The purpose of this study is to see if treatment with intrahepatic chemotherapy is a good options in patients with liver metastases. If the patients have colorectal cancer and never had got chemotherapy the investigators will use oxaliplatin together with capecitabine. If the patient is K-RAS wild type the investigators will add cetuximab. In patients who had received oxaliplatin or in patients with other cancers the investigators will use mitomycin and gemcitabine together with capecitabine.

  • Progression free survival, adverse events [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: July 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Mitomycin+Gemcitabine
Intrahepatic treatment, where all standard treatments have been used
Drug: Oxaliplatin
oxaliplatin 85 mg/m2 in 10 minutes
Other Names:
  • Mitomycin c
  • Gemcitabine
Drug: Mitomycin + Gemcitabine
Mitomycin 5 mg/m2 Gemcitabine 1000 mg/m2
Other Names:
  • Mitomycin c
  • Gemcitabine

Detailed Description:

Two regiment are used: N.B. The two regiments will be reported separately

  1. Mitomycin + Gemcitabine intrahepatic together with Capecitabine. This treatment can be offered patients with solid tumors where all standard treatments have been used. The patients are not allowed to have extrahepatic disease. The purpose of the treatment are to prolonged life.
  2. FOLFOX where oxaliplatin is given intrahepatic each second time. The treatment are only for patients with colorectal cancer where cure is possible but resection straight ahead is not possible. The patients are allowed to have their colorectal cancer in situ for operation latter on. If the patients are KRAS Wild-type, cetuximab are added.
