Core Tip The primary resistance of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to sorafenib is due to genetic heterogeneity. Thus, seeking predictive biomarkers and combining sorafenib with other anticancer agents for HCC have been launched with varying degrees of success. Sorafenib inhibits several kinase targets but it can also simultaneously or sequentially activate the addiction switches and compensatory pathways, inducing acquired resistance. Some other molecular targeted drugs have been used as second-line treatment for advanced HCC after the failure of sorafenib therapy. Further investigation on the crosstalk and relationship of associated pathways will better our understanding of the mechanisms accounting for sorafenib resistance in HCC.
