BACKGROUND/AIM Over the past two decades, several advances have been made in the management of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT). Yttrium-90 ( 90 Y) radioembolization has recently been made a treatment option for patients with HCC and PVTT. However, there is still a need to systematicly evaluate the(More)
PURPOSE The multifunctional RNA-binding protein, CUGBP1, regulates splicing, stability and translation of mRNAs. Previous studies have shown that CUGBP1 is expressed at high levels in the liver, although its role in hepatocellular carcinoma is unknown. Our aim was to determine if CUGBP1 could regulate hepatocellular carcinoma growth. METHODS Expression(More)
To determine plasma apolipoprotein M (apoM) levels and other lipid profiles in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients compared to other chronic liver diseases and normal subjects. 36 HCC, 68 chronic hepatitis, 29 liver cirrhosis patients and 64 normal controls were subjected in the present study. Serum lipids, lipoproteins, apolipoprotein AI (apoAI) and(More)
Groove pancreatitis (GP) is a rare type of chronic pancreatitis, which primarily affects the groove area of the pancreatic head. Surgery is considered as the ultimate method for GP if the symptoms are not improved by conservative or endoscopic treatments, and the Whipple technique is the common choice at present. The present study introduces a novel(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Previous studies have determined that the absence of MyD88 enhances the tolerogenicity of dendritic cells (DCs), suggesting that inhibiting innate immunity may be a potential strategy to facilitate the induction of transplant tolerance by DCs. However, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. METHODS Recipient rats were preconditioned(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the common causes of cancer resulting in death in China. Here, we found that spindle- and kinetochore-associated complex subunit 1 (SKA1) is a critical factor that plays an essential role in the regulation of HCC cell proliferation and apoptosis. METHODS Using immunohistochemistry in 38 HCC tissues, we(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effectiveness of yttrium-90 (90Y) radioembolization in the treatment of unresectable liver metastases of melanoma. METHODS PubMed and EMBASE were systemically searched for all English language studies related to 90Y radioembolization for unresectable liver metastases of melanoma, including clinical trials, observational studies, and(More)
Hepatic inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT)-like follicular dendritic cell (FDC) tumor is a rare neoplasm. We herein report the case of 19-year-old female patient with an IPT-like FDC tumor and summarize 24 cases of hepatic FDC tumors previously reported in the English literature. The patient presented with complaints of abdominal discomfort, without significant(More)
Enhanced Myd88 expression has been found in various parenchymal tumors especially in hepatocellular carcinoma with little mechanism of its upregulation known. A lot of long non-coding RNAs are reported to regulate the protein-coding genes which have location association through various mechanisms. In our study we confirmed a new long non-coding RNA Myd88(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS PTPRO (protein tyrosine phosphatase, receptor type O) is implicated in diverse physiological and pathological processes in cancer and hepatic ischemia/reperfusion injury, although little is known about its role in hepatic fibrosis. METHODS Here, by using genetically deficient mice, we reported that PTPRO knockout (PTPRO(-/-)) significantly(More)
