The Role of Fluorothymidine Positron Emission Tomography (FLT-PET) in Proliferation of Colorectal Liver Metastases

The aim of the study is to obtain information on FLT used in a PET-scan as a marker for the proliferation of colorectal liver metastases, so that the risk of recurrence can be identified i...

3D Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Imaging in Predicting Treatment Response in Patients With Liver Metastases From Colon Cancer

Patients are invited to participate in a research study of liver perfusion (how blood flows to the liver over time). Researchers hope to learn whether perfusion characteristics of liver me...

Quality of Life and Liver Metastases

An increasing aggressiveness in the surgical approach of colorectal liver metastases is observed. This seems only justified when, besides prolongation of survival, also the health status o...

Impact of Pre-operative Bevacizumab on Complications After Resection of Colorectal Liver Metastases

Hypothesis of the study: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy with Bevacizumab impairs postoperative outcome after resection of colorectal liver metastases.

CAR-T Hepatic Artery Infusions for CEA-Expressing Liver Metastases

This is an open label, fixed dose, phase Ib trial of anti-CEA CAR-T cell infusions delivered via the hepatic artery using the Surefire Infusion System (SIS) for patients with CEA-expressin...

Growth rates of pulmonary metastases after liver transplantation for unresectable colorectal liver metastases.

The previously reported SECA study demonstrated a dramatic 5-year survival improvement in patients with unresectable colorectal liver metastases (CLM) treated with liver transplantation (LT) compared ...

Preoperative Fluorouracil, Doxorubicin, and Streptozocin for the Treatment of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases.

While preoperative chemotherapy is frequently utilized before resection of non-neuroendocrine liver metastases, patients with resectable neuroendocrine liver metastases typically undergo surgery first...

A Complete Pathological Response to Pembrolizumab following ex vivo Liver Resection in a Patient with Colorectal Liver Metastases.

Advances in the systemic treatment of stage IV colorectal cancer with liver metastases has offered improved survival rates for patients who otherwise face a dismal prognosis. However, a pathologically...

Remnant Liver Ischemia as a Prognostic Factor for Cancer-Specific Survival After Resection of Colorectal Liver Metastases.

Ischemia-reperfusion injury during hepatic resection has been shown to accelerate progression of liver cancer. However, the prognostic relevance of remnant liver ischemia (RLI) after resection of colo...

Biomarkers in colorectal liver metastases.

Despite a 5-year overall survival rate of 58 per cent after liver resection for colorectal liver metastases (CLMs), more than half of patients develop recurrence, highlighting the need for accurate ri...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)

An antineoplastic antimetabolite that is metabolized to fluorouracil when administered by rapid injection; when administered by slow, continuous, intra-arterial infusion, it is converted to floxuridine monophosphate. It has been used to treat hepatic metastases of gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas and for palliation in malignant neoplasms of the liver and gastrointestinal tract.

Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.

Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.

Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
