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 Intervention
Carcinoma, Hepatocellular Procedure: Operation

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: 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

Further study details as provided by Meng-Tzu Weng, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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.

Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: February 2009
Study Completion Date: January 2010
Primary Completion Date: January 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
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.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Arm A: Hepatocellular carcinoma with vessel invasion:
