Math Equation Predicts and Detects Liver Cancer

December 16, 2019

University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center researchers developed a math equation to predict and detect liver cancer and identified when healthy cells become cancerous.

New Living Donor Option for Liver Transplantation at UC San Diego Health

March 1, 2016

Nationally, more than 15,000 patients are waiting for a liver transplant. Approximately 6,300 persons each year will receive a new liver; 1,400 die waiting. In California, one in four listed for liver transplant will die before an organ becomes available. Fortunately, living donation is now a lifesaving option at UC…

High Levels of Protein p62 Predict Liver Cancer Recurrence

May 19, 2016

…that high levels of the protein p62 in human liver samples are strongly associated with cancer recurrence and reduced patient survival. In mice, they also found that p62 is required for liver cancer to form.

Newly Discovered Cells Regenerate Liver Tissue Without Forming Tumors

August 13, 2015

…mechanisms that allow the liver to repair and regenerate itself have long been a matter of debate. Now researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have discovered a population of liver cells that are better at regenerating liver tissue than ordinary liver cells, or hepatocytes. The study…

Scientists Discover a New Signaling Pathway and Design a Novel Drug for Liver Fibrosis

April 25, 2024

Scientists from the University of California San Diego discovered a novel signaling pathway in liver cells, leading to a treatment for fibrosis.

Too Much of a Good Thing May Lead to Too Much of a Liver As Well

February 24, 2020

UC San Diego researchers suggest that prolonged exposure to a pair of antioxidant proteins may contribute to enlargement of the liver and fatty liver diseases.

New Cancer Therapy Target Stops Tumor Cells From Sharing Resources

October 17, 2023

Researchers at University of California San Diego have discovered a process in which liver cells share molecules in order to multiply under conditions that would ordinarily suppress cell proliferation. They also found evidence that this process occurs in various types of cancer cells.

Researchers Illuminate Key Role of NOX Proteins in Liver Disease

July 29, 2015

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have demonstrated a direct connection between two signaling proteins and liver fibrosis, a scarring process underlying chronic liver disease, the 12th leading cause of death in the United States.

Diet Plays Critical Role in NASH Progressing to Liver Cancer in Mouse Model

June 1, 2021

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine found in a mouse model that when fed a Western diet rich in calories, fat and cholesterol, the mice progressively became obese, diabetic and developed NASH, which progressed to HCC, chronic kidney and cardiovascular disease.

Researchers Identify Liver Cancer Progenitor Cells Before Tumors Become Visible

October 10, 2013

…hepatocellular carcinoma tumors – the most common form of liver cancer. The researchers found ways to identify and isolate the HCC progenitor cells long before actual tumors were apparent.
