First International Symposium on Treatment of Liver Cancer Kobe, Japan, 15–16 November 1987 Session 4: Panel Discussion Hepatic Artery Infusion, Infusion Chemotherapy, 5-Fluorouracil, MItomycin C


A group of 213 patients with advanced primary hepatic carcinomas and 353 patients with metastatic liver cancers were treated by the prolonged intra-arterial infusion of mitomycin C and 5-fluorouracil through a surgically placed catheter over a period of time from 1966 to 1987. Regionalized chemotherapy by hepatic arterial infusion for hepatic cancer produced a greater degree and higher incidence of response than are obtainable through systemic administration. Intra-arterial infusion chemotherapy seems to offer an exciting new avenue of approach to the control of hepatic cancer.
