BACKGROUND Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in microRNA-coding genes may participate in the process of carcinogenesis by altering the expression of tumor-related microRNAs. It has been suggested that two common SNPs rs2910164 in miR-146a and rs11614913 in miR-196a2 are associated with susceptibility to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However,(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains a disastrous disease and the treatment for HCC is rather limited. Separation and identification of active compounds from traditionally used herbs in HCC treatment may shed light on novel therapeutic drugs for HCC. METHODS Cell viability and colony forming assay were conducted to determine anti-HCC(More)
Hypoxia is a common feature of many solid tumors, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Hypoxia can promote tumor progression and induce radiation and chemotherapy resistance. As one of the major mediators of hypoxic response, hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) has been shown to activate hypoxia-responsive genes, which are involved in multiple aspects(More)
PP2A is a family of mammalian serine/threonine phosphatases that is involved in the control of many cellular functions including protein synthesis, cellular signaling, cell cycle determination, apoptosis, metabolism, and stress responses through the negative regulation of signaling pathways initiated by protein kinases. Rapid progress is being made in the(More)
Glioma is one of the most common primary central nervous system tumors with high mortality and poor 5-year survival rate. Current diagnostic methods for glioma were either invasive or expensive. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs which play an important part in the regulation of gene expression. Considering the fact that miRNAs are stable in(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreatic fistula is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality after pancreaticoduodenectomy. We designed a modified technique, by which the pancreatic stump was invaginated into the jejunal loop by purse-string suture. METHODS From June 2008, 18 cases of patients were performed with this modified technique, and the morbidity and mortality(More)
Ubiquitin specific protease 39 (USP39) plays an important role in mRNA splicing. In the present study, we investigated the role of USP39 in regulating the growth of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We detected USP39 expression in more than 100 HCC clinical samples. The USP39 expression was significantly higher in the tumor tissues compared to the adjacent(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy and feeding-related complications of a nasojejunal feeding tube and jejunostomy after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) was investigated with a randomized, controlled clinical trial at the Affiliated Drum Tower Hospital. METHODS Sixty-eight patients who underwent PD in the Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery were randomly divided into 2(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common tumors in the world. At present, the details of the mechanism responsible for HCC formation and maintenance remain unclear. However, the cancer stem cell (CSC) theory suggests that liver cancer stem cells (LCSCs) may be responsible for the biological characteristics(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of parenteral nutrition (PN) support supplemented with ω-3 fatty acids was investigated in a randomized, controlled clinical trial at the Affiliated Drum Tower Hospital, Medical School of Nanjing University. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-eight patients with the diagnosis of end-stage liver disease or hepatic cellular carcinoma were(More)
