Yttrium Y 90 Radiolabeled Glass Beads in Treating Patients With Liver Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery
RATIONALE: Internal radiation therapy uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Using radiolabeled glass beads to kill tumor cells may be effective treatment for liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
PURPOSE: To provide expanded access and study the side effects of yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres in treating patients with liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.

|Official Title:||A Treatment of Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma With TheraSphere (Yttrium-90 Glass Microspheres): A HDE Treatment Use Protocol|
|Study Start Date:||April 2007|
|Study Completion Date:||September 2014|
|Primary Completion Date:||September 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Provide supervised access to treatment with yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere®) to eligible patients with primary cancer to the liver and who are not surgical resection candidates.
- Evaluate patient experience and toxicities associated with TheraSphere® treatment.
- Enter treatment experience into a liver database.
- Determine the tumor response rates in patients receiving this treatment.
OUTLINE: This is a humanitarian device exemption use study.
Patients receive yttrium Y 90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere®) via percutaneous hepatic arterial infusion. Patients may be retreated between 30-90 days after the initial infusion.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed for 30 days and then annually thereafter for up to 2 years.
