Brief Summary:
This is a pilot study to evaluate the difference between the protein expression between hepatocellular carcinoma and tumor with vessel invasion in Asian patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Carcinoma, Hepatocellular Procedure: Operation Not Applicable

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 5 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Proteomic Analysis of Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma Associated With Portal Vein Thrombosis
Study Start Date : February 2009
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2010
Actual Study Completion Date : January 2010

Intervention Details:
  • Procedure: Operation
    Operation for clinically evaluated resectable hepatocelluar carcinoma. Compare the different expression of protein between tumor, non-tumor and tumor with vascular invasion part.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recurrence [ Time Frame: one year ]
    Evidence of clinically definite vascular invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma. Confirmed by operation. Compare the proteomic expression of tumor, non-tumor ans tumor tissue in vascular part.
