Long-term survival in a case of multiple liver metastasis from postoperative gastric cancer effectively treated by hepatic intraarterial infusion chemotherapy using MMC and pirarubicin



Long-term survival in a case of multiple liver metastasis from postoperative gastric cancer effectively treated by hepatic intraarterial infusion chemotherapy using MMC and pirarubicin



Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer and ChemoTherapy 25(9): 1419-1421



We experienced a case of multiple liver metastasis from postoperative gastric cancer who showed long-term survival with hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAI) of MMC and pirarubicin. A catheter was inserted into the hepatic artery, and 4 mg of MMC and 20 mg of pirarubicin were administered through an implantable port catheter every two to four weeks. The total dose of MMC and pirarubicin by the time of this report was 164 mg and 820 mg, respectively. The follow-up CT scan 2 months after the beginning of HAI showed a decrement of the liver tumors. The decrease rate at 12 and 17 months was 50% and 70%, respectively, which was diagnosed as partial response (PR). The therapeutic effect at 49 months is still PR without any sign of tumor enlargement of extra hepatic lesion.
