone or in combination with INO-9012, delivered by electroporation in subjects with high-risk solid tumor cancer with no evidence of disease after surgery and standard therapy. Subjects will be enrolled into one of six treatment arms. Subjects will be assessed according to standard of care. Restaging and imaging studies will be performed to assess disease relapse per NCCN guidelines. RECIST will be used to validate the findings in cases of relapse.
For early stage of HCC, surgical resection or radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is the mainstay curative treatments. However, recurrence is still a major issue after the surgery or RFA. Only selected patients are eligible and tolerable to IFN-based treatment after surgical resection and the sustained virological response varied. Harvoni for genotype 1 HCV and sovaldi plus ribavirin for genotype 2 HCV can achieve high SVR and being recommended by AASLD and EASL. Mixed HCV genotype infection accounts for 10% of CHC patients in Taiwan. Sovaldi-based treatment plus ribavirin should be as effective as Sovaldi plus rivavirin in the treatment of genotype 2 HCV, as well as mixed genotype 1 and 2 HCV infection. As genotype 1 and 2 are the leading HCV genotypes in Taiwan, It can simplify the regimen of anti-HCV treatment in Taiwan by using Harvoni plus ribavirin, not only for genotype 1 and 2 HCV but also for mixed genotype 1 and 2 HCV infection. Although an unexpected high recurrence rate in HCC patients under DAA treatment was reported once. However, one recent study showed a low risk of HCC recurrence after DAA treatment. In this study, the investigators plan to enroll 130 HCV-HCC patients after confirming curative treatment for their HCC, either by surgery or RFA. For the cases fulfilling the inclusion/exclusion criteria, a 12 weeks Harvoni plus ribavirin treatment will be provided for all cases (single armed design). The primary objective of the study is annual recurrence-free survival after curative resection of HCV-HCC for up to 5 years. A hospital-based cohorts of HCV-related HCC undergoing surgical resection or RFA from Taipei Veterans General Hospital and Investigated Sites will be recruited as historical controls.
In light of this new technology and preliminary findings of low toxicity of online, adaptive, magnetic resonance (M)-guided stereotactic radiation on a single arm prospective study, the investigators propose to compare this technique to online MR-guided stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) without adaptation. Online plan adaptation increases treatment times for patients and comprises an increased burden on technical and clinical staff. Although preliminary trial results are encouraging, it remains unclear if the dosimetric benefits of online-adaptive planning studies will translate to measurable improvements in clinical outcomes that merit its routine use. In our preliminary study, plan adaptation was most often required when tumors were adjacent to the gastrointestinal tract (the esophagus to the sigmoid colon), as those structures were most commonly the dose-limiting structures and were noted to change in location on a day-to-day basis. For these reasons, abdominal disease sites have historically highlighted the limitations of SBRT. Specifically, the investigators will enroll patients with oligometastatic or unresectable primary disease of the non-liver abdomen to a randomized, prospective trial. Patients will be randomized to one of two treatment arms, in which they will receive either online-adaptive, MRI-guided SBRT or non-adaptive MRI-guided SBRT. Both patient groups will undergo MRI simulation and MRI treatment localization with online MR monitoring and/or gating. All patients will be treated in five fractions over one to two weeks. By adhering to strict normal tissue constraints, the investigators expect toxicity to be within the current standard of care for the non-adaptive arm, with reduction in toxicity in the arm of patients who undergo adaptation based on daily anatomic changes.
The aim of this research project is to assess the efficacy and toxicity of hypofractionated carbon-ion radiotherapy with concurrent granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma
