Chemoembolization of Tumors

Chemoembolization Therapies

Chemoembolization is a regional treatment of the liver for various types of liver cancers. In this treatment, special drug eluting beads loaded with highly concentrated chemotherapy (often doxorubicin, irinotecan or gemzar) are injected into the hepatic artery feeding the tumor. The chemotherapy elutes out over time providing dramatically superior pharmacokinetics and far less systemic toxicity. Traditionally, metastatic colorectal carcinoma, neuroendocrine tumors, sarcomas, breast cancer, ocular melanoma and primary hepatoma and cholangiocarcinoma are the commonest tumor types treated. Two randomized controlled studies showed in 2003 that chemoembolization does prolong survival in patients with HCC.
