Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Study Of Intrahepatic Arterial Injection of 90-Y Glass Microspheres As First-Line Treatment For Cholangiocarcinoma|
- Median Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: End of post treatment follow-up period of 20 months ]PFS is defined as the duration of time from enrollment to time of progression or death from any cause. Progression will be defined as progressive disease in the treated lobe. If progression is seen in a treated lobe, this will be considered a treatment failure. Progressive Disease (PD) according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST) Version 1.1.: At least a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter (LD) of target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum LD recorded since the treatment started or the appearance of one or more new lesions.
- Median Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]OS is defined as the duration of time from enrollment to time of death from any cause.
- Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: End of post treatment follow-up period of up to 20 months ]Tumor Response according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1. Complete Response (CR): Complete disappearance of all target and non-target lesions; no new lesions. Partial Response (PR): Applies only to patients with at least one measurable lesion; Greater than or equal to 30% decrease under baseline of the sum of appropriate diameters of all target measurable lesions; No unequivocal progression of non-measurable disease; No new lesions.

Experimental: Arterial Injection of 90-Y Microspheres
Intrahepatic Arterial Injection of 90-Y Glass Microspheres as First-Line Treatment For Cholangiocarcinoma
Device: TheraSphere® Yttrium-90 (Y-90) Microspheres
Y-90 is incorporated into very tiny glass beads called microspheres and is injected into the liver through the blood vessels supplying the liver.
The goal of treatment with TheraSphere is to allow a large dose of radiation to be delivered directly to the tumor with less risk of toxic effects from radiation to other parts of the body or to healthy liver tissue when compared with currently available treatments.
The standard treatment for cholangiocarcinoma is surgery (if possible), external beam radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. External beam radiation therapy to the liver may reduce symptoms, but only 20% of patients experience significant tumor shrinkage. Chemotherapy has response rates ranging from 6-19%. More recently, a new approach has been developed, called TheraSphere. Based on the results of earlier studies with TheraSphere, the study doctors at Moffitt feel this is a reasonable alternative to the standard treatment for this disease.
TheraSphere has restricted approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of hepatocellular liver cancer; but it has not yet been approved for the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma. TheraSphere is a medical device containing yttrium-90 (Y-90), a radioactive material that has been used previously in the treatment of liver tumors. Y-90 is incorporated into very tiny glass beads called microspheres and is injected into the liver through the blood vessels supplying the liver.
