Abstract 1737


Hepatocholangiocarcinoma (cHCC-ICC) is a rare primary hepatic tumor combining features of cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The aim was to evaluate the overall survival (OS), progression free survival (PFS) and prognostic factors in unresectable cHCC-ICC treated by gemcitabine (gem) and platinum- based chemotherapy in first line systemic treatment.


Data from patients treated for advanced cHCC-ICC by gem and platinum- based chemotherapy in six French university hospitals between 2008 and 2016, were retrospectively collected. The diagnosis of cHCC-ICC was based on histological analysis or, in case of typical histology of ICC or HCC, on discordant CT-Scan findings and/or tumor marker (alpha-fetoprotein, carbohydrate antigen 19-9, carcinoembryonic antigen) serum levels suggesting the alternative histology. OS and PFS were estimated by Kaplan-Meier method. Prognostic factors were analyzed by Log-rank test in univariate analysis and by Cox model in multivariate analysis. Statistical analysis was performed using Graph Pad Prism 6.


Forty patients were included (70% men, median age 66 years [extremes 32-88]). cHCC-ICC was histologically proven in 55% of cases. At diagnosis, twenty-three patients (57.5%) had metastatic synchronous lesion. Twenty-nine patients (72.5%) were treated by gem + oxaliplatine (GEMOX), 9(22.5%) by GEMOX + bevacizumab, 2(5%) by gem + cisplatine. Eighteen patients (45%) received second line of treatment. In the first line, patients received a median of 10 cycles of chemotherapy (extremes 1-28). RECIST1.1 criteria were reported in 35 cases: 9 patients (25.7%) had partial response, 18 (51.4%) had stable disease, 8 (22.8%) had tumor progression at first evaluation. Median PFS and OS were 9 and 15.4 months, respectively. In multivariate analysis, significant prognostic factors of poor OS were: positive serology for hepatitis B virus and/or C (HR = 1.35 IC95% [1.13-13.24] p = 0.031), serum bilirubin level > 30µmol/L (HR = 1.66 IC95% [1.57-17.54] p = 0.007), ECOG score ≥ 2 (HR = 2.46 IC95% [2.23-61.75] p = 0.004).


These data suggest a chemosensitivity of cHCC-ICC to gemcitabine and platinum based chemotherapy.
