Radiolabeled Glass Beads in Treating Patients With Metastatic Liver Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
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 metastatic liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.

- Patient experience and toxicity associated with TheraSphere® treatment [ Time Frame: During & at completion of treatment. ]Evaluate patient experience and toxicities associated with TheraSphere® treatment.
|Study Start Date:||December 2004|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||April 2019|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||April 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Patients with metastatic cancer of the liver who are not surgical resection candidates and who will be treated with TheraSphere per institutional standard of care.
Radiation: Yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres
Between 0.2 to 0.5 Curies (200-500-mCi), either single dose to the whole liver, or lobar treatment delivered as a sequence of treatments approximately 30 -90 days apart per treating physician's discretion.
- Provide supervised access to treatment with yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere®) to eligible patients who are not candidates for surgical resection of metastatic intrahepatic carcinoma.
- Evaluate patient experience and toxicities associated with yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres 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 therapy 4-12 weeks after initial treatment at the discretion of the study physician.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed at 2 weeks, 30 days, and then once a year for approximately 2 years.
