GMO Insulin has been shown to accelerate Type 2 Diabetes to Type 1 Diabetes, a study finds.

While you may have a choice avoiding GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) at the supermarket, you don’t have a choice avoiding GMOs if you have Type 1 or even Type 2 diabetes.

Researchers say if you think that binge drinking is safer for your liver than regular heavy drinking than perhaps you should stop and think this over again.

Binge drinking is a trendy thing to take part in for college students at fraternity parties and other party goers.

Coffee reduces liver cancer risk for heavy drinkers

People who drink three or more alcoholic beverages per day could be increasing their chances of developing liver cancer.

But drinking coffee could lower a person's odds for liver cancer, even among heavy drinkers, according to a new report from the World Cancer Research Fund.

A pioneering treatment for chronic hepatitis C has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and it is expected to be a “game changer” in that it will be the first all-oral, interferon-free therapy to use sofosbuvir, a first-in-kind nuceotide analog inhibitor with dramatically high cure rates.

Coffee reduces liver cancer risk

You can reduce your risk of liver cancer every time you drink a cup of coffee, according to Italian researchers. While a new study explains this potential benefit, coffee consumption can be good for your liver in other ways as well, and the benefits of that cup of java don’t end in that organ either.

Steve Jobs Liver Transplant

Many of the major newspapers are reporting that Steve Jobs, the chief executive of Apple Inc, received a liver transplant about two months ago. There is no confirmation of the report by either Jobs or Apple.

It is known that Jobs, 53, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer five years ago. In January Steve Jobs handed the day-to-day reins to Tim Cook. At that time, he said he would be away from the job until the end of June.

Targeting Tumor Behavior Leads To New Liver Cancer Drugs

Jun 20 2009 - 8:27am

Ohio State University cancer researchers have used computational and genomic methods to identify possible anti-cancer agents that may block a particular kind of tumor behavior. The agents target multiple genes associated with that behavior at one time.

The researchers wanted to find agents that might reverse the gene changes associated with invasive liver cancer and perhaps stop liver tumors from spreading in the body. Such therapy could greatly improve patient survival, the researchers say.

The findings are published online in the journal Cancer.

Genetic Analysis Predicts Whether Liver Cancer Likely To Recur

Oct 27 2008 - 8:17am

Researchers are poised to unlock the genetic secrets stored in hundreds of thousands of cancer biopsy samples that are in long-term storage and previously thought to be useless for modern genetic research. With the aid of a new technique developed by Howard Hughes Medical Institute researchers, scientists can now reconstruct thousands of genes that are "shredded" into tiny pieces when tissue samples are treated with a chemical fixative and stored in wax - a protocol commonly used to preserve tissue samples indefinitely.

Liver cancer associated with good post-transplant outcomes

Sep 4 2008 - 11:57pm

Patients with liver cancer can become viable candidates for transplantation if their tumors respond to treatment, a new study suggests. This report is in the September issue of Hepatology, a journal published by John Wiley & Sons on behalf of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD). The article is available online at Wiley Interscience (www.interscience.wiley.com).

Nexavar Improves Liver Cancer Survival Rates

Jul 25 2008 - 9:03am

Nexavar drug is found to improve survival rates in liver cancer patients.

A joint team of researchers from Hospital Clinic of Barcelona and Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) Group has examined 602 advanced liver cancer patients who were divided into two groups: one group was taking Nexavar - sorafenib, the second group was taking a placebo.
