Biomarkers of hepatocellular carcinoma
Patients with liver cancer are diagnosed at a very late stage in Africa. We have found that the median survival is less than 90 days in our cohort (manuscript under preparation). The PROLIFICA team is working on the identification of biomarkers which might be used for early diagnosis of cirrhosis or HCC (Ladep et al Hepatology 2014). Additional studies are currently on progress. This work is led by Prof. Simon Taylor-Robinson, Prof. Elaine Holmes and Dr Maimuna Mendy.
