Therapeutic options for late-stage liver cancer are very limited and the prognosis is often poor. A better understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in the initiation, progression, and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma is critical for developing more rational diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. This e-book covers current developments on clinically relevant research on the molecular biology of hepatocellular carcinoma. It should be a valuable reference for professional gastroenterologists, hepatologists and oncologists as well as medical students and researchers.
