A 3D in vitro model of differentiated HepG2 cell spheroids with improved liver-like properties for repeated dose high-throughput toxicity studies
Immortalized hepatocyte cell lines show only a weak resemblance to primary hepatocytes in terms of gene expression and function, limiting their value in predicting drug-induced liver injury (DILI).Expand

Focal Nodular Hyperplasia and Hepatic Adenoma: Epidemiology and Pathology
Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) and hepatic adenoma (HA) represent the most frequent non-vascular benign liver tumors. They are often asymptomatic. The widespread use of high-resolution imagingExpand

Hepatic and extrahepatic scavenger receptors: function in relation to disease.
Scavenger receptors (SRs) have been of major interest in the study of atherogenesis over the past decade. They were first described for macrophages as alternative receptors to the LDL receptor in theExpand

Diagnostic accuracy of MRI in differentiating hepatocellular adenoma from focal nodular hyperplasia: prospective study of the additional value of gadoxetate disodium.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to prospectively determine the sensitivity of hepatobiliary phase gadoxetate disodium-enhanced MRI combined with standard MRI in differentiating focal nodularExpand

Comparison of interobserver agreement of magnetic resonance elastography with histopathological staging of liver fibrosis
PurposeMR elastography (MRE) can serve as an accurate surrogate marker of liver fibrosis. For any diagnostic test that is to replace the current reference standard, interobserver agreement should beExpand

Cell surface expression of mouse macrosialin and human CD 68 and their role as macrophage receptors for oxidized low density lipoprotein
We have previously identified a 94to 97-kDa oxidized low density lipoprotein (LDL)-binding protein inmouse macrophages asmacrosialin (MS), amember of the lamp family. Earlier immunostaining studiesExpand

Scavenger receptors on liver Kupffer cells mediate the in vivo uptake of oxidatively damaged red blood cells in mice.
In vitro studies have shown that damaged red cells and apoptotic cells are efficiently phagocytosed by scavenger receptors from macrophages, even under non-opsonizing conditions. Damaged red bloodExpand

Baseline hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) as predictor of sustained HBsAg loss in chronic hepatitis B patients treated with pegylated interferon-α2a and adefovir.
BACKGROUND In this study, we aimed to identify baseline predictors of response in chronic hepatitis B patients treated with a combination of pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN)-α2a and adefovir. METHODSExpand

Intrahepatic response markers in chronic hepatitis B patients treated with peginterferon alpha‐2a and adefovir
Background and Aim:  We investigated whether intrahepatic markers could predict response in chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) patients treated with peg‐interferon and adefovir for 48 weeks.
