Drug-Eluting Bead, Irinotecan (DEBIRI) Therapy of Unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) with Concomitant Systemic Gemcitabine and Cisplatin (Gem-Cis)
The purpose of this study is to find out if the combination of trans-arterial chemoembolization (LC BEAD) plus infusional chemotherapy is safe and more effective than just receiving the infusional chemotherapy alone.
