Adult Primary Liver Cancer Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Health Professional Information [NCI] - Advanced Adult Primary Liver Cancer
For patients with any T, N1, M1 disease.
There is no standard therapy for patients with advanced metastatic liver cancer. Such patients should be considered candidates for clinical trials exploring the usefulness of new biologicals or antitumor drugs (phase I and II studies) or combinations of existing drugs, radiosensitizers, and radiation therapy. Palliation may sometimes be achieved in such studies.
