Committee of the Chinese Anti-Cancer Association 2001 "Clinical Diagnosis of Primary
Liver Cancer and Staging Criteria"

interval extension (male> 450 ms, female> 470 ms);

- Renal insufficiency, need peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis

- Serious dysfunction of other organs

- History of second primary malignant tumors

- Known or new evidence of brain or leptomeningeal disease

- Hemophilia or bleeding tendency, and are taking therapeutic doses of coumarin
derivative anticoagulant therapy drugs

- Pregnant or lactation, all female patients with childbearing potential must have a
pregnancy test (serum or urine) within 7 days after enrollment,and the result is

- History of organ transplantation

- Known HIV infection

- With any other serious acute and chronic physical or mental disease or abnormal
laboratory tests, which are likely to increase risks or interfere with the
interpretation of the results, or researchers believe that patients are not suitable
for enrollment
