Responding to the demands of the increasing medical significance of hepatobiliary tumors in terms of research and treatment. At the LCCH, numerous specialists from the fields of surgery, oncology, gastroenterology, pathology, diagnostic and interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiation oncology work together in an interdisciplinary manner at promptly translating the latest scientific findings into clinical studies in order to improve the possibilities for treating hepatobiliary tumors.
MD Anderson researchers are devoted to learning more about liver cancer. MD Anderson’s Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) grant is the only HCC SPORE grant funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH). Teams are studying the use of immunotherapy for earlier stages of HCC. They are also developing ways to screen high-risk patients for liver cancer and studying prevention strategies. Their goal is to improve patient outcomes and reduce death rates through early intervention.
MD Anderson offers clinical trials of new treatments for liver cancer. These include systemic therapy, radioembolization, chemoembolization, microwave ablation, SBRT, proton therapy, and more.
