Iodine I 131 Ethiodized Oil in Preventing Recurrent Cancer in Patients Who Have Undergone Treatment for Liver Cancer
Hospices Civils de Lyon
RATIONALE: Iodine I 131 ethiodized oil may help prevent or delay the recurrence of cancer.
It is not yet known whether iodine I 131 ethiodized oil is more effective than
non-radiolabeled ethiodized oil in preventing recurrent cancer in patients who have
undergone treatment for liver cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying iodine I 131 ethiodized oil to see how
well it works compared with non-radiolabeled ethiodized oil in preventing recurrent cancer
in patients who have undergone treatment for liver cancer.
Transarterial Chemoembolization for the Treatment of Uveal Melanoma With Liver Metastases

Thomas Jefferson University
This phase II trial studies the effect of transarterial chemoembolization in treating
patients with uveal melanoma that has spread to the liver (liver metastases). Transarterial
chemoembolization involves the injection of a blocking agent (gelatin sponge, ethiodized oil)
and a chemotherapy agent (carmustine) directly into the artery in the liver to treat liver
cancers. Chemotherapy drugs, such as carmustine, work in different ways to stop the growth of
tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them
from spreading. transarterial chemoembolization with carmustine in combination with
ethiodized oil and gelatin sponge may help cause the tumors in the liver to shrink or
