Summary of "Transarterial Chemoembolization of Child-A hepatocellular carcinoma: Drug-eluting bead TACE (DEB TACE) vs. TACE with Cisplatin/Lipiodol (cTACE)."

Background: This study is an outcome evaluation of the Drug-Eluting-Bead-Chemoembolization (DEB TACE) compared to conventional TACE (cTACE) with Cisplation and Lipiodol in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and Child-Pugh A Cirrhosis. Material/Methods: A comparison of interventional therapy with either cTACE or DEB-TACE of 22 patients each with unresectable HCC and Child-Pugh A Cirrhosis was carried out. A comparison of therapy-associated complications, tumour response rates and mean survival was performed. Tumour response was evaluated in accordance with the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) response criteria by two radiologists in consensus reading. Results: The choice of TACE procedure (DEB TACE/cTACE) had no significant impact on therapy-associated complications. Objective Response (OR, complete response + partial response) for DEB-TACE was 22.7%; a further 68.2% was stable disease (SD). The respective response rates for the cTACE were OR 22.7 and SD 31.8%. Thus disease control was not significantly increased for DEB TACE (p=0.066). After DEB-TACE mean survival was significantly prolonged with 651±76 days vs. 414±43 days for cTACE (p=0.01). Conclusions: Associated with a similar safety profile and an at least comparable tumour response, the DEB-TACE is a method of treatment for HCC that has the potential to improve mean survival compared to cTACE with Cisplatin/Lipiodol.

An ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS causing chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma in woodchucks. It closely resembles the human hepatitis B virus.

The type species of the genus ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS which causes human HEPATITIS B and is also apparently a causal agent in human HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA. The Dane particle is an intact hepatitis virion, named after its discoverer. Non-infectious spherical and tubular particles are also seen in the serum.

The first alpha-globulins to appear in mammalian sera during development of the embryo and the dominant serum proteins in early embryonic life. They reappear in the adult serum during certain pathologic states, primarily hepatocellular carcinoma. They may also be elevated in the amniotic fluid and maternal serum during pregnancy in ANENCEPHALY.

Performing the role of a parent by care-giving, nurturance, and protection of the child by a natural or substitute parent. The parent supports the child by exercising authority and through consistent, empathic, appropriate behavior in response to the child's needs. PARENTING differs from CHILD REARING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the children and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.
