Centenary Institute scientists have successfully created a more realistic model of primary liver cancer; placing medical researchers in a much better position to develop more effective treatments for the third-most common cause of cancer death worldwide.
“Our novel model has progressed two key areas: fast-tracking the time it takes to conduct modelling, while more closely replicating liver cancer drivers that occur in humans,” says PhD student James Henderson, lead author on the study.
“This places researchers in a much better position to develop effective therapies in future to treat liver cancer in the early stages; reducing the burden on Australia’s health-care system and improving patient outcomes.”
