A prospective, randomized trial of butyl cyanoacrylate injection versus band ligation in the management of bleeding gastric varices
Endoscopic obturation using cyanoacrylate proved more effective and safer than band ligation in the management of bleeding gastric variceal bleeding.
Gastrointestinal metastasis in hepatocellular carcinoma: Radiological and endoscopic studies of 11 cases
The radiological and endoscopic features, clinical course and prognoses of hepatoma patients at the authors' hospital with gastrointestinal tract metastasis from October 1990 to January 1999 are described.
Endoscopic Variceal Ligation Plus Nadolol and Sucralfate Compared With Ligation Alone for the Prevention of Variceal Rebleeding: A Prospective, Randomized Trial
The combination of ligation, nadolol, and sucralfate (triple therapy) proved more effective than banding ligation alone in terms of prevention of variceal recurrence and upper gastrointestinal rebleeding as well asvariceal reble bleeding.
Drug Repurposing Screening Identifies Tioconazole as an ATG4 Inhibitor that Suppresses Autophagy and Sensitizes Cancer Cells to Chemotherapy
Tioconazole inhibited ATG4 and autophagy to enhance chemotherapeutic drug-induced cytotoxicity in cancer cell culture and tumor xenografts and suggest that the antifungal drug tioconazoles might be repositioned as an anticancer drug or chemosensitizer.
ATG4B promotes colorectal cancer growth independent of autophagic flux
It is found that ATG4B knockdown induced autophagic flux and reduced CCND1 expression to inhibit G1/S phase transition of cell cycle in colorectal cancer cell lines, indicating functional dominance of ATG 4B on autophagy inhibition and tumor proliferation in cancer cells.

It is demonstrated that serum TNF-alpha levels were increased in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, and associated with disease severity and nutrition status, and should not be used as a marker to early diagnose hepato celluar carcinoma in cirrhotic patients.
Endoscopic ligation vs. nadolol in the prevention of first variceal bleeding in patients with cirrhosis.
Comparison of hemostatic efficacy for epinephrine injection alone and injection combined with hemoclip therapy in treating high-risk bleeding ulcers.
The additive effect of sclerotherapy to patients receiving repeated endoscopic variceal ligation: A prospective, randomized trial
The addition of low‐dose sclerotherapy following repeated banding ligations proved safe and effective in the prevention of recurrence of esophageal varices and rebleeding.
A Prospective Randomized Trial of Esomeprazole- versus Pantoprazole-Based Triple Therapy for Helicobacter pylori Eradication
Esomeprazoles-based triple therapy demonstrated a higher eradication rate than pantoprazole-based regimen, and the differences in eradiation efficacies between the two study groups may be related to the more powerful acid inhibition effect and stronger anti-H.
