Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) combines intra-arterial delivery of a chemotherapeutic agent with selective embolization to obtain a synergistic effect. TACE is recognized as the standard treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma patients at an intermediate stage. If conventional TACE, defined as the injection of an emulsion of a drug with ethiodized oil, still has a role to play, the development of drug-eluting beads has allowed many improvements and optimization of the technique. TANDEM microspheres are second-generation drug-loadable microspheres. This device raised a special interest due to its tightly calibrated spherical microspheres, with small sizes down to 40 μm available. In this review, we describe the technical characteristics of these microspheres, analyze the scientific literature and hypothesize on the future perspectives.

Mixed hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinomas (HCC-CCA) are rare tumors with both hepatocellular and biliary differentiation. While liver transplantation (LT) is the gold standard treatment for patients wi...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in cirrhosis is diagnosed, most of times, when it is not susceptible to curative treatment. Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a palliative therapeutic option wit...
Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is a standard therapy used in the treatment of intermediate hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, balloon-occluded TACE (B-TACE) has been developed.
Chemoembolization is a recognized treatment strategy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) - classical chemoembolization consists in injecting an emulsion of an anticancer agent in L...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most-common cancer worldwide and the second most-common cause of cancer mortality. Liver resection is the first-line curative treatment for huge...

The purpose of this study is to determine safety and local tumor control of Embozene TANDEM Microspheres (40um TANDEM) loaded with Irinotecan to treat metastatic colorectal carcinoma (mCRC...
Chemoembolization (TACE) is used in the majority of advanced hepatocellular carcinomas. Randomized clinical trials indicated that TACE improves overall survival in patients with good liver...
An ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS causing chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma in woodchucks. It closely resembles the human hepatitis B virus.
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.
Copies of DNA sequences which lie adjacent to each other in the same orientation (direct tandem repeats) or in the opposite direction to each other (INVERTED TANDEM REPEATS).
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.
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...
