Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) develops on the background of chronic hepatitis. Leukocytes found within the HCC microenvironment are implicated as regulators of tumour growth. We show that diethylnitrosamine (DEN)-induced murine HCC is attenuated by antibody-mediated depletion of hepatic neutrophils, the latter stimulating hepatocellular ROS and telomere(More)
iii Acknowledgements I would like to thank my thesis advisor Marc Freeman for all of his guidance and support and always having a box of tissues in his office. I am eternally grateful that he always believed in me and gave me the opportunity to perform my graduate work in his lab. I wish everyone had a mentor that was as optimistic and excited about science(More)

We evaluate the hyperpfaffian of a skew-symmetric k-ary function polynomial f of degree k/2 · (n − 1). The result is a product of the Vandermonde product and a certain expression involving the coefficients of the polynomial f. The proof utilizes a sign reversing involution on a set of weighted, oriented partitions. When restricting to the classical case(More)
