The Research

Liver cancer incidence is increasing faster than any other cancer. In Australia, liver cancer deaths are estimated to increase by 85% to 3500 deaths in 2030 imposing a major medical and public health burden. When diagnosed at an early stage, treatments such as surgery or liver transplantation can be very successful. However, most patients are diagnosed at a later stage when the cancer is more difficult to treat, and outcomes are poor. There is an urgent need for new, more effective treatments for late-stage liver cancer.
