The purpose of this protocol is to pathologically evaluate the destruction by microwave ablation of primary and metastatic liver tumors. The primary aim is to measure tissue destruction with the MedWaves Microwave Ablation/ Coagulation Ablation System.
Minimally invasive surgical alternatives are becoming more attractive for the treatment of malignancy.The goal is to reduce morbidity and mortality and increase the ability to treat patients in the outpatient setting. Image-guided ablation is becoming an attractive alternative because of its relative low cost, its ability to provide large regions of coagulative necrosis in a controlled fashion, and its relatively low toxicity. Although image-guided ablative techniques have been extensively investigated for the treatment of liver tumors, there has been limited experience with microwave ablation (MWA) in the liver. This study will evaluate the treatment effect of MWA in liver tumors. Patients undergoing planned surgical removal of liver tumors will have the tumors intra-operatively treated with MWA. The histological changes will be evaluated upon removal of the specimen.

This is a Phase I study, which means that the goal is to see if the combination of Temsirolimus and Sorafenib is safe in patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma. Sorafenib is a standard tre...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of PI-88 to inhibit or reduce tumor recurrence in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma following hepatectomy.
Orbital metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma is exceedingly rare and caries a grave prognosis. Three cases of metastatic orbital hepatocellular carcinoma in which the primary tumor was initially unk...
Recurrence rate of hepatocellular carcinoma remains quite high even after surgery, and no postoperative therapies have been definitively shown to prevent hepatocellular carcinoma recurrence. A previou...
Tumor-associated macrophages, crucial components of the microenvironment in hepatocellular carcinoma, hamper anti-cancer immune responses. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of...
The majority of cases of hepatocellular carcinoma have been reported in individuals with cirrhosis due to chronic viral hepatitis and alcoholism, but recently, the prevalence has become increasingly r...
BACKGROUND Primary hepatocellular carcinoma is one of the most common malignant tumors in China and its mortality rate shows no sign at present of ceasing to rise. In our previous study, we found that...
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.
A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.
The founding member of the EPH FAMILY RECEPTORS. It was first cloned from an erythropoietin-producing human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and is highly conserved among many mammalian species. Overproduction of the EphA1 receptor is associated with tumors and tumor cells of epithelial origin. It is also expressed at high levels in LIVER; LUNG; and KIDNEY; which is in contrast to many other members of the Eph receptor that are found primarily in tissues of the nervous system.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
