In preclinical studies, 5-fluorouracil, one of the active metabolites of S-1, showed synergistic effect to sorafenib in human colon carcinoma cell lines. Therefore, sorafenib combined with S-1 might be more effective treatment for patients with advanced HCC than sorafenib monotherapy. The investigators propose to conduct a phase I study to determine maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of S-1 in combination with fixed dose of sorafenib in patients with advanced HCC
Drug: sorafenib, TS-1
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

- MTD [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
1. To determine maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of S-1 combined with fixed dose of sorafenib 400mg twice daily.
1. To evaluate toxicity profiles and dose-limiting toxicity (DLT)
