Recent studies implicate neuronal guidance molecules in the orchestration of inflammatory events. For example, previous studies demonstrate a functional role for netrin-1 in attenuating acute kidney injury. Here, we hypothesized a kidney-protective role for netrin-1 during chronic kidney disease, such as occurs during diabetic nephropathy. To study the role(More)
BACKGROUNDS/AIMS Nucleos(t)ide analogues (NUCs) effectively suppress hepatitis B virus (HBV) replication, but hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence often leads to HBV replication despite NUC therapy. The aim of this study was to determine whether high-dose tenofovir (TNF) therapy can suppresses HCC recurrence-associated HBV replication. METHODS We(More)
Discovery of non-invasive diagnostic and predictive biomarkers for acute rejection in liver transplant patients would help to ensure the preservation of liver function in the graft, eventually contributing to improved graft and patient survival. We evaluated selected cytokines and chemokines in the sera from liver transplant patients as potential biomarkers(More)
BACKGROUNDS/AIMS Vitamin K may plays a role in controlling hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell growth. In this study, we intended to present 5-year experience of 72 patients receiving oral vitamin K with or without sorafenib. Its end-point was to evaluate the safety of combination therapy using sorafenib and vitamin K. METHODS An interim analysis was(More)
BACKGROUNDS/AIMS We evaluated the clinical usability of immune cell monitoring in adult liver transplantation (LT) recipients. METHODS This study was composed of two parts as using calcineurin phosphatase (CNP) activity assay and ImmuKnow assay independently as in vitro monitoring tools of immune cell function in adult LT recipients. RESULTS There was a(More)
Acute liver injury due to ischemia can occur during several clinical procedures e.g. liver transplantation, hepatic tumor resection or trauma repair and can result in liver failure which has a high mortality rate. Therefore murine studies of hepatic ischemia have become an important field of research by providing the opportunity to utilize pharmacological(More)
