COMBINATION IMMUNOTHERAPY COULD STOP LIVER CANCER GROWTH



Even as overall cancer incidence and mortality decrease in the United States, the number of people diagnosed with liver cancer is still on the rise. Current therapies for liver cancer are largely ineffective, but new preclinical data from University of California San Diego School of Medicine offers proof-of-principle for combination immunotherapy that suppresses tumor growth in the liver.

Researchers with UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center are reporting that combining two reagents — a synthetic double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid (polyIC) with a programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) antibody — was effective at stopping the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), with complete tumor remission and tumor-free survival observed in some mouse models.

This data led them to believe that developing a liver cancer prevention strategy is possible by boosting innate immunity, which can benefit a large population of chronic liver diseases in patients who are at high risk for liver cancer development.
