Cholangiocarcinoma, a highly lethal rare cancer with poor prognosis, arises from the bile ducts in the liver. With approximately 8,000 cases a year being diagnosed in the United States, cholangiocarcinoma is the second most common primary liver cancer in the world. It is often diagnosed at advanced stages when treatment is only minimally effective, emphasizing the imminent need for novel therapies.
