More Reliable Biomarkers Needed for Early Detection of Liver Cancer
Date:2/25/2010

. Therefore, prospective studies should be conducted to determine if combining both markers will improve the detection of early HCC and to establish the optimal cutoff values that should be used for patient recall and further testing.

"Until better serum markers are available, ultrasonography remains the preferred tool for HCC surveillance. However, reliable biomarkers to complement ultrasound may improve the detection of early HCC in clinical practice where interpretation of ultrasound is variable," says Lok. In this study, diagnosis of early HCC was triggered by surveillance ultrasound in only 58 percent of patients.
