Metastatic cancer of the liver, [Liver Metastases With Unknown Primary Site] - PubMed
While recent improvements in surgical techniques and a more aggressive approach to resection of liver metastases have improved long term survival for some patients, most patients with hepatic metastases still succumb to their disease.
To improve these dismal statistics, a better understanding of the biology of liver metastasis, particularly the early stages that metastatic cancer of the liver be targeted for prevention, is essential. Once cancer cells enter the liver, several different scenarios may occur. The cancer cells may be immediately destroyed by local defence mechanisms, they may enter a state of dormancy as solitary cells and never produce a metastasis, initiate a short-lived process of proliferation that is aborted before a metastasis is established or actively proliferate to form macrometastases.
Written by experts researchers in the filed of metastasis, these chapters provide state-of-the art reviews on the cellular and molecular processes that impact the early stages of the metastatic process. The unique microenvironment of the liver, its various anatomical, cellular and molecular features and the impact they have on metastasis are highlighted.

Against this background, the chapters in Part II of the book provide critical reviews on major aspects of the clinical management of hepatic metastases.
