The molecular changes that occur in cancerous cells can be viewed as biochemical modifications orchestrated on a protein level. The human proteome is estimated to contain more than 20,000 proteins. Thus, studying proteins that are differentially expressed in cancer cells can reveal a plethora of important components involved in cell signaling and functionality. oncoproteomics offers great promise for unveiling the complex molecular events of tumorigenesis, as well as those that control clinically important tumor behaviors, such as metastasis, invasion and the efficacy of drugs used in cancer therapy. In the present study, an animal model of Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in male Wistar rats was developed by using DEN/AAF. Serum and liver tissue proteins were screened at regular time intervals of disease progression and post treatment by 1D SDS PAGE, 2 D Electrophoresis and MALDI-TOF-MS to see the protein expression changes. A signature of Six proteins was identified as Pharmacodynamic Biomarkers to mark the progression of HCC. Sorafenib Liposomes were targeted to HCC and there efficacy evaluated exhibited a marked reduction in tumor size.
