About

This study is working to research the efficacy and significant of the anti-virus therapy in the unresectable Hepatitis B virus (HBV) related primary liver cancer(PLC) so as to establish treatment standards of anti-virus therapy in PLC.

Full description

primary liver cancer(PLC)is one of the world's most common malignancies, especially in East-Asian countries.Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is associated with 70-90% of PLC cases in China. PLC can develop during any stage of the natural course of chronic HBV infection and anti-virus therapy should be considered during the management of PLC. However, there is no definite guide on when or how to practice the anti-virus therapy, especially in unresectable or inoperable PLC. Because of these facts, research on the significant of the anti-virus therapy in the HBV-related PLC is urgently needed. 200 patients will be randomly assigned to anti-virus therapy group and control gruop.The time to progression(TTP) and overall survival within two years will be used to evaluate the effect of anti-virus therapy on PLC. The aim of this study is to research the efficacy and significant of the anti-virus therapy in the unresectable HBV-related PLC so as to establish treatment standards of anti-virus therapy in PLC.
