Hepatitis B virus X protein (HBx) is involved in the pathogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Overexpression of the transcripts from the P3 and P4 promoters of the insulin-like growth factor-II (IGF-II) gene is observed in HCC. The present study investigated the involvement of HBx in IGF-II overexpression and its epigenetic regulation. Firstly, the(More)
Daclatasvir, a HCV NS5A inhibitor, is a new direct-acting antiviral drug for chronic hepatitis C (CHC). This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of daclatasvir combined with peginterferon-α (pegIFN-α) and ribavirin (RBV) for the treatment of CHC. The databases of PUBMED, EMBASE, COCHRANE, WANFANG, and CNKI were retrieved to identify eligible(More)
PURPOSE The expression of human insulin-like growth factor-II (IGF-II) is regulated by the activation of four promoters (P1-P4) acting in a development-dependent, tissue-specific manner. IGF-II overexpression associated with P3 and P4 activation is observed in animal and human hepatocarcinogenesis. We correlated P4 epigenetic alteration with P4 transcript(More)
BACKGROUND Human insulin-like growth factor-II (IGF-II) gene contains nine exons and four different promoters (P1-P4). Expression of the gene is elevated in the preneoplastic hepatic foci and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) of experimental animals and humans. To gain insight into transcriptional regulation of the gene in HCC, we analyzed the relative usage(More)
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with fluoroscopy guidance is a well-established technique for providing biliary drainage in patients with biliary obstructions. However, fluoroscopic facilities may not always be available and fluoroscopy carries a risk of radiation exposure. We retrospectively compared the procedure success rate and efficacy(More)
The insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) overexpression contributes to the development of a variety of cancers. The present study explored the role of IGF-1R in the development and progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and the possibility of IGF-1R silencing by lentivirus-mediated RNA interference (RNAi) as a therapeutic target for HCC. We(More)
