BACKGROUND There are no systemic treatments for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) whose disease progresses during sorafenib treatment. We aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of regorafenib in patients with HCC who have progressed during sorafenib treatment. METHODS In this randomised, double-blind, parallel-group, phase 3 trial done at 152(More)
BACKGROUND There is no standard of care for adjuvant therapy for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. This trial was designed to assess the efficacy and safety of sorafenib versus placebo as adjuvant therapy in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma after surgical resection or local ablation. METHODS We undertook this phase 3, double-blind,(More)
HULC is a long noncoding RNA overexpressed in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but its functional contributions in this setting have not been determined. In this study, we explored the hypothesis that HULC contributes to malignant development by supporting abnormal lipid metabolism in hepatoma cells. HULC modulated the deregulation of lipid metabolism in HCC(More)
PURPOSE To assess whether urea-based cream (UBC) has prophylactic benefits on sorafenib-induced hand-foot skin reaction (HFSR) in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS In this randomized, open-label trial, 871 patients with advanced HCC throughout China were treated with 10% UBC three times per day plus best(More)
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. The global cancer burden (GCB) is expected to rise significantly and will disproportionately affect the less developed world (LDW). The aim of this review is to analyze the trends in GCB and describe the types, estimates, and causes of new cancer cases. The challenges and strategies associated with(More)
In China, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the second most common cancer in urban areas and first most common in rural areas. It ranks as the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in males and the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in females, with the total mortality rate of 26.26 per 100,000. Currently, people with hepatitis B virus(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in China. Evidence has shown that surgical resection and liver transplantation may offer the best potential for treating HCC but are only available to patients whose tumors are detected early. Over the past few decades, although a series of measures for standardized(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to identify whether melanoma antigen (MAGE)-1 mRNA and alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) mRNA expressed in peripheral blood could be used to predict the recurrence and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after hepatectomy. METHODS One hundred and forty-two HCC patients underwent hepatectomy. The control group includes 27(More)
Overexpression of CUB domain-containing protein 1 (CDCP1), a transmembrane glycoprotein and major substrate of Src family kinases (SFKs), always indicates unfavorable outcomes in various cancers. The characteristics of CDCP1 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have not been assessed. Most recently, CDCP1 was identified as a specific target gene of HIF-2α in(More)
OBJECTIVE Sorafenib is the only effective drug for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but few data predictive of its effectiveness are available. To address this issue we analyzed the relationship between risk factors associated with sorafenib treatment and overall survival (OS). METHODS Forty patients with advanced HCC were treated with sorafenib.(More)
