Fourth Webinar: July 8th, 3-5 pm ET
Improving Early Detection of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC): The Quest for New Biomarkers
Hosted by the National Cancer Institute
Current guidelines (e.g. AASLD) recommend biannual (every 6 months) surveillance for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), usually using ultrasound (US) which may or may not include measuring the marker, AFP (alpha-fetoprotein). This is recommended for certain chronic liver diseases (e.g. HBV infected individuals) and also for individuals with cirrhosis. These surveillance recommendations achieve mixed results in their effectiveness for early detection of HCC. There is an unmet need to identify and implement more effective surveillance (e.g. imaging and biomarkers) for the early detection of HCC. This webinar will explore the challenges and opportunities for improving HCC surveillance.
