Core Tip It is mandatory to develop alternative therapies for the successful treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). One of the key drivers of hepatocarcinogenesis is the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system. Therefore, several inhibitors of this pathway have been developed and their therapeutic potential is being tested in patients with HCC. However, recent studies suggest that IGF-Ⅱ, a member of the pathway, may be more relevant for hepatocarcinogenesis than its close homologue IGF-Ⅰ. The purpose of this review is to summarize these facts within a detailed description of the IGF axis and the alterations of the pathway that lead to HCC. The strategies designed to target the IGF-Ⅰ?signaling pathway for HCC treatment are also reviewed.
