From June 1989 through July 2000, 225 patients with HCC underwent their first course of proton beam therapy at the University of Tsukuba. Of them, 27 with 68 lesions who had undergone 2 or more courses of proton beam therapy were enrolled in this study. A median total dose of 72 Gy in 16 fractions over 22 days and 66 Gy in 16 fractions over 22 days were given with proton beams for the first course and the rest of the courses, respectively.
