BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most lethal malignancies and the identification of new effective therapies for HCC is urgently needed. We have previously identified EpCAM, one of the hepatic stem/progenitor markers, as a prognostic predictor of patients who received curative hepatectomy for HCC. In this preclinical study, the effects(More)
We report a case where resection was performed for pancreatic metastasis from renal cell carcinoma 21 years after nephrectomy. A 72-year-old man had undergone total gastrectomy with distal pancreatomy and splenectomy for gastric cancer, and right nephrectomy for primary renal cell carcinoma in 1993. Incidentally, a CT scan performed in 2014 revealed a tumor(More)
BACKGROUND Effective therapeutic combinations targeting the oncogenic pathway still are unknown in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The authors previously identified aberrant expression of aurora B kinase as the independent predictor for the lethal recurrence of HCC, showing that AZD1152 induced in vitro and in vivo apoptosis with polyploidy in human(More)
