Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the first tyrosine kinase inhibitor was approved for systemic treatment of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) over a decade ago, there has been unprecedented progress in the management and understanding of HCC. Treatment options have been expanded to include immune checkpoint inhibitors, which have now become part of standard of care, and molecular profiling of HCC has identified important drivers that are leading to potentially actionable targets. In addition, newer interventional approaches have been successfully implemented in those with localized disease. Progress is still needed in identifying predictors of treatment response and to determine the role of earlier systemic treatment as adjunct therapy of localized disease. We invite researchers to address one of these topics in the management of HCC from early to late stage disease.

I look forward to receiving your contributions.
