AFP Levels Associated With HCC Survival
Date            AFP results

09/18/2012 - 111.7 ng/mL

12/03/2012 - 291.2 ng/mL

03/07/2013 - 669.6 ng/mL

I had TACE procedure on March 12, 2013.
I hope my AFP number can come down under 400 ng/mL

The investigators found that individuals who had AFP levels of at least 1,000 ng/mL at diagnosis had lower survival rates than patients with lower AFP levels. Patients whose AFP levels reached 1,000 ng/mL had a 12% one-year survival rate and only a 1% five-year survival rate. These patients had an adjusted hazard ratio (HR) of mortality of 4.35 compared with HCC patients with AFP levels below 10 ng/mL. Furthermore, patients’ mortality risk grew incrementally with increasing AFP levels: mortality risk was 1.50 (95% CI, 1.22-1.83) in patients with AFP levels between 10 and 100 ng/mL and 2.23 (95% CI, 1.80-2.76) in patients with AFP levels between 100 and 1,000 ng/mL.
