Gene therapy of liver cancer covers a variety of gene transfer strategies aimed to the treatment of patients with primary and secondary liver tumors, including gene directed enzyme/pro-drug therapy, inhibition of oncogenes and restoration of tumor-suppressor genes, immunotherapy, anti-angiogenesis and virotherapy.

Some of these strategies have reached early clinical development with diverse little success.
