Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), the most common type of hereditary colorectal cancer, is thought to be a simple Mendelian disease involving DNA mismatch repair genes. The majority of mutations associated with HNPCC occur in the hMSH2 and hMLH1 genes. The reported incidence of mismatch repair gene mutations in HNPCC kindreds varies(More)
BACKGROUND Transcatheter arterial embolization is a major palliative treatment for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma, but the survival benefit of transcatheter arterial embolization is controversial. AIM To evaluate the role of transcatheter arterial embolization in different stage of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma and to select patients who(More)
Elucidation of the basic genetic changes of human hepatocellular carcinoma is important for the understanding and treatment of this cancer. We used microsatellite polymorphism markers to study 30 cases of hepatocellular carcinoma (34 tumours) on all human chromosomes. DNA from 34 pairs of hepatocellular carcinomas and corresponding non-tumour parts was(More)
Caudal regression syndrome consists of multiple congenital anomalies, mainly caudal segment defects. We describe a preterm baby born to a healthy mother with typical caudal regression picture, including imperforated anus with rectovesical fistula, sacral agenesis, multiple rib and vertebral anomalies, and club feet. Crossed fused renal ectopia with fused(More)
