Abstract

Abstract
Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is a common cancer in Thailand. This study aimed to describe epidemiological characteristics and survival outcomes of patients diagnosed with CCA at Roi-et Cancer Center during January and December 2010. Cox proportional hazard regression analysis was used to analyze data from 119 patients diagnosed with imaging techniques. The median survival time was found to be 4.4 months and the 2-year survival rate was 14.5%. From multivariate analysis by Cox proportional hazard regression, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level >5 µg/l and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) >150 IU/l were found to be indicators of decreased survival time while having surgery led to longer survival time. To improve survival outcome, early detection through screening program and early diagnosis must be organized. Prognostic values of CEA and ALP should be considered.
