BACKGROUND/AIMS We conducted a preliminary study to determine the feasibility of therapy consisting of intraoperative radiofrequency thermal ablation combined with portal vein infusion chemotherapy and transarterial chemoembolization (IRFAPA) for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODOLOGY Between September 2001 and June 2004, 34 patients(More)
AIM To investigate the hypothesis that the protective effects of curcumin in hepatic warm ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury are associated with increasing heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) expression and antioxidant enzyme activity. METHODS Sixty Sprague-Dawley male rats were randomly divided into sham, I/R, C + I/R groups. The model of reduced-size liver(More)
AIM To investigate the mechanism by which miR-204-3p inhibits the growth of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumor endothelial cells (TECs). METHODS Flow cytometry was used to identify HCCTECs and analyze their purity. Differentially expressed miRNAs in HCC TECs as compared to normal hepatic sinusoidal endothelial cells (HSECs) were examined using the HmiOA(More)
OBJECTIVE Objective of this study was to detect the expression of neuroepithelial transforming gene-1 (NET-1) and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and adjacent tissues, and to investigate the relation of the expression of NET-1 in HCC tissue with cancer proliferation, metastasis and clinic stages. METHODS The(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of microRNA-1 (miR-1) on tumor endothelial cells (TECs) of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS MiR-1 specific short hairpin RNA (shRNA) was synthesized and cloned into a recombinant lentiviral vector. TECs were then infected by the miRNA-1-shRNA recombinant lentivirus. TECs were divided into three groups: a control(More)
BACKGROUND Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury, which was commonly seen in the field of hepatic surgical intervention, impaired liver regeneration and predisposed to liver failure. Previous studies have shown gender dimorphic response of the liver for various hepatic stresses including I/R injury, hemorrhagic shock-resuscitation, liver cirrhosis, endotoxemia,(More)
BACKGROUND Although laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is a common and widely applied technique, the use of antibiotics during the perioperative period in infection prevention remains controversial. In our study, a meta-analysis was performed to assess the impact of antibiotic prophylaxis on the postoperative infection rate in LC. METHODS A literature(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the effect of a new antitumour immunity regimen that included microwave ablation, intratumoural microspheres encapsulating granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF), and blockade of cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4). MATERIALS AND METHODS C57BL6 mice with an established subcutaneous Hepa 1-6 hepatoma(More)
BACKGROUND This study systematically compared the efficacy and safety of simultaneous hepatectomy and splenectomy (HS) with hepatectomy (H) alone in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and hypersplenism. METHODS The PubMed, Web of Science, Science Direct, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases were systematically searched by two independent(More)
