Chemoembolization by selective intra-arterial infusion of mitomycin C in microcapsule form exerts potential therapeutic effects through infarction and prolonged activity. Of 20 patients with inoperable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated with one or more courses via a hepatic arterial catheter, a change in tumor size could be measured in 16. Measurable tumor regression amounting to greater than 50% was shown in 6 patients (38%), 25-50% in 3 (19%), and less than or equal to 25% in 6 (38… CONTINUE READING
