Transarterial chemoembolization is a standard treatment for intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study evaluated the anti-tumor effect of the semi-interpenetrating network (IPN) hydrogel as a novel embolic material for trans-portal vein chemoembolization (TPVE) in vivo. A nude mice orthotopic HCC model was established, followed by TPVE using IPN hydrogel loaded with or without cisplatin. Portal vein blockade was visualized by MRI and the development of tumor was monitored by IVIS Spectrum Imaging. Tumor proliferation and...
