PURPOSE We determined the gene copy numbers for MET, for its transcriptional activator MACC1 and for its ligand hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) in liver metastases from colorectal carcinoma (mCRC). We correlated copy numbers with mRNA levels and explored whether gain and/or overexpression of MET and MACC1 predict response to anti-Met therapies. Finally, we(More)
PURPOSE While definitive long-term results are not yet available, the global safety and oncologic adequacy of laparoscopic surgery for right colectomy remain controversial. The aim of the study was to evaluate differences in safety of laparoscopic right colectomy, compared with open surgery, with particular attention to cancer patients. METHODS A(More)
INTRODUCTION Autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is a rare pancreatic disorder among chronic pancreatitis that can mimick pancreatic cancer (PC). Patients with type 1 AIP usually present obstructive jaundice associated with high level of IgG4 in serum and a pancreatic mass at radiological imaging; these disorders may be associated with other organs lesions(More)

Although early allograft dysfunction (EAD) negatively impacts on survival from the first months following liver transplantation (LT), direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) have revolutionized HCV therapy. We investigated the EAD definition best predicting 90-day graft loss and identified EAD risk factors in HCV positive recipients. From 11-2002 to 06-2016, 603(More)
