Hepatic Artery Infusion With Oxaliplatin
Hepatic Arterial Infusion of Oxaliplatin Clinical Trial

Hepatic artery infusion (HAI) with oxaliplatin (OX), systemic 5 fluorouracil (5FU), and leucovorin (HAI/OX/FU) will be implemented using an interventional radiology technique to obviate the need for initial major surgery (catheter placement) in patients who have unresectable liver metastasis from colorectal cancer. The study goal is to reduce tumor size to make possible a complete resection of all lesions. Secondary goals are to reduce or eliminate the complexity usually associated with HAI, to accomplish most or all of the treatment as an outpatient, to reduce costs, and to avoid the hepatotoxicity associated with HAI/floxuridine (FUDR). Oxaliplatin has been selected because of its ease of use, known toxicology, and established efficacy in colorectal cancer.

After entry qualification and registration patients will undergo hepatic artery catheterization via interventional radiology. The catheter will remain in place for two hours while oxaliplatin is infused and then be removed. This treatment will be followed by a 48 hour infusion of 5FU and leucovorin, generally following the principle of FOLFOX 6. These cycles of therapy will be repeated biweekly for six episodes. Hepatic tumor size will be evaluated by CT scan to determine if resectability has been established as the result of tumor size reduction. If so, the patient will be offered resection of the residual lesions in an effort to achieve long term survival.
