RATIONALE: Internal radiation therapy uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Using radiolabeled glass beads to kill tumor cells may be effective treatment for liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well radiolabeled glass beads work in treating patients with liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Liver Cancer||Radiation: yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres|
- Provide supervised access to treatment with yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere®) to eligible patients with cancer of the liver who are not candidates for surgical resection.
- Evaluate patient experience and toxicities associated with yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere®) treatment.
OUTLINE: This is a humanitarian device exemption use study.
Patients receive yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere®) into the liver tumor through a percutaneously placed catheter into the hepatic artery. Patients may receive additional treatment 4-12 weeks after initial treatment at the discretion of the study physician.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 2 weeks, 30 days, and then once a year for approximately 2 years.
|Study Type :||Observational|
