Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a primary malignancy of the liver that commonly arises from underlying liver cirrhosis. Nexavar (Bayer HealthCare / Amgen / Onyx), an angiogenesis inhibitor, was the only drug approved for advanced-stage patients until the recent approvals of Stivarga (Bayer HealthCare), Opdivo (Bristol-Myers Squibb / Ono Pharmaceuticals), Keytruda (Merck & Co.), Lenvima (Eisai / Merck & Co.), Cabometyx (Exelixis), and Cyramza (Eli Lilly). The late-phase development pipeline is predominantly focused on the advanced-stage HCC segment and encompasses a diverse range of mechanisms of action. Because the HCC market remains largely untapped, the developer of an efficacious therapy could reap high commercial rewards.
