Hepatocellular carcinoma surveillance and the emerging role of biomarker-based models

In the latest Research Review Educational Series, Associate Professor Simone Strasser, a senior staff specialist at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, explores hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) surveillance and the emerging role of biomarker-based models.

Strasser notes that “it was presumed that with widespread uptake of neonatal and childhood hepatitis B vaccination, effective hepatitis B antiviral therapy, and high uptakes of hepatitis C curative therapies, rates of HCC would start to decline in the community”.

However, this has not happened, due to an increase in population rates of obesity-related metabolic-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD). This places increasing emphasis on the prevention and management of obesity and metabolic dysfunction in our battle against HCC.
