Hepatocellular Cancer Clinical Trials
Hepatocellular Cancer is the medical term for liver cancer. This type of cancer is noticed mostly in men. Men in the age group 50 to 60 are more susceptible to Hepatocellular Cancer. Africans and Asians have a higher risk of having Hepatocellular Cancer.
The primary cause behind Hepatocellular Cancer is cirrhosis of lever. The cirrhosis of lever can be noticed as an after effect of excessive intake of alcohol, long-term liver inflammation, hepatitis B or C infection.
Symptoms of Hepatocellular Cancer include pain or tenderness in the abdominal part, enlarged abdomen, yellowish skin and eyes, bleeding or bruising etc.
Certain diagnostic tests are required to diagnose the Hepatocellular Cancer, other than normal physical examination. Among these abdominal CT scan, liver biopsy, liver function tests and liver scan are most commonly used diagnostic tests to determine Hepatocellular Cancer. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are not very successful methods of treatment for Hepatocellular Cancer. Surgery or liver transplant can be helpful in the earlier stage.
Clinical trials for Hepatocellular are an important step in the development of new treatments and 80 clinical trials are currently active in the United State for Hepatocellular. These clinical trials are being conducted in 107 cities and are being performed by 99 different clinical trial investigators (doctors who conduct and supervise the clinical study). There are currently 85 different interventions being investigated in Hepatocellular clinical trials. A total of 15 Phase I, 28 Phase II and 7 Phase III clinical trials are currently active for Hepatocellular (the phases represent the different stage in the development of a treatment for a given condition.
