Bone marrow cells (BMCs) have been reported to behave as tissue-specific stem cells in some organs and to participate in tumorigenesis. However, the roles of BMCs in hepatic regeneration and carcinogenesis are still unknown. A choline-deficient, ethionine-supplemented (CDE) diet leads to the appearance of oval cells, a type of hepatic progenitor cell, and(More)

PRESENTATION OF CASE A 75-year-old male with no history of alcohol addiction or viral hepatitis was referred to our hospital because of an abnormal liver mass. Subsegmentectomy of the(More)
OBJECTIVES We carried out identification of a small peptide binding to human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells with the aim of applying the peptide for future HCC-targeted therapy or imaging. METHODS The biopanning technique using phage peptide display libraries was performed on HCC cells in vitro, and a phage clone expressing the HCC-binding peptide(More)
