The study will be a single-center, randomized Phase II study of conventional TACE in combination with sorafenib, given either continuously or sequentially, in patients with unresectable HCC. The primary variables will be tumor response (by MR Imaging) and plasma VEGF levels, prior to and after cTACE.
The study will examine and evaluate the use of extracellular RNA in blood as markers for the diagnosis of liver disease or cancer, and as markers for prediction of response to treatment or recurrence of cancer after surgery
This study enrolls patients who have a type of cancer that arises from the liver called hepatocellular carcinoma. The cancer has come back, has not gone away after standard treatment or the patient cannot receive standard treatment. This research study uses special immune system cells called GLYCAR T cells, a new experimental treatment. The body has different ways of fighting infection and disease. No single way seems perfect for fighting cancers. This research study combines two different ways of fighting cancer: antibodies and T cells. Antibodies are types of proteins that protect the body from infectious diseases and possibly cancer. T cells, also called T lymphocytes, are special infection-fighting blood cells that can kill other cells, including cells infected with viruses and tumor cells. Both antibodies and T cells have been used to treat patients with cancers. They have shown promise, but have not been strong enough to cure most patients. Investigators have found from previous research that they can put a new gene into T cells that will make them recognize cancer cells and kill them. In preclinical studies, the investigators made several genes called a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR), from an antibody called GC33 that recognizes glypican-3, a protein found on almost all hepatocellular carcinoma cells (GPC3-CAR). This study will test T cells genetically engineered with a GPC3-CAR (GLYCAR T cells) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. The GLYCAR T cells are an investigational product not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The purpose of this study is to find the biggest dose of GLYCAR T cells that is safe, to see how long they last in the body, to learn what the side effects are and to see if the GLYCAR T cells will help people with GPC3-positive hepatocellular carcinoma.
Liver cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death among Asian men. If diagnosed early the disease is treatable with surgery. Current conventional imaging modalities have limitations to early detection. This study proposes to use 18F-FGal and 18F-FDG PET/CT scans to compare the clinical efficacy of diagnosing hepatocellular carcinoma (a type of liver cancer) using these PET/CT scans.
Background: Combinations of dendritic and cytokine-induced killer cell (D-CIK) based adoptive immunotherapy and anti-PD-1 antibody may enhance the immune response and stop cancer cells from growing. Objective: Phase II clinical trial to investigate the safety, clinical activity and toxicity of combinations of D-CIK and anti-PD-1 antibody in patients with treatment-refractory solid tumors. Methodology: Phase II clinical trial in patients with advanced metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma,bladder cancer,colorectal cancer,non-small-cell lung cancer,breast cancer and other solid cancers. The D-CIK was isolated from peripheral blood of participants,then activated,expanded and incubated with anti-PD-1 antibody before infusion. The enough number (1.0-1.5 *10^10 cells) of D-CIK were infused back into participants.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety of autologous dendritic killer cell (DKC) in patients with metastatic solid tumor and to evaluate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of DKC. The primary endpoint of safety evaluation includes physical examination, assessment of vital sign, laboratory test, concomitant medication, and adverse event (AE). The secondary endpoints regarding efficacy includes the generation of tumor specific immune response by detecting CD3+ CD8+ CD69+ IFN-gamma+ T cells, and the improvement of quality of life
This pilot trial studies how well single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/computed tomography (CT) with technetium Tc-99m sulfur colloid works in measuring liver function in patients with liver cancer that has or has not spread to other place in the body who are undergoing radiation therapy or surgery. Diagnostic procedures, such as sulfur colloid SPECT/CT scans, may measure normal liver tissue before, during and after treatment and help doctors plan better treatment for liver cancer patients.
project is to study and develop anti-Signal Regulatory Protein α (SIRPα) antibodies (Ab) as a new immunotherapy strategy in cancer. Samples harvested from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and ovarian cancer patients will be used in evaluation of the SIRP-CD47 expression and of the effect of the anti-human Signal Regulatory Protein (hSIRP) Ab on various cellular types from patients and healthy volunteers.
This phase II trial studies how well cabozantinib-s-malate works in treating younger patients with sarcomas, Wilms tumor, or other rare tumors that have come back, do not respond to therapy, or are newly diagnosed. Cabozantinib-s-malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for tumor growth and tumor blood vessel growth.
This prospective multicenter non-randomized controlled study evaluates the efficacy and safety of treatment with Sorafenib (Nevaxar) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma with microvascular invasion after radical resection compared to conventional therapies.
