However, GI cancer still accounts for half of the cancer deaths in Japan, and therefore, development of a new therapeutic approach is urgently required. On the other hand, new oral combination treatment has dramatically improved health outcomes for patients with hepatitis C. However, liver cirrhosis, the end-stage of every chronic liver disease still being the major risk factor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma.

This review focused on the author’s research on new treatments approach and clinical trials, especially for GI cancer and cirrhosis and discussed the future directions of our study.
