The primary efficacy endpoint will be the proportion of subjects that remain free of progression at the 27th week following the onset of treatment. Secondary objectives include the subject's time in weeks from treatment onset to documented disease progression as assessed by the RECIST criteria, response rate, median and overall survival, safety and tolerability.
This is a phase II study to assess the proportion of subjects that remain progression-free by the 27th week following the onset of treatment and to assess the efficacy of the combination of Bevacizumab and Erlotinib in prolonging time to progression in subjects with inoperable and metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma. Subjects will be treated with a combination of rhuMAb VEGF (Bevacizumab), in combination with Erlotinib and TTP will be assessed as per RECIST criteria. The disease will be evaluated at base line and every 9 weeks with CT scan/MRI and AFP levels. Subjects will be kept on the study till disease progression (as defined by RECIST criteria) or death.

The primary objective will be to assess progression-free survival (PFS) measured at 16 weeks following initiation of therapy with the combination of Avastin and erlotinib in patients with ...
This trial will investigate the combination of bevacizumab, and erlotinib in patients with adenocarcinoma or poorly differentiated carcinoma of unknown primary site. Bevacizumab and erlot...
Patients with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma will undergo transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE) as clinically indicated and will be randomized to receive bevacizumab or plac...
This is an open-label, randomized, multicenter phase II study conducting in 3 medical centers in Asia. Patients will receive erlotinib in combination with bevacizumab or erlotinib alone. T...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of bevacizumab when given in combination with gemcitabine and oxaliplatin and to see what effects (good or bad) it has on patients with hepa...
A Randomized Phase II Open-Label Multi-Institution Study of the Combination of Bevacizumab and Erlotinib Compared to Sorafenib in the First-Line Treatment of Patients with Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
To investigate the clinical efficacy and tolerability of the combination of bevacizumab (B) and erlotinib (E) compared to sorafenib (S) as first-line treatment for patients with advanced hepatocellula...
Leptomeningeal metastases (LMs) were devastating metastatic complications of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Management of LMs relied on conventional therapy but with poor survival, lacking effect...
Studies have shown that addition of bevacizumab to corticosteroids improves outcome against radiation-induced brain necrosis (RN). Here, we aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of bevacizuma...
The hepatocyte paraffin 1 antibody (Hep Par 1) has a high positive predictive value for differentiating hepatocellular carcinoma from cholangiocarcinoma and metastatic carcinoma. We report a case of m...
Linc-POU3F3 showed an up-regulated tendency and functioned as tumor promoter in glioma, esophageal cancer and colorectal cancer. There was no report about the expression pattern and clinical value of ...
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.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
