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.

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.
