It has been suggested that Asian patients with hepatocellular carcinoma have increased susceptibility to hand-foot skin reaction (HFSR) related to sorafenib therapy. Differences in the incidence of HFSR may be caused by ethnic differences in genetic polymorphisms of the genes, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase 1 family-polypeptide A9 (UGT1A9), especially in relation to the expression of serum TNF-α after sorafenib therapy.
