  • Recurrence rate [ Time Frame: 2,3,5years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: April 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: antiviral group
Drug: antiviral treatment(lamivudine or entecavir) after the Procedure/Surgery (radical resection of HBV-related HCC)
Drug: antiviral treatment (lamivudine or entecavir)
antiviral treatment (lamivudine 100mg per day or entecavir 0.5mg per day)
Procedure: radical resection of HBV-related HCC
Procedure/Surgery - radical resection of HBV-related HCC
Active Comparator: control group
Procedure/Surgery (radical resection of HBV-related HCC) without Drug of antiviral treatment - close observation without antiviral treatment
Procedure: radical resection of HBV-related HCC
Procedure/Surgery - radical resection of HBV-related HCC

Detailed Description:
As we know, recurrence and metastasis could happen in hepatocellular carcinoma even after radical resection.One reason is that virus hepatitis B could be one factor contributing to the carcinogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma.To investigated whether anti-viral therapy could improve the efficacy of radical resection of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC),we planed to conduct this clinical trial.
