Progress in hepatocellular cancer has been remarkable in the last year after a decade of unsuccessful trials. Besides great strides in treating hepatitis C, we now have a number of molecularlytargeted drugs and immunotherapies, and the best treatment option and sequence for advanced patients is evolving. Early detection, optimal selection of candidates for surgery, and liver-directed therapies remain challenging. This Special Issue will discuss important basic science developments in our understanding of liver cancer biology; innovations in the treatment of localized disease; and novel therapeutics, especially immunotherapy agents and upcoming trials that may impact the treatment of hepatocellular cancer in the years to come.
