Hello People, I recently stumbled on a news article stating a recent discovery from UCL Scientists of the use of Chloroquine to prevent Liver Cancer progression particularly for Cirrhosis patients. Has anyone any experience with this?

Hello Dirs, that looks very promising, although my recent US showed no masses I will inform my Hepatologist at my next visit. Many thanks for the heads up.

Hello Davianne, great!! Please keep me informed with the feedback from your Hepatologist. I have shared the same with my Hepatologist here in Nigeria but he has provided no feedback yet... I will be looking forward.

Interesting and promising article ☺. Low dose chloroquine is also a possible treatment for my liver condition, porphyria cutanea tarda. X
