Malignant cells frequently produce many tumor growth factors to autocidal or endocrinal proliferate growth, metastasis,or angiogenesis about tumor cells. By studying tumor growth factors in hepatocellular carcinoma, one may know the tumor behavior, its relationship with clinical manifestation or invasion, and could be used as diagnostic or prognostic tools.This study aims to study the relationship between tumor growth factors in HCC ant its clinical relevance.
HCC is an aggressive, largely chemo-resistant cancer with a poor prognosis, currently there is no effective systemic chemotherapy for HCC. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) are both overexpressed in HCC and thought to contribute to tumor development. Oxaliplatin in combination with other chemotherapies or biologic agents have been shown to be an effective and safe treatment in advanced HCC patients. Sorafenib, an oral m...
This project will include at least 40 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who will receive transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as a sole method for the management. The serum is collected before and at the 3rd and 7th day after TACE. The serum levels of vascular endothelial growth factor, angiopoietin 2, endostatin and cathepsin L are determined. All patients will be evaluated according to the TNM system for the cancer staging before and 3 months after each ...
The secretion by tumor cells of alpha fetoprotein (AFP) was observed in 50 to 60% of hepatocellular carcinoma. The AFP can be used as a marker for tumor recurrence after treatment and may be considered as a tumor antigen specific for hepatocellular carcinoma.The aim of the project is to use the alpha fetoprotein (AFP) as a tumor antigen and to propose an approach of immunotherapy for hepatocellular carcinoma based on the injection of autologous dendritic cells loaded with speci...
The hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) represents more than 5% of all human malignancies, with more than 500,000 deaths per year (1). In Campania region, mortality for HCC is 2 times higher than in the rest of Italy because of a higher locally prevalence of hepatitis-C virus infection. Development of HCC in liver cirrhosis is associated with increased DNA synthesis and regeneration of hepatocytes (2). Hepatocyte growth factor, the transforming growth factor-α, the fibroblas...
Hepatocellular carcinoma is a highly malignant tumor that is progressing rapidly. Hepatic arterial embolization chemotherapy (TACE) is a common method for the treatment of unresectable of hepatocellular carcinoma.But for patients with > 10cm hepatocellular carcinoma, the intervention effect was not satisfied.The cyberknife is a kind of stereotactic radiotherapy which can track the movement of tumor and monitor the position deviation of tumor in real time.This stuy is aimed to o...
Polymorphisms of HSP70 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha promoter in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, chronic liver disease and healthy controls will be measured by PCR-RFLP or direct sequencing. The clinical relevance of patients will be compared in those with polymorphism and those without.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the lethal human cancers worldwide and its incidence matches mortality, reflecting the poor prognosis of this disease. The surgical resection rate of HCC is low, and the prognosis is poor. Although transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the main treatment for HCC patients who are not candidates for surgical resection, it is not considered a curative procedure. For HCC, poor TACE efficacy or TACE failure may be related to tumor angioge...
The aim of this pilot study is to correlate the sorafenib plasma concentration to observed toxicity and to the disease control rate in 100 patients undergoing a palliative treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). If some correlations are observed, we will consider planning a larger interventional study to adjust sorafenib daily dose to plasma concentration.
To date, Sorafenib is the only drug therapy to have demonstrated a benefit in overall survival in patients with advanced or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma. However, this treatment causes many adverse effects that may limit its prescription. Under these conditions, predicting and therefore potentially preventing the adverse effects of sorafenib is a major issue in the management of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma treated with this drug. Currently, there is li...
Primary: - To determine the Tumor Response Rate of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma treated with the combination chemotherapy of Eloxatin+5-Fluorouracil/Leucovorin Secondary: - Safety and tolerability of this regimen in these patients
Hepatocellular carcinoma represents the commonest primary cancer of the liver.serum lactate dehydrogenase is an indirect marker of tumor hypoxia,angioneogenesis and worse prognosis.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of PI-88 to inhibit or reduce tumor recurrence in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma following hepatectomy.
Hepatocellular carcinoma is an aggressive disease with limited therapeutic options. Therefore, new approaches to treat this type of cancer are needed with immunotherapy potentially being one of these. As a first step in the development of novel therapies, expression analysis of specific markers, including tumor antigens will be carried out. This will be done retrospectively using available hepatocellular carcinoma tissue samples.
The 1-year and 2-year overall survival rate (OS), local control rate (FFLP), disease-free progression time (PFS), and side effects were compared in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma limited to intrahepatic unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma with portal venous thrombosis combined with or without external radiotherapy, providing a basis for the development of relevant guidelines.
The rate of liver cirrhosis is about 40% to 75% among patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Therefore, many patients with HCC were with low serum albumin before and after (especially) hepatic resection. Serum albumin level has been routinely used in clinical practice as a surrogate marker to evaluate nutritional status and liver function. Serum albumin concentration is used as an independent mortality risk predictor in a broad range of clinical and research settings. Ho...
The purpose of this study is to determine maximum tolerated dose (MTD), efficacy, safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and anti-tumor effect of E7080 when is administered continually once daily in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma.
Anatomical liver resection was widely accepted as first line curative therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma. However, number of retrospective clinical studies showed no priority of anatomical resection for hepatocellular, compared with non-anatomical resection. Surgical resection margin is a essential factor that may affect tumor prognosis. It is controversial whether adequate liver resection margin is associated with improved survival outcome in patients with hepatocellular. ...
This study is working to evaluate the surgical comprehensive treatment for different types of tumor thrombi in the portal vein for hepatocellular carcinoma patients, to establish a standardized, unified, effective therapeutic program.
Primary objective: To determine the Tumor Response Rate of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma treated with the combination chemotherapy of Eloxatin+5-FU/LV Secondary objective: To evaluate time to progression, 6month survival, overall survival, safety and tolerability of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma treated with the combination chemotherapy of Eloxatin+5-FU/LV
Patients with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma will undergo transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE) as clinically indicated and will be randomized to receive bevacizumab or placebo every 2 weeks up to 1 year. Tumor response will be assessed using MR of the liver and PET-scanning. It will be tested whether the addition of bevacizumab as angiogenic inhibitor will slow down tumor progression, reduce the need for re-embolisation and will improve patient survival.
This study is being carried out in order to evaluate a new cancer vaccine called IMA970A combined with CV8102, a new adjuvant for the treatment of liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma). It will be investigated whether IMA970A and CV8102 is safe and can trigger an immune response against the tumor, which may prevent the tumor (cancer) from recurring or spreading or may even lead to tumor shrinkage following the standard treatments the patients have previously received.
RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well bortezomib works in treating patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) that cannot be removed with surgery.
Microvascular invasion (MVI) has been well demonstrated as an unfavorable prognostic factor for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and patients with MVI have a high risk of tumor recurrence after curative hepatectomy. Currently, the diagnosis of MVI is determined on the postoperative histologic examination, which greatly limits its influence on preoperative decision making. Therefore, we constructed this prospective study to develop a machine learning-based model for preoperative ...
Hepatocellular carcinoma is one the leading cause of increasing cancer-specific mortality worldwide. Early diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma provides opportunity for curative therapeutic approaches and relatively favorable prognosis. Herein, we intended to establish a biosignature for early diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma and stratification of risk population for intensive follow-up by implementing biannual follow-up investigation and collecting peripheral blood sampl...
