Expansion of Conventional Criteria for Liver Transplantation in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Through Downstaging



Phase 2/Phase 3

Unknown status
This clinical trial is aimed at extending the chance of liver transplantation, through downstaging procedures, to patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) exceeding conventional Milan Criteria. Those patients that will achieve a sustained tumor response after downstaging will be randomized either to undergo liver transplantation or to proceed with conventional non-transplant treatments. The aim of the study is to demonstrate unequivocally that liver transplantation may provide a survival benefit, with an acceptable survival rate of at least 60% at 5 years, to patients that demonstrate a radiological and sustained tumor response after downstaging. Noteworthy is that response is chosen rather than stage migration as endpoint of downstaging.
