    Vitamin K: A potential Liver Cancer treatment way

    Sofi a Dahlberg and Ulf Schött*

    A review on different vitamin K1-3 effects on hepatocellular cancer and their tumour cell biology mechanism indicate possible synergistic treatment strategies. Monitoring of dysfunctional carboxylation of the vitamin K dependent coagulation factor II, with the commercial ELISA test PIVKA-II has been used as a hepatocellular cancer marker. Its relevance is also reviewed. Currently the PIVKA-II test has been withdrawn due to marketing reasons by Stago.
