HepaSphere™ Microspheres, however, have been CE marked in the European Union since 2007 for embolization of liver cancer and hepatic metastases, with or without delivery of doxorubicin. In the United States, QuadraSphere® is cleared by the FDA for embolization of hypervascularized tumors and peripheral arteriovenous malformations.

Surgical removal is not possible for more than two-thirds of primary liver cancer patients and 90 percent of patients with secondary liver cancer. According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI), no standard treatment currently exists for liver cancer when tumors cannot be surgically removed and liver transplantation is not a viable option.

In a related presentation, Diane K.

This pilot study evaluated tumor response and safety of liver chemoembolization combined with an antiangiogenic drug that works by preventing new blood vessel growth. The data showed treatment was well tolerated, with progression-free survival of 16 months.
