FUJIFILM Liver Biomarkers: Aiding in the Early Detection of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)
Booth #D3233 (second level)
November 10-14, Boston, MA
Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Surveillance Biomarker Landscape Overview
Date & Time: Monday, November 13, 1:30-2:00pm Location: Product Theater 1 (Plaza Level)
HCC surveillance is associated with reduced HCC mortality. However, ultrasound has insufficient sensitivity for early tumor detection, prompting increasing interest in blood-based biomarkers. This session will review the phases of biomarker validation, present the status and data for (protein and liquid biopsy) biomarkers, and discuss ongoing biomarker studies.

FUJIFILM HCC Risk Biomarkers
AFP-L3 and DCP are in vitro diagnostic serum biomarkers for use in patients at risk for hepatocellular carcinoma
AFP-L3: Lectin-reactive alpha-fetoprotein; DCP: Des-gamma-carboxy prothrombin
AFP-L3% ≥10%: Associated with 10.6-fold increased risk of developing HCC1
DCP ≥7.5 ng/mL: Associated with 4.8-fold increased risk of developing HCC1
Both biomarkers are commercially available through major US reference labs and are available for reimbursement by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Overview of Intended Uses (See package inserts): The μTASWako AFP-L3 and DCP test systems are in vitro devices that consist of reagents used with the μTASWako i30 Immunoanalyzer to quantitatively measure, by immunochemical techniques, AFP-L3% and DCP in human serum. Both devices are intended for IVD use as aids in the risk assessment of patients with chronic liver disease for development of HCC in conjunction with other laboratory findings, imaging studies and clinical assessment.1
