Developing successful treatments for HCC and NASH

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most prevalent cancer and the second most common cause of cancer deaths worldwide.[1] There is not currently a successful therapy to treat HCC in advanced stages.[2] NASH is a primary risk factor for liver cancer.

Devanand Sarkar and his team have uncovered the molecular mechanisms leading to NASH and HCC, shedding light on the connections between obesity and cancer. He is leveraging this knowledge to develop targeted treatments for both NASH and advanced HCC. We asked him to give us a brief insight into his work ahead of his presentation at the 3rd Global NASH Congress, 2020.

Connecting Cancer Biology to Clinical Oncology: Still a World to Win

Our understanding of the aberrant biological pathways (oncogenic pathways) that are involved in the formation and progression of cancers has increased with huge leaps in the last decades of cancer research. The ever-increasing knowledge was and still is accompanied by the development of increasing numbers of precision drugs, tailored to neutralize these aberrations.

The future of precision medicine

Unreasonable cost of trial-and-error medicine means precision medicine is imperative for targeted therapies

Rising pressures to decrease healthcare cost globally, the emergence of value-based reimbursement models and healthcare digitisation trends are transitioning the medication model from ‘one-size-fits-all’ to stratified and outcome based targeted therapies.
