Special Issue Introduction
Research has continued to help predict the near and distant future of medicine. Useful biomarkers can be used to predict the unknown risk and prognosis, thereby providing guidance to help clinicians make appropriate decisions and optimize patient care. Biomarkers can be categorized into seven classes: 1) susceptibility/risk, 2) diagnostic, 3) monitoring, 4) prognostic, 5) predictive, 6) pharmacodynamic/response, and 7) safety. One of the most well-known biomarkers is alpha-fetoprotein in the field of hepatocellular carcinoma. Alpha-fetoprotein has long been considered a diagnostic and prognostic biomarker for hepatocellular carcinoma; however, substantial advances are continuously being made in this field, with increasing data availability from large databases and improved technology assists in facilitating the development of new biomarkers. The current special issue of CMH aims to introduce novel biomarkers for hepatocellular carcinoma and evaluate their value in advancing the transition toward personalized medicine.
