Scientists Now Understand Why Cancer Invariably Spreads To the Liver

Scientists have unlocked the dynamics behind the spread of liver cancer

Researchers from the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania claim to know why cancer most often spreads to the liver. Liver cancer is a leading cause of death in the United States and scientists had been hard put to understand it for a long time. The researchers published their findings in the journal Nature.

Hepatocytes are the main operative cells of the liver. The researchers found these liver cells are vulnerable to cancer cells as a result of a complex chain of organic events. The IL-6 signal drives the chain reaction that enables cancer cells to invade the liver.

A Chain Reaction with Liver Cells and Complex Proteins Causes Liver Cancer

When this chain reaction is set in motion, it inflames the hepatocytes which in turn activates the production of the protein STAT3. With the inflammation of liver cells and the subsequent production of STAT3, other proteins known as SAA rise to the surface. In the presence of inflammed hepatocytes, proteins STAT3 and SAA, the liver undergoes a process which enables cancer cells to move in and take root.

The researchers were able to demonstrate that releasing antibodies to block the activity of the IL-6 inflammatory chain-reacting signal can make it impossible for cancer cells to spread to the liver. Assistant professor of Hematology-Oncology at Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine Gregory L. Beatty, said hepatocytes are at the center of the liver cancer risk. Beatty is the senior author of the study.

The authors of the study conducted their research on mice. They discovered that hepatocytes in mice having cancer activated STAT3, but this is never the case in mice without cancer.

Restrictive Therapies on Hepatocytes Can Prevent Cancer from Infecting the Liver

Collaborating with scientists from Mayo Clinic Arizona, the Penn researchers found that people with pancreatic, colon and lung cancers undergo the same phenomenon – their hepatocytes indicated STAT3 activation. When STAT3 in the hepatocytes of lab mice was effectively removed, their liver became less vulnerable to cancer infection.

With further interactions with investigators from the University of Kentucky, the research team proved that IL-6 signals STAT3 to inflame hepatocytes, an action that produces SAA to ultimately make the liver attractive to spreading cancer cells.

Furthermore, it was demonstrated that with or without cancer tumors, any increase in IL-6 levels propels changes that make the liver susceptible to inflammatory cancer cells. Factors that could cause a spike in IL-6 level include obesity and cardiovascular diseases. To this extent, medical therapies on hepatocytes can prevent cancer cells from reaching the liver, effectively preventing liver cancer and cancer-related deaths.
