Core Tip Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the major cancers worldwide, for which the only approved target therapy is sorafenib. In addition to its previously characterized kinase inhibition, sorafenib also acts via a kinase-independent mechanism to target signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) signaling in HCC cells. This review discusses these findings, adding to the knowledge concerning the mechanisms of action of sorafenib as well as exploring the potential use of STAT3 as a therapeutic target in future cancer drug development.
