|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hepatocellular Carcinoma Hepatocellular Carcinoma Non-resectable||Device: Holmium-166 radioembolization||Phase 2|
• To establish the safety and toxicity profile of holmium radioembolization in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
- To evaluate efficacy of holmium radioembolization in hepatocellular carcinoma without curative treatment options in a non-comparative phase II study.
- To evaluate tumor marker response.
- To evaluate Quality of Life (QoL).
- To evaluate biodistribution / dosimetry.
- To evaluate hepatic function.
Study design: Multi-center, interventional, treatment, non-randomized, open label, non-comparative, early phase II study. The study is a collaboration between UMC Utrecht and Erasmus MC Rotterdam. Recruitment and treatment of patients will take place in both centers.
Intervention: Holmium radioembolization will be performed via a catheter during angiography.

|Official Title:||Holmium-166-radioembolization in Patients With Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC); a Multi-center, Interventional, Non-randomized, Non-comparative, Open Label, Early Phase II Study: HEPAR Primary|

|Experimental: Holmium-166 radioembolization||
Device: Holmium-166 radioembolization
An intra-arterial radioembolization procedure will be performed. The hepatic artery catheter is inserted via the femoral or radial artery under x-ray guidance by a trained interventional radiologist. The radiologist must repeatedly check the position of the catheter during the procedure to ensure it remains correctly sited and that reflux of the QuiremSpheres® into other organs does not occur. This is performed by injecting contrast medium. At the conclusion of the procedure, the catheter is removed.
