LiSyM-Krebs ist ein nationales Forschungsnetz zur Früherkennung und Prävention von Leberkrebs, das unter Verwendung des systemmedizinischen Forschungsansatzes die komplexen, dynamischen Prozesse der Krankheitsprogression analysiert, um ausgehend von den Erkenntnissen aus dem Forschungsnetz LiSyM die Entstehung von Leberkrebs besser zu verstehen, vorherzusagen und im besten Fall sogar zu verhindern. LiSyM-Krebs setzt die erfolgreichen Forschungsaktivitäten der BMBF-Vorgängerprogramme ...

Liver Systems Medicine : striving to develop non-invasive methods for diagnosing and treating NAFLD by combining mathematical modeling and biological research. LiSyM, is a multidisciplinary research network, in which molecular and cell biologists, clinical researchers, pharmacologists and experts in mathematical modeling examine the liver in its entirety. LiSyM research focuses on the metabolic liver disease non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which includes non-alcoholic steatohepatitis ...

SMART-NAFLD : A Systems Medicine Approach to Early Detection and Prevention of Hepatocellular Carcinoma in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
The massive increase in obesity is leading to an alarming rise in non-alcoholic liver disease (NAFLD). This development will lead to a dramatic increase in liver diseases such as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A particular challenge is that NAFLD-associated HCCs, for reasons still unknown, not only occur in association with advanced liver fibrosis/cirrhosis, ...

**C-TIP-HCC **- Mechanism-based Multiscale Model to Dissect the Tipping Point from Liver Cirrhosis to Hepatocellular Carcinoma
The ultimate goal of the C-TIP-HCC is a „mechanistic multiscale model to describe dynamic changes in regenerative nodes across a tipping point (TIP) towards development in patients with cirrhosis to facilitate early monitoring and intervention“ and facilitate intervention“. To achieve this, we will conduct in-depth studies on cirrhotic regenerative nodes.

In chronic diseases, at some point the liver can suddenly stop functioning. This is called acute-on-chronic liver failure, or ACLF. This is the leading cause of death in liver patients and is often provoked by the use of transcription or freely available drugs or alcohol abuse. For this condition we need an effective treatment quickly. LiSyM-Pillar III researches the factors that contribute significantly to ACLF. What exactly happens then? Are there any early signs that would enable ACLF to be ...
In one in five people with NAFLD, the functioning liver cells, the hepatocytes, are replaced by connective tissue. Eventually this fibrosis becomes irreversible. In this state the liver is like a ‘scar that never heals’. Through it, the liver loses many of its vital functions. LiSyM-Pillar II wants to know more about which factors promote fibrosis and the conditions under which fibrosis becomes irreversible How can fibrosis be diagnosed as early as possible? Researchers in the pillar are also ...
