Despite the hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAI) has been advocated as an effective therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with multiple intrahepatic metastases, chemosensitivity of HCC for HAI with multidrug regimen has not been sufficiently investigated. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the in vitro chemosensitivity of HCC using 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyl-2H-tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay with the combinations of various antitumor drugs, and compared with… CONTINUE READING
