  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate safety and potential therapeutic benefits for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma by transcatheter chemoembolization with the recombinant endostatin (commercially available in China)which is also administrated via the hepatic artery. The hypothesis of this protocol is that TACE with antiangiogenic treatment may inhibit the proangiogenic effects induced by the hypoxia of TACE.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability, Mortality [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Tumor volumetry, Changes of Tumor markers such as AFP, Curriculum survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: April 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2009
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
All patients of this arm are treated by TACE together with Andostatin.
Procedure: Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization
The interventional procedure is performed as following steps: 1)transcatheter hepatic arterial angiography(including any feeding arteries to the tumor) is performed under a DSA unit; 2) super selectively catheterizaton of feeding arteries to the tumor is reached; 3)30 mg of Andostatin (Simcere Co. China) mixtured with 5 ml Lipiodol is injected into the tumor via the feeding arteries; 4) followed by 10 mg of Epifubicin mixtured with 5 ml of Lipiodol; 5) All feeding arteries to the tumor are occluded which is confirmed by re-angiography.
Other Name: TAE
Active Comparator: 2
All patients of this arm are treated by TACE alone: only mixture of Epirubicin and Lipiodol is injected into the feeding arteries of the tumor, without injection of Andostatin.
