The Efficacy and Prognostic Factors of the Combination of TACE and Apatinib for the Treatment of BCLC Stage C Hepatocellular Carcinoma (Frontiers in Medicine)
 


Objective: Apatinib is a inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2. To explore the efficacy and prognostic factors of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) combined with apatinib in the treatment of Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer stage C (BCLC C) hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).Methods: Clinical data of 146 HCC patients with BCLC stage C admitted to our hospital were collected and analyzed retrospectively, of which 76 cases were treated with TACE combined with apatinib (TACE-apatinib) and 70 with TACE alone. The tumor response, survival time, and adverse events were compared between the two groups, and the factors affecting the prognosis were analyzed.Results: The objective response rate (ORR) and disease control rate (DCR) in the TACE-apatinib group were higher than in the TACE-alone group (ORR: 42.10 vs. 25.71%, P = 0.03; DCR: 84.21 vs. 55.71%, P = 0.001). The median time to progression (TTP) and overall survival (OS) in the TACE-apatinib group were longer than in the TACE-alone group (TTP: 5.5 vs. 3.7 months, P = 0.02; OS: 10.0 vs. 6.2 months, P = 0.01). Univariate and multivariate Cox regression analysis showed that tumor size, Child-Pugh class, and the presence of the portal vein tumor thrombus affect the prognosis of patients. Subgroup analysis revealed that TACE-apatinib therapy resulted in a higher OS in patients with tumor size
