The high rate of liver cancer deaths in Korea has resulted in a new tool aimed at thwarting the condition. Liver cancer is the third biggest cause of Korean deaths with a post-surgical 5-year-survival rate of only 10%. Korean researchers have developed a genetic chip that analyses the genes of liver cancer patients. The results can then be used to determine the likelihood of a relapse and rates of survival. This information can in turn be used to increase monitoring in high risk patients.
