A study led by the National Cancer Centre Singapore, has set out to identify novel ways to predict the disease.
Professor Pierce Chow, lead author of the study, said: “Having cared for patients with liver cancer for more than 20 years, I see a pressing need to better predict this disease, diagnose it early and improve treatment outcomes.”
The study author has recruited 200 participants since April, and hopes to rope in 2,000 individuals by next year.
Researchers will follow the participants over the course of four years, collecting blood, urine samples and conducting blood tests and ultrasounds.
