Hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor (HGF/SF) has been shown to play an important role in tumor migration and metastasis. We therefore investigated the relationship between HGF/SF expression and metastasis of human liver tumors. The serum HGF/SF levels in 41 patients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC; 22 patients with metastasis, 19 patients(More)
Receptor-mediated gene delivery is an attractive method for gene transfer in vitro and shows promise for in vivo gene therapy applications. In the current study, we have selected the cytokine interleukin-2 (IL-2) gene to explore the feasibility of receptor-mediated gene transfer into human hepatocellular carcinoma HepG2 cells, using Epstein-Barr virus(More)
To study the therapeutic effects of herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (HSV-TK) gene transferred by the EBV-based expression vector (pDR2) on experimental hepatocellular carcinoma, pDR2-TK gene was delivered into human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line SMMC-7721 by using liposome-mediated transfection technique, and then gene expression was detected by(More)
