Key Words Hepatocellular carcinoma; Radiation therapy; Immune checkpoint inhibitors; Abscopal effect
Core Tip In the era of cancer immunotherapy, the roles of radiation therapy (RT) are not limited to the direct killing of cancerous cells but have expanded to immune modulation. Numerous proof-of-concept preclinical studies have proven that combination approaches of RT and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are highly promising for many types of cancers, and currently, many related clinical trials are ongoing. Historically, RT was considered ineffective for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the efficacy of RT in HCC has improved greatly with technical advances. Our goal of this review is to provide a rationale for the combined treatment with RT and ICIs in HCC.
