Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of sorafenib in combination with low dose cisplatin /fluorouracil hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma Carcinoma Carcinoma, Hepatocellular Liver Neoplasms Neoplasms Drug: Sorafenib with Low-dose FP Drug: Sorafenib Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Sorafenib with Low-dose FP Group

Sorafenib will be administered orally at a dose of 400 mg (2 x 200 mg tablets) twice daily (bid) for 28 days. Cisplatin at the dose of 20mg/m2 will be administered at day 1 and day8, and fluorouracil at the dose of 330mg/m2 will be administered continuously at day1-day5, and day8-day12 via the implanted catheter system.

Sorafenib Group

Sorafenib will be administered orally at a dose of 400 mg (2 x 200 mg tablets) twice daily (bid) for 28 days.

The treatment regimen will be continued until radiographic or symptomatic progression, the development of unacceptable toxicity.
