BACKGROUND/AIMS There is some controversy regarding whether or not hepatitis C virus (HCV) subtype 1b is more influential than non-1b subtypes on the progression of chronic hepatitis (CH) C to liver cirrhosis (LC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 823 patients with chronic HCV infection, including 443 CH patients, 264(More)
Valosin-containing protein (VCP), or p97, is a member of the ATP-binding protein family, and is involved in numerous cellular events, such as, protein degradation, membrane fusion, and chaperone activity. VCP has been demonstrated playing a critical role in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) pathogenesis and progression recently. We investigated the(More)
BACKGROUND & AIM To investigate the prevalence, mortalities, and patient characteristics of Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) according to the AARC (Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver ACLF Research Consortium) and European Association for the Study of the Liver CLIF-C (Chronic Liver Failure Consortium) definitions. METHODS We(More)
To evaluate the clinical efficacy of alpha-interferon(IFN-alpha) plus cis-platinum in hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC). 56 inoperable patients with HCC were divided into IFN-alpha plus cis-platinum treated group (n = 30) and no antitumor therapy group (n = 26). The survival of IFN-alpha plus cis-platinum treated patients was significantly better than that of(More)
Cystadenoma of the liver is a rare neoplasm. Although many cystadenomas are asymptomatic, symptoms can include abdominal pain, postprandial epigastric discomfort, and nausea. Dramatic changes in hepatic imaging techniques have been helpful for diagnosing cystic lesions of the liver, such as simple cyst, hydatid cyst, cystadenoma, cystadenocarcinoma, and(More)
BACKGROUND Whether a combination of chemotherapy and erlotinib is beneficial for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains controversial. This study aimed to summarize the currently available evidence and compare the efficacy and safety of chemotherapy plus erlotinib versus chemotherapy alone for treating advanced NSCLC. METHODS EMBASE, PubMed,(More)
To evaluate and compare the therapeutic efficacy of adenine arabinoside (Ara-A) and alpha-interferon (alpha-INF), 40 patients with biopsy proven chronic active hepatitis B were chosen at random to receive Ara-A (15 mg/Kg, iv, for 10 day) or alpha-INF (3 million unit, sc, every other day for 12 wks) and followed up to 12 months after completion of the(More)
In five patients with agenesis of the right lobe of the liver, computed tomography or sonography demonstrated absence of the right lobe with compensatory hypertrophy of other segments. In three patients, the caudate lobe was also absent. The radiologic differential diagnosis includes lobar atrophy due to cirrhosis or hilar cholangiocarcinoma. Nineteen other(More)
