Study in Asia of the Combination of TACE With Sorafenib in HCC Patients

2014-07-23 21:12:34 | BioPortfolio


TACE possibly plays a significant role in contributing to a subgroup of surviving residual tumor tissue which is characterized by more aggressive biology. This explains the strong scientific rationale for exploring the role of anti-angiogenic therapy such as sorafenib to remedy and strengthen the therapeutic efficacy of TACE to combat liver cancers. Sorafenib plays a prominent auxiliary role by further suppressing the tumor growth and prolonging the time to recurrence and progression. Performing TACE under sorafenib administration may have synergic effect on hepatic tumoral lesions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.

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.
