Further study details as provided by Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • tumor recurrence and metastasis [ Time Frame: within the first year after liver transplantation ]
    Examination of tumor recurrence include serum levels of alpha-fetoprotein(AFP), chest radiography, abdominal ultrasonography, chest or abdominal computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and bone scintigraphy

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Postoperative survival [ Time Frame: within the first year after liver transplantation ]
    Postoperative survival include rates of disease-free survival (DFS), overall survival(OS), tumor recurrence and death.
