Core Tip We conducted a study on the real-world effectiveness of nivolumab (immunotherapy) in patients with advanced liver cancer who were ineligible for the standard of care or other validated treatments, including patients with impaired liver function and a poor general condition, a population that is usually not included in studies. We showed a reduction of tumor mass in 24.1% of patients, with a disappearance of tumor mass in 13.9% of patients, which is better than that reported in the literature. Furthermore, we confirmed the favorable safety profile of nivolumab. Hence, nivolumab should be considered as a valuable treatment option in selected patients who are otherwise not eligible for treatment.
