This is a two arm, open label, multi-center, Phase 2 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Melphalan/HDS in patients with unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) or Intra Hepatic Cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) confined to the liver.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an investigational drug DCB-BO1202 is effective and safe in the treatment of liver fibrosis in HBV patients having experienced intermediate stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)
To prove that the efficacy and safety of 'MASCT group' is superior to 'non-treatment group' in patient undergone curative resection (RFA or operation) for hepatocellular carcinoma in China.
A retrospective study based on analysis of medical records of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma treated at the Hospital Sírio-Libanês (Sao Paulo-Brazil) between 2001 and 2011 with diagnosis confirmed by imaging or histological specimen underwent surgical resection with curative intent. The study aims to determine the prognostic value of vascular complications related to cancer and to evaluate the survival rate of these patients, comparing the data with those reported in the literature.
This phase I trial studies the best dose and side effects of recombinant vesicular stomatitis virus expressing interferon beta in treating patients with liver cancer or solid tumors with lesions that have spread to other parts of the body and do not respond to treatment. The study virus has a gene inserted into it which will allow production of interferon beta, which is a substance that will restrict the spread of the virus to tumor cells and not healthy cells. It will also have some independent anti-cancer activity. Although the primary goal of this study is to evaluate the safety of delivery of this viral agent to people, patients may benefit clinically by having shrinkage or stabilization of their tumor or reduction in their cancer related symptoms (e.g., pain).

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth commonest cancer in the world with poor prognosis, as the annual mortality is almost equivalent to the incidence. This is mainly due to late diagnosis and co-morbid liver dysfunction. HCC is prevalent in our region than in the West due to prevalent Hepatitis B infection and carriers. At the time of diagnosis, only 10 - 20% of HCC patients are candidates for liver resection or transplantation. Almost 40-50% of patients have such poor liver function and co-morbid conditions that only supportive cares are offered. Thus the median survival time is 18-24 months for resectable disease, 6 months for unresectabe disease and 3 months for metastatic disease. Current screening methods for HCC in high risk patients depend on alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and ultrasound of the liver. Neither test is sensitive or specific enough for early detection. Therefore, early diagnosis with novel protein biomarkers is needed urgently and may provides hope to improve treatment outcome. Our preliminary study in 49 HCC patients have identified several proteins such as truncated complement C3a, albumin, B2 microglobulin, may be potentially helpful in early diagnosis. We have started a large prospective and longitudinal study in July 2006, with nearly 100 patients accrued. This application is to extend and expand our current study. We aim to (i) identify and validate novel protein biomarkers for early diagnosis of HCC (ii) conduct longitudinal proteomics with most up-to-date methods to discover new biomarker for early detection and prognostication of HCC (iii) set up gene and plasma depository and clinical database for HCC in collaboration with Singapore Tissue Network.
