For 6 patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in whom TAE was inefficacious, we tried hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy. 5-FU 500 mg/day + CDDP 10 mg/day was administered during 5 days. The AFP level was decreased for 4 patients, and 2 patients showed a partial response in CT image. These 2 patients have been alive over 22 and 18 months, respectively. These results suggest that 5-FU + CDDP HAI might be a useful treatment of HCC inefficacious with TAE.
