We would like to highlight the application of natural products to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We will focus on the natural products known as flavonoids, which target this disease at different stages of hepatocarcinogenesis. In spite of the use of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in treating HCC, patients with HCC still face poor prognosis because of the(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a rare subtype of malignancy, for which no consensus exists about treatment. In this study, the treatment outcomes of gastric NHL in 57 patients were retrospectively evaluated for a period of 20 years at a single institute.

Multiple myeloma is a neoplastic proliferation of monoclonal plasma cells that can result in osteolytic bone lesions, hypercalcemia, renal impairment, bone marrow failure, and the production of monoclonal gammopathy [1]. Extraskeletal involvement in multiple myeloma is unusual. Liver, spleen, and lymph nodes are chiefly involved in extraosseous spread.(More)
BACKGROUND To study the role of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in the carcinogenesis of various lymphoid neoplasms in Taiwan, a nonisotopic in situ hybridization (ISH) technique was used to detect the expression of EBV-encoded small RNAs (EBERs) in various lymphoid neoplasms. METHODS We obtained the paraffin-embedded tissues of various hematological(More)
