Transarterial Chemoembolization for Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma With Portal Vein Tumor Thrombosis
Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) had been proved to improve the survivals for middle stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but for advanced stage HCC its' efficacy had not been proved. The investigators hypothesize that TACE also improve the survivals for advanced stage HCC. Thus, the investigators carried out this prospective control study to find out if the survivals for patients after TACE better than only best support or not.

Hepatitis B Virus, Woodchuck
An ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS causing chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma in woodchucks. It closely resembles the human hepatitis B virus.
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.
The purpose of this study is to elucidate the influence of anti-hepatitis B virus therapy on safety and survival of HCC patient after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether TAC-101 combined with Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization (TACE) is more effective than TACE alone in slowing tumor activity in patie...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of cisplatin (CDDP) and epirubicin (EPI) in the treatment of transcatheter chemoembolization for Hepatocellular Carcinoma (H...
This project will include at least 40 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who will receive transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as a sole method for the management. The...
PURPOSE:: To retrospectively evaluate the effectiveness, tolerance, and predictors of response to transcatheter arterial chemoembolization for treatment of liver metastases from adrenocortical carcino...
We report a case of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) to treat hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that was supplied by the short gastric artery. A 67-year-old woman with two nodular HCCs und...
Of 15,681 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), 30% underwent transcatheter arterial chemoembolization with lipiodol (Lip-TACE) including infusion chemotherapy with lipiodol (Lip-TAI) for the...
Objectives- The purposes of this study were to evaluate the sonographic findings of recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization and to determine how often the les...
BACKGROUND: There is no standard therapy for patients with transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE)-refractory hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study examined whether...
