Abstract

Purpose: Hepatocellar carcinoma (HCC) remains a major health problem being the third leading cause of deaths due to cancer worldwide. Because HCC is known to be highly resistant to conventional systemic therapies, single-agent or combination of systemic therapies have been investigated. Today, sorafenib, a multikinase inhibitor, is the only approved systemic agent for the first line treatment of advanced HCC. In this study, we aimed to investigate the influence of different concentrations of cisplatin, doxorubicin, pegylated doxorubicin (PLD), oxaliplatin and gemcitabine by applying these agents either single or in combinations on mahlavu cell line.
