Title:Hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy for liver metastases from gastric cancer: an analysis in western patients
Creators Name:Floercken, A. and Schaefer, C. and Bichev, D. and Breithaupt, K. and Dogan, Y. and Schumacher, G. and Gebauer, B. and Riess, H. and Doerken, B. and Thuss-Patience, P.C.
Abstract:The advantage of administering chemotherapy by hepatic arterial infusion is the achievement of high drug concentrations in the liver. Oxaliplatin, irinotecan and 5-flourouracil are active agents in advanced gastric cancer. Therefore a retrospective analysis was performed to investigate the effects of these drugs administered by hepatic arterial infusion in heavily pretreated gastric cancer patients with predominant hepatic metastases. Very limited data about hepatic arterial infusion exist in western gastric cancer patients.
