World Cancer Day is an important means of spreading awareness of the disease that kills 8.8 million people a year worldwide. Unfortunately, cancer isn’t just one disease - there are hundreds of different cancers, some harder to treat than others. Experts have speculated that we could be just 5-10 years away from be able to effectively treat individual cancers, and fast-moving, ongoing research is crucial in the fight to achieve this. So in honour of World Cancer Day, we’ve highlighted some of the interesting oncology research published across our Dove Medical Press journals. These are all open access articles – free for all to read.
Additionally, one of our editorial board members in the Journal of Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Ashraf Omar Abdelaziz (Secretary General of the Egyptian Society of Liver Cancer and Professor of Hepatology and Endemic Medicine, Director of Multidisciplinary HCC clinic, Cairo University, Egypt) is taking part in the EASL HCC summit in Geneva from 2-5 February, and will today be presenting five posters about hepatocellular carcinoma. Follow the #HCCsummit hashtag on Twitter for the latest news on this.
