The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, "However, there is still no established therapy to meet the goal. Studies have elucidated a wide variety of molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways involved in HCC development. Genetically-engineered or chemically-treated experimental models of cirrhosis and HCC have been developed and shown their potential value in investigating molecular therapeutic targets and diagnostic biomarkers for HCC prevention."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "In this review, we overview potential targets of prevention and currently available experimental models, and discuss strategies to translate the findings into clinical practice."
