The study looked at the role of L-carnitine in the development of hepatocarcinogenesis. The researchers suggest regarding carnitine deficiency is a risk factor and a mechanism in hepatic carcinogenesis, and found that long-term L-carnitine supplementation prevents the development of liver cancer. They conclude that L-carnitine supplementation alone or in combination with other natural chemopreventive compounds could be used to prevent, slow or reverse liver cancer.
