|Brief Title ICMJE||Doxorubicin By Infusion or Chemoembolization in Treating Patients With Advanced Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma (Liver Cancer)|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Randomized Clinical Trial Evaluating the Benefits of Doxorubicin Chemoembolization Versus Systemic Doxorubicin in Patients With Unresectable, Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping the cells from dividing. Chemoembolization kills tumor cells by blocking the blood flow to the tumor and keeping chemotherapy drugs near the tumor. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin is more effective with or without chemoembolization in treating unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer).
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying doxorubicin given by infusion to see how well it works compared to doxorubicin given by chemoembolization in treating patients with advanced liver cancer than cannot be removed by surgery.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, controlled, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to participating center, stage of disease, and alpha-fetoprotein levels (< 500 ng/mL vs ≥ 500 ng/mL). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline and at weeks 10 and 24.
Patients are followed at 4 weeks and then every 12 weeks thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 280 patients (140 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study.
