This Phase I study of sorafenib in high risk hepatocellular cancer patients after liver transplantation will study 24 subjects for about 5 years. Each subject will receive sorafenib for 6 months. Safety and effectiveness on the post transplant, high risk HCC patients will be studied.
Sorafenib (BAY 43-9006) is an oral multi-kinase inhibitor with effects on tumor proliferation and angiogenesis. Sorafenib is approved for the treatment of patients with advanced renal cancer and unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The recommended daily dose of Sorafenib is 400 mg (2 x 200 mg tablets) taken twice daily without food (at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal). Studies of single-agent sorafenib showed treatment was well-tolerated with manageable side effects. The results seen with sorafenib in the Phase III (SHARP) trial suggest that VEGF and RAF kinase inhibition prolong survival in patients with advanced HCC. It is not known whether a drug which is considered primarily cytostatic will be effective in preventing cancer recurrences in the setting of minimal residual disease.
This is a phase I, single center, open-label, dose-escalation study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and overall safety profile of daily sorafenib as therapy to prevent HCC recurrence in liver transplant subjects with high-risk HCC. For each subject, the study will consist of two phases: a treatment phase and an extension phase.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.
