SIRT Followed by CIS-GEM Chemotherapy Versus CIS-GEM Chemotherapy Alone as 1st Line Treatment of Patients With Unresectable Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma


Brief description of study

The study will evaluate the benefit of applying Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) using SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres prior to receiving systemic chemotherapy treatment (cisplatin-gemcitabine, or CIS-GEM) in patients with unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Half of the patients will be randomized to CIS-GEM chemotherapy plus SIRT, and half of the patients will be randomized to CIS-GEM alone.

Detailed Study Description

This clinical study is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, controlled study evaluating SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres followed by cisplatin-gemcitabine (CIS-GEM) chemotherapy vs. CIS-GEM chemotherapy alone as first-line treatment of patients with unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

Randomized patients will be followed until death, withdrawal of consent, or until end of study.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT02807181
