    Summary:【PURPOSE】 Sorafenib is a molecularly-targeted drug, which have been proven survival benefit for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Because of the unique side effects of sorafenib such as hand-foot skin reaction (HFSR), the administration of sorafenib is often discontinued. We compared the efficacy of overall survival (OS) in the view of the duration of stable disease (SD). 【METHODS】 112 patients with advanced HCC have been treated with sorafenib in our hospital. They were evaluated the antitumor response according to the modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor. We compared the relationship between the duration of SD and OS. 【RESULTS】 Complete response (CR) was observed in 2 patients, partial response (PR) in 16 patients, SD in 36 patients and progression disease (PD) in 27 patients, respectively. CR+PR patients (CR+PR group) had Child-Pugh A/B=18/0, BCLC stage A/B/C=3/6/9 and HBV/HCV/NBNC=6/8/4. SD patients (SD group) had Child-Pugh A/B=30/6, BCLC stage A/B/C=16/6/14 and HBV/HCV/NBNC=5/20/11. In the SD group the median duration of SD was 3.3 months. The SD group was divided into two groups; less than three months defined as Short SD and more than three months defined as Long SD. We compared the relationship of overall survival between the group of PR, Long SD, and Short SD. In the Short SD group, the median OS was 6.2 months (95%C.I. 4.7-7.3). In the Long SD group, the median OS was 17.6 months (95%C.I. 10.4-23.6). In the CR+PR Group, the median OS was 19.1 months (95%C.I. 14.2-23.8). There was not statistically significant difference between the OS of CR+PR group and the OS of Long SD group, however, there was statistically significant difference between the OS of Long SD group and the OS of Short SD group. 【CONCLUSION】 In the treatment of sorafenib for advanced HCC, long duration of SD improves the OS as same as CR+PR. Controlling the unique side effects of sorafenib such as HFSR is important to obtain the longer treatment duration.
  • Comparison of tumor response in patients treated with sorafenib for hepatocellular carcinoma, ARIZUMI Tadaaki, UESHIMA Kazuomi, TAKEDA Haruhiko, OSAKI Yukio, HAGIWARA Satoru, INOUE Tatsuo, KITAI Satoshi, YADA Norihisa, SAKURAI Toshiharu, NISHIDA Naoshi, KUDO Masatoshi, Kanzo, 肝臓, 53(6), 344 - 347, Jun. 25 2012
    Summary:Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumor version 1.1 (RECIST1.1), modified RECIST (mRECIST) and Response Evaluation Criteria In Cancer of the Liver (RECICL) are frequently used as a response evaluation criteria for hepatocellular carcinoma. The overall survival (OS) of the patients treated with sorafenib was evaluated among these criteria respectively. In patients treated with sorafenib over 30 days, OS was stratified by RECICL and mRECIST, but not stratified by RECIST1.1. There was a statistically significant difference in RECICL (p=0.0133). In patients treated with sorafenib over 60 days, OS was also stratified by RECICL and mRECIST, but not stratified by RECIST1.1. There was also a statistically significant difference in the RECICL (p=0.0173). In patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma treated with sorafenib, evaluation of the tumor necrosis is considered very important and bidimensional measurement is necessary to measure viable area more precisely. RECICL which evaluates the tumor necrosis and includes bidimensional measurement may be considered the most useful criteria to predict the prognosis in the evaluation of treatment with sorafenib.
  • A case of chronic hepatitis B which achieved hepatitis B surface antigen seroclearance during combination therapy with peginterferon alfa-2b and entecavir, INUZUKA Tadashi, OSAKI Yukio, MATSUDA Fumihiro, SAKAMOTO Azusa, HATAMARU Keiichi, HENMI Shinichiro, ISHIKAWA Tetsuro, SAITO Sumio, NISHIKAWA Hiroki, KITA Ryuichi, OKABE Yoshihiro, KIMURA Toru, WAKASA Tomoko, HAGIWARA Satoru, KUDO Masatoshi, Kanzo, 肝臓, 53(1), 42 - 47, Jan. 25 2012
    Summary:A 65-year-old Japanese male with chronic hepatitis B (CH-B) diagnosed in December 2008 was referred to our department in July 2009. He started combination therapy with peginterferon alfa-2b (80 μg/week) and entecavir (0.5 mg/day) for 48 weeks from December 2009. At the initiation of therapy, his significant laboratory test results were as follows: alanine aminotransferase (ALT) 55 IU/l, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) 37 IU/l, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) positive, hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) positive, hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA levels 7.9 Log copies/ml. HBV DNA, HBsAg and HBeAg levels decreased progressively with therapy. After 36 weeks, HBV DNA, AST and ALT levels flared up, but after 44 weeks, HBV DNA levels decreased below 2.1 Log copies/ml and HBeAg seroconversion and HBsAg seroclearance were achieved. After 72 weeks he maintained HBsAg seroclearance and achieved a sustained viral response. Cases of spontaneous HBsAg seroclearance have been reported previously, but HBsAg seroclearance caused by combination therapy with peginterferon alfa-2b and entecavir has not been reported. Pre- and post-treatment cccDNA load in liver tissue, hepatitis B virus core-related antigen (HBcrAg) concentration in serum and expression of hepatitis B core antigen (HBcAg) in hepatocyte were compared, and it was found that all were drastically decreased. The present study suggests that these reduction appeared to contribute to the successful outcome of this therapy.

    Summary:膵管内乳頭粘液性腫瘍(IPMN)を疑う病変に対する初回精査として、腹部造影CTや磁気共鳴胆道膵管造影(MRCP)が用いられる。IPMNと診断されれば、次にhigh-risk stigmataやworrisome featureなどの悪性を示唆する所見の有無に関する診断が重要となる。IPMN/MCN国際診療ガイドライン2012年版(GL2012)では、worrisome featureを有する分枝型IPMNに対しては、超音波内視鏡(EUS)による精査が推奨されている。EUSにて悪性を疑う所見がなければ、経過観察の方針となる。GL2012年では、EUSによる経過観察の対象は、嚢胞径2cm以上の分枝型IPMNである。このように比較的大きな病変に対しては、IPMNの詳細な観察が可能なEUSを用いる方針となっている。一方、IPMNの経過観察を行ううえではIPMN併存膵癌の発生にも注意を要する。経過観察群からのIPMN併存膵癌の診断においても、EUSは重要性の高い検査であると考えられる。IPMN併存膵癌の発生の可能性を考慮した場合、EUSによる経過観察の対象や検査間隔については再考の余地がある。本当にリスクの高い症例に対して積極的にEUSを行うこと、これが未来のIPMNの経過観察の形になるであろう。(著者抄録)

    Summary:膵・胆管合流異常に合併した共通管内乳頭状腫瘍の1例を報告する.症例は75歳の男性で,6ヵ月間に2度の急性膵炎を発症し保存的加療で軽快した.急性膵炎の原因精査および加療目的で当院へ紹介となった.ERCPでは膵・胆管合流異常を認め,共通管内に7mmの結節様陰影欠損像を認めた.上部内視鏡検査では乳頭部からの粘液排出は認めず,超音波内視鏡検査では共通管内に乳頭状の腫瘍が描出された.造影CTでは膵頭部に拡張した共通管と内部に増強効果を持つ8mmの腫瘤を認めた.尾側の主膵管の拡張は認めなかった.膵・胆管合流異常に合併した共通管内乳頭状腫瘍と診断し,亜全胃温存膵頭十二指腸切除術を施行した.病理肉眼所見では共通管内に発育する有茎性の乳頭状腫瘍で,組織像は管状構造増生を主体とする腺腫であった.免疫組織学的染色ではMUC1,MUC2陰性,MUC5AC陽性で胃型腺腫と最終診断した.(著者抄録)
  • 肝細胞癌に対するUS-US overlay fusionを用いたラジオ波焼灼術の有用性, 南 知宏, 南 康範, 千品 寛和, 有住 忠晃, 田北 雅弘, 矢田 典久, 萩原 智, 依田 広, 上嶋 一臣, 西田 直生志, 工藤 正俊, 肝臓, 59, 2, 142, 144,   2018 02 , 10.2957/kanzo.59.142
    Summary:肝細胞癌に対しUS-US overlay fusionを用いてラジオ波焼灼術(RFA)を行った53例68結節を対象に、US-US overlay fusionの有用性を検討した。早期の治療効果判定として、RFA後2〜3日以内に造影CTを撮像し、US-US overlay fusionでの評価と比較した。その結果、US-US overlay fusionガイドでFRA治療を行ったところ、全例が1セッションでtechnical successを達成した。穿刺回数は平均1.9回であり、造影CT/MRIによる早期治療効果判定として、5mm以上のsafety marginが確保できたのは86.5%(56/68結節)であった。早期効果判定をgold standardとして、US-US overlay fusionによるablative margin評価の正診率は92.6%(63/68結節)であった。術後に重篤な早期合併症は認めなかった。以上、US-US overlay fusionによって超音波画像での3次元的なablative marginの評価がRFA治療中に行えるようになり、精度の高いRFA治療(precision RFA)を提供することが可能であると考えられた。

  • A flare of hepatitis B in a patient with HBV-HCV co-infection during the combination therapy of pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) α2a and ribavirin, Miyata Hiroshi, Miyata Satoru, Kudo Masatoshi, Kanzo, 53, 12, 846, 852,   2012 , 10.2957/kanzo.53.846, http://ci.nii.ac.jp/naid/130003343869
    Summary:In Japan the number of patients who are co-infected with hepatitis B and C virus is little. On the other hand there are many reports in the world that HBV reactivation often occur in the co-infected patients at the end of treatment or after IFN with ribavirin therapy. But the flare of hepatitis B is rare during combination therapy. In this case report, hepatitis B virus was reactivated and the flare happened in the middle of the therapy of IFNα2a with ribavirin, although HBV-DNA before treatment had been negative. To avoid the next flare entecavir was medicated. And then hepatitis B settled down. It suggests that entecavir would be effective if the flare of hepatitis B occurred.
  • The status of polycystic liver disease in Japan : a questionnaire survey of patients, OGAWA Koichi, FUKUNAGA Kiyoshi, TAKEUCHI Tomoyo, KAWAGISHI Naoki, KUDO Masatoshi, OHKOUCHI Nobuhiro, Kanzo, 52, 11, 709, 715,   2011 11 25 , 10.2957/kanzo.52.709, http://ci.nii.ac.jp/naid/10030240464
    Summary:Polycystic liver disease (PLD) is genetic disorder characterized by the progressive development of multiple liver cysts. Because of rarity of PLD, therapeutic consensus is controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate a situation of PLD treatment by a questionnaire survey. In this study, 422 patients with PLD participated, and 223 patients underwent treatment. The most common symptom was abdominal distension (73%). The treatments were performed as follows; percutaneous aspiration in 27% of patients, liver resection in 12%, cyst fenestration in 9%, and liver transplantation in 3%. The efficacies of these treatments were recognized in 77%, 96%, 92%, and 100% of each patient, respectively. Because of no effect of primary therapy, additional treatment was performed in only 4.3% of patients. In general, the choice of primary treatment for PLD was considered reasonable and proper, in Japan.

    Summary:The development of the second generation ultrasound contrast Sonazoid which produces a second harmonic component with low acoustic power has enabled vascular assessment in the field of EUS. With the use of the echoendoscope provided by OLYMPUS-ALOKA, contrast-enhanced EUS is performed in the eFLOW mode which depicts fine vessels without Doppler-related artifacts or in the ExPHD mode which enables perfusion imaging by selective depiction of signals from microbubbles. The echoendoscope should be manipulated in order to position it as close to the target lesion as possible. Contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS depicts fine vessels in the lesions 10-20 seconds after the infusion, and subsequently parenchymal perfusion with strong contrast with the pancreatic duct, biliary system and surrounding tissue. In the pancreato-biliary region, contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS is useful for detection and characterization of small lesions, particularly discrimination between benign and malignant lesions. In GISTs, specific tumor vessels can be observed with contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS. It is also useful for differentiation between benign and malignant lymphadenopathy. Visualization of the microcirculation and perfusion imaging in EUS which has high spatial resolution may further improve imaging of the digestive organs.
  • PIVKA-II is a predictive marker in the treatment response of sorafenib to hepatocellular carcinoma, UESHIMA Kazuomi, KUDO Masatoshi, Kanzo, 51, 11, 681, 683,   2010 11 25 , 10.2957/kanzo.51.681, http://ci.nii.ac.jp/naid/10027661655
    Summary:Fifty patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were treated with sorafenib. In 25 of the patients, serum levels of protein induced by vitamin K absence or antagonist II (PIVKA-II) were evaluated at two time points (pretreatment and within 2 weeks from initial treatment). The time to progression in the "PIVKA-II-elevated group" (PIVKA-II more than two times pretreatment levels) was significantly longer than that in the "non-elevated group" (10.0 months [95%CI: 8.5-11.5] vs 5.7 months [95%CI: 3.3-8.1]; p=0.0296). It has been reported that hypoxia induces PIVKA-II in HCC cells. HCC treated with sorafenib are exposed to hypoxia caused by an antiangiogenic effect. Therefore, serum levels of PIVKA-II are a surrogate marker of tissue hypoxia and accordingly a predictive marker of treatment response by sorafenib.
  • Non-invasive evaluation method of the liver fibrosis using Real-time tissue elastograpy : Usefulness of judgment liver fibrosis stage by Liver fibrosis index (LF index), FUJIMOTO Kenji, KATO Michio, TONOMURA Akiko, YADA Norihisa, TATSUMI Chie, OSHITA Masahide, WADA Shigeo, UESHIMA Kazuomi, ISHIDA Tetsushi, FURUTA Tomoko, YAMASAKI Masaru, TSUJIMOTO Masahiko, MOTOKI Mitsuru, MITAKE Tsuyoshi, KIM Shigehiro, YAMAMOTO Keiji, SHIINA Tsuyoshi, KUDO Masatoshi, HAYASHI Norio, Kanzo, 51, 9, 539, 541,   2010 09 25 , 10.2957/kanzo.51.539, http://ci.nii.ac.jp/naid/10027469802
    Summary:To evaluate the effectiveness of Real-time Tissue Elastography (RTE) in staging of liver fibrosis non-invasively, we performed RTE on 310 patients with chronic hepatitis C (and/or liver cirrhosis) and 15 healthy volunteers. Nine image features were extracted from each RTE image and a multiple regression analysis was then performed to derive the regression equation. This equation calculates Liver Fibrosis Index (LF Index), which in turn predicts F stage of the liver. LF Index not only correlates highly with the F stage (r=0.68) of the liver fibrosis, but also it shows significant differences in LF Index values (p<0.001) between each stage of the fibrosis. Thus, we can conclude that RTE is a promising method to evaluate the liver fibrosis noninvasively.
  • Elevated serum ALT levels following hyperferritinemia in CHC patients receiving pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) therapy and availability of phlebotomy, MIYATA Hiroshi, MIYATA Satoru, KUDO Masatoshi, Kanzo, 51, 7, 371, 378,   2010 07 25 , 10.2957/kanzo.51.371, http://ci.nii.ac.jp/naid/10026515290
    Summary:Elevated serum ALT levels sometimes have been observed in CHC patients receiving pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) therapy. However the reason for this elevation hasn't been clarified and in these cases we often hasitate to continue PEG-IFN therapy. We experienced three ALT-elavated cases following hyperferritinemia. And in one of them phlebotomy was performed. PEG-IFN therapy is very useful for viral elimination, remission of hepatitis, and suppression of HCC. However when serum ALT levels elevate following hyperferritinemia, it is speculated that activity of hepatitis and liver fibrosis become worse. In such cases phlebotomy may be effective.

    Summary:The patients (n=75) in this study had chronic hepatitis C with high viral loads of serum HCV-RNA genotype 1b. All the patients received a regimen of pegylated interferon α-2b plus ribavirin (PEG IFN α-2b/RBV) for 48 weeks. Comparative analysis was done by dividing these patients into two groups by age: Elderly group (over 65 years old, 23 patients) and Non-Elderly group (under 65 years old, 52 patients). The sustained viral response (SVR) rate in the Elderly (37.5%, 6/16) was not different significantly from that in the Non-Elderly (50%, 20/40). The response ratio of 2´-5´-oligoadenylate synthetase (2-5AS), the viral dynamics and the rate of discontinuation of therapy were not different between the two groups. Interestingly, however, the mean α-fetoprotein (AFP) values decreased significantly in the Elderly irrespective of SVR or non-SVR (from 10.1±9.55 ng/ml before treatment to 5.18±4.52 ng/ml after treatment, P<0.05), but did not in the Non-Elderly. It was thus suggested that Peg IFN α-2b/RBV would be useful in the prevention of HCC in elderly patients including non-SVR cases.

    Summary:"Clinical practice guidelines for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)," the first evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of HCC in Japan (the J-HCC Guidelines) have been compiled and English translation has just been completed (http://www.jsh.or.jp/). In March 2006, approximately a year after publication of the J-HCC Guideline Book, a questionnaire survey was conducted to investigate the level of awareness and influence of the guidelines among 2,279 members of the Liver Cancer Study Group of Japan. Of the 843 responders (37.0%), the J-HCC Guidelines have been acknowledged by 72% and 78.8% considered the guidelines useful for their daily practice. Algorithm for the treatment was most commonly used. After the introduction of the guidelines, only 20.8% of the responders changed their practice pattern; 40.3% did not change and were convinced that their choice of treatment was similar to the recommendations in the guidelines. In conclusion, one year after their publication, the J-HCC Guidelines have become well disseminated among specialists for HCC in Japan. As expected, these guidelines have begun to be applied at every level of clinical decision-making for HCC.

    Summary:We have innovated new imaging technique, Defect Re-perfusion Imaging, in the Sonazoid-enhanced contrast ultrasonography (US) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which is not clearly demonstrated on B mode US. Firstly, perfusion defect can be detected on post-vascular phase imaging 10 min after intravenous injection of Sonazoid. Second, re-injection of Sonazoid clearly shows arterial hypervascularity within the defect portion if the nodule is typical HCC. Since this technique is extremely useful in the detection, treatment guidance and evaluation of treatment response for ultrasound ill-defined HCC nodules, we propose this technique should be widely used in the clinical practice of HCC.

    Summary:In this article, the concept and clinical impact of the staging systems for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were reviewed. Among the several scoring systems so far available, such as Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC), Cancer of the Liver Italian Program (CLIP), and Japan Integrated Staging (JIS) systems, the JIS system is extremely efficient in the stratification ability of the HCC patients from the very early stage through highly advanced stage of HCC: particularly in the areas like Japan, where small HCC less than 2 cm in diameter can be diagnosed based on the screening program for early detection of HCC. This efficiency of the JIS system is due to an excellent tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) staging system developed by Liver Cancer Study Group of Japan (LCSGJ). JIS system is an integated staging system between child-Pugh stage and the TNM stage by LCSGJ. Therefore, the TNM stage by LCSGJ and the JIS score is expected to be used as a global standard staging system in the near future.

    Summary:This study was undertaken to obtain the information about the present condition of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for hepatocellular carcinoma.The data of 2614 patients, who underwent RFA between January 1999 and May 2002, were gathered and analyzed in this study.RFA was performed percutaneously in 2542, raparoscopically in 23 and operatively in 49 patients.The complication rate was 7.8% (204 patients). Most popular complications were pleural effusion, ascites, biliary injury, portal thrombus, intraperitoneal hemorrhage, burn of the abdominal wall and liver abscess. The mortality rate was 0.3% (9 patients).The complication rate and mortality rate were lower in institutions which have some device for safe and accurate treatment or have much experience in RFA.

    Summary:Areas of residual tumors after RFA or PEI therapy are not distinguishable from necrotic tissues on US. The sonographic findings of gray-scale, color Doppler and power Doppler scanning after RFA or PEI therapy do not correlate well with the overall necrotic shape, or with the volume or extent of coagulation necrosis induced. Therefore, contrast-enhanced CT or MRI is generally necessary to assess the efficacy of the treatment. The absence of intensified areas on contrast-enhanced CT indicates the disappearance of the blood supply and, by inference, a successful treatment. Conversely, focal areas of persistent contrast enhancement usually indicate viable tumor cells, and, therefore, warrant further treatment to achieve a complete tumor necrosis.Harmonic gray-scale images can extract only the blood flow echoes created by destruction of microbubbles, whilst echoes from tissue are effectively cancelled. This mode makes it possible to clearly depict residual blood flow in tumors after therapy. Because contrast-enhanced harmonic sonography is easy to perform and provides real-time needle insertion guidance, it may be favored in monitoring response to localized therapies, obviating unnecessary CT and treatment sessions.Although contrast-enhanced CT can clearly depict residual areas of tumors after RFA or PEI therapy, it does not make possible real-time guidance in percutaneous therapies. Furthermore, the retention of lipiodol in HCC lesions sometimes makes it difficult to distinguish the hyperattenuating area of contrast enhancement from that of lipiodol when the retention of iodized oil in tumors is incomplete.Contrast-enhanced harmonic gray-scale images can reveal the tumor vascularity in patients with HCC, after transcatheter arterial embolization and percutaneous therapies, with high sensitivity and accuracy in comparison with dynamic CT. This capability of harmonic imaging for depicting residual cancer cells in HCCs after treatment facilitates a correct guidance for the insertion of a needle on US monitoring, which cannot be achieved by any other imaging modalities including CT and MRI.The noninvasive vascular technique of contrast-enhanced harmonic imaging is an extremely sensitive tool for detecting the intranodular blood flow in hepatic tumors. This method is drastically changing the diagnostic and therapeutic strategy of hepatic tumors, especially HCC, resulting in an eventual improvement in the prognosis of patients with HCC.

    Summary:This retrospective study was undertaken to obtain information relevant to the therapeutic strategy and therapeutic results in single hepatocellular carcinoma. Eighteen institutions located mainly in the Kinki District of Japan took part in this study.
    The data of 3489 patients, who underwent different treatments between January 1, 1987 to March 31, 1998 were gathered and analyzed in this study.
    The results are shown follows. (The end-point of clinical observation was July 31, 1998)
    (1) Surgical resection was mainly performed for HCC of clinical stage I or II regardless of the tumor size.
    (2) The difference in survival of patients with HCC measuring 2.0cm or less in diameter of clinical stage I or II between surgical resection and PEIT or PMCT was not statistically significant.
    (3) Among patients treated with PEIT, ten-year survivors were observed in patients with HCC measuring 3.0cm or less in diameter.
    (4) In patients with HCC measuring more than 3.0 cm in diameter and of clinical stage I or II, survival rates of surgical resection were superior to those of other treatments except two groups (TAE+PEIT, 3(5) Of ten-year survivors, 87% had been treated with surgical resection as a first treatment.
    (6) Of patients with HCC measuring 5.0cm or less in diameter, approximately 40% died of causes other than HCC progression.
    (7) There was a statistically significant difference in survival rates between institutions having 100 cases or more, and those with fewer than 100 cases.

    Summary:Efferent flow signal, which shows continuous waveform, adjacent to afferent pulsatile wave signal is often detected within hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by color Doppler imaging. It is hypothesized that this signal may reflect the draining efferent blood flow within the preexisting portal vein, which remained in the advanced stage HCC nodule. In order to clarify whether this hypothesis is correct, 11 resected advanced HCC with such signals were analyzed histopathologically. The size of tumor ranged 1.2-5.1cm (Mean±SD=2.5±1.3cm). In 8 out of 11 (73%), Glisson sheath including patent portal vessel were observed within the tumor. These portal veins were located within entire tumor in small, well-differentiated HCC, where as those were located in the periphery of the tumor in large, relatively poorly differentiated HCC. These results suggested that the portal vein, which remained within the advanced HCC, may act as a draining vessel in some advanced HCCs. Furthermore, portal vein is an efferent draining vessel already in small, well-differentiated HCC.
