Childhood Obesity Linked to Increased Risk of Hepatocellular Carcinoma in Adulthood
Date:4/19/2012

y, indicating that childhood obesity was the major factor in the development of HCC. Only around 10-20% of liver cancers can be removed completely with surgery and if this is not successful the disease is usually fatal within 3-6 months.[3] Therefore prevention is the best protection against the development of liver cancer.

This study was funded by and carried out as part of the FLIP (Fatty Liver Inhibition of Progression) consortia, built around practising clinical hepatologists, basic scientists and two industrial partners who focus on research into the underlying mechanisms and management of patients with NAFLD. The aim of the FLIP project is to understand and prevent the progression of NAFLD into more severe conditions, such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The project is supported by the European Commission through the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development and has been running since January 1st 2010.
