New study identifies link between presence of oncofetal ecosystem and liver cancer recurrence

A team of researchers has found a causal link between the presence of oncofetal ecosystems (re-emergence of fetal program/features driven by the tumor) in the primary liver cancer hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cancer recurrence and response to immunotherapy. These findings, which pave the way for the use of oncofetal ecosystems as biomarkers to treat HCC, were published in Nature Cancer.
