    Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third most common cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. HCC represents more than 90% of primary liver cancers. There is a growing incidence of HCC worldwide. In the Western world, HCC arises in a cirrhotic background in up to 90% of cases, and cirrhosis...

    T helper 17 (TH17) is a novel subset of T helper cells that has recently been identified in the hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumor environment. Its presence seems to be linked with HCC progression, possibly via facilitating angiogenesis. The origin of tumor-associated TH17 may be related to...

    The progression of carcinomas to high-grade malignancies is accompanied by profound histological changes in the tumor-associated stroma. Although previous studies have suggested that mesenchymal cells of the stroma undergo genetic alterations during this progression, a new study now provides...

    Tumor-associated fibroblasts are key regulators of tumorigenesis. In contrast to tumor cells, which are genetically unstable and mutate frequently, the presence of genetically more stable fibroblasts in the tumor stromal compartment makes them an optimal target for cancer immunotherapy. These...
