Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio reflects hepatocellular carcinoma recurrence after liver transplantation via inflammatory microenvironment.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Although the Milan criteria (MC) have been used to select liver transplantation candidates among patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), many patients exceeding the MC haveExpand

Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition in an Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor-Mutant Lung Cancer Cell Line with Acquired Resistance to Erlotinib
Introduction: Mesenchymal status is related to “inherent resistance” to gefitinib or erlotinib in non-small cell lung cancer without epidermal growth factor receptor(EGFR) mutations. In addition, aExpand
