[pullquote]The CLIP score for a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma is calculated by assigning a score.[/pullquote]

Formula :

Points are given for each variable.

Explanation of Result :

The CLIP score for a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma is calculated by assigning a score (0, 1 or 2) to each of four clinical factors: a) Child-Pugh stage; b) number of tumor nodules and whether the tumor extends through <=50% or >50% of the liver; c) AFP; and d) portal vein thrombosis.

Median Survival :
0 = 42.5 months
1 = 32.0 months
2 = 16.5 months
3 = 4.5 months
4 = 2.5 months
5-6 = 1 month

* Please verify all calculations prior to clinical use.
