New therapeutic target to combat liver cancer discovered
Date:1/26/2012

This release is available in Spanish.

Researchers at CIC Biogune, the Cooperative Centre for Research into Biosciences and led by Dr. Maria Luz Martinez Chantar, have found a strong relationship between high levels of Hu antigen R (HuR) protein and the malignancy of Hepatocellular Carcinoma, through a novel molecular process in the investigation of this pathology and known as neddylation. The project provides new opportunities for making advances in the quest for personalised therapeutic applications in the treatment for Hepatocarcinoma.

Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is the cause of most liver cancers, the fifth most frequent cancer worldwide and the third after lung and gastric cancers. HCC is a tumour with a poor prognosis, even in developed countries; its incidence is similar to its death rate, most patients dying within months of diagnosis, despite diagnostic and therapeutic advances. It is a highly heterogeneous tumour and so the scientific community is redoubling its efforts to establish personalised and highly specific therapeutic targets.

Researchers from the Metabolomic Unit at CIC bioGUNE and led by Dr. Martinez, have gone one step further with this type of tumour and have revealed a hitherto unknown molecular mechanism that is involved in the development of CHC, showing that the malignancy of this illness may be linked to the overexpression of the HuR protein.

The research work, published in the Hepatology journal, and which has obtained a mention in the Cancer section of the prestigious Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology journal, showed the relation between high levels of HuR protein and the malignancy of Hepatocellular Carcinoma by means of a molecular mechanism neddylation - totally novel in these kinds of tumour and effectively opens up new opportunities for the future development of potential th
