Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The safety of Nexavar in all patients with unresectable HCC who are candidates for systemic therapy and in whom a decision to treat with Nexavar has been made under real-life practice conditions [ Time Frame: at each follow-up visit, every 2-4 months on average ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy [overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), time to progression (TTP), response rate (RR), stable disease(SD) rate] by the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor (RECIST) Criteria of Nexavar [ Time Frame: at every visit, roughly every 2-4 months ]
  • The duration of therapy with Nexavar in a variety of settings according to patient characteristics and other variables [ Time Frame: at every visit, roughly every 2-4 months ]
  • To evaluate the methods of patient evaluation, diagnosis and follow up [ Time Frame: at every visit, roughly every 2-4 months ]
  • To evaluate the co-morbidities in patients with unresectable HCC and their influence on treatment and outcome [ Time Frame: at every visit, roughly every 2-4 months ]
  • To evaluate the practice patterns of the physicians involved in the care of patients with HCC under real-life conditions [ Time Frame: at every visit, roughly every 2-4 months ]
  • Reports of adverse events [ Time Frame: at every visit, roughly every 2-4 months ]

Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients with unresectable HCC who are candidates for systemic therapy and in whom a decision to treat with Nexavar has been made under real-life practice conditions and in a variety of patient subsets.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Outpatients with histologically/cytologically documented or radiographically diagnosed unresectable HCC who are candidates for systemic therapy and for whom a decision to treat with Nexavar has been made. Radiographic diagnosis HCC NIS, needs typical findings of HCC by radiographic method i.e. on multi-dimensional, dynamic CT, CT hepatic arteriography (CTHA)/CT arterial portography (CTAP), or MRI.
  • Patients must have signed an informed consent form
  • Patients must have a life expectancy of at least 8 weeks

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Exclusion criteria must follow the approved local product information
