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.

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 ...

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 ...
This generic project is intended to be a forum for all LiSyM partner and external stakeholders interested in participating in the BMBF initiative LiSyM-Krebs.

Day-to-day science within the LiSyM is overseen and directed by the the LiSyM Scientific Leadership Team. This coordination team comprises the pillar coordinators and additional LiSyM members, and ensures smooth interaction between multi-skilled groups, often working in different institutions and across significant distances within Germany.
One of the tasks of the healthy liver is to store fat. Yet, at some stage, too much fat makes the liver sick. One critical time point occurs when a healthy fatty liver becomes inflamed and progresses to steatohepatitis, or NASH. LiSyM-Pillar I will identify what events lead to this transition. Does it occur in all parts of the liver? Which molecules indicate that it is taking place? Can the degeneration be stopped or undone - and if so, how?
