Several staging systems have been developed to evaluate patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), including the China Staging System (CS), the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) staging system, and seventh edition; the Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) staging system, and Cancer of the Liver Italian Program (CLIP)(More)
High mobility group box 1 and toll-like receptor 4/myeloid differentiation factor 88 signaling pathway have been indicated to have oncogenic effects in many cancers. However, the role of high mobility group box 1/toll-like receptor 4/myeloid differentiation factor 88 signaling pathway in the development of gastric cancer remains unclear. In this study, we(More)
Here we evaluated the potential anti-pancreatic cancer activity by TIC10/ONC201, a first-in-class small-molecule inducer of tumor necrosis (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL). The in vitro results showed that TIC10 induced potent cytotoxic and cytostatic activities in several human pancreatic cancer cell lines (Panc-1, Mia-PaCa2, AsPC-1 or(More)
BACKGROUND Aberrant hepatic arteries (HAs) encountered during pancreatoduodenectomy are difficult to manage. MEHTODS Two cases with rare types of aberrant HA running through the pancreatic parenchyma were reviewed. RESULTS The first case, a 68-year-old man, was admitted with obstructive jaundice. A tumor of the pancreatic head and aberrant HAs were(More)
The analysis of complex network invulnerability includes empirical analysis and simulation analysis; there are many disputes on its measure method. Those methods can’t quantitatively describe the invulnerability of Network Topology. The paper analyzes the current measure methods of complex network invulnerability, measures the reliability and the(More)
The incidence rate of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNENs) has increased rapidly in recent years. However, the clinicopathological characteristics of pNENs are poorly understood. Medical records of patients who underwent surgery and were confirmed as pNENs by pathological examination from January 2003 to February 2015 in Qilu Hospital were reviewed(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to identify the effect of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) combined with 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) in comparison with PTBD therapy only on the treatment of unresectable Klatskin tumors (KTs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-seven patients with unresectable KTs were included in the study.(More)
BACKGROUND Duodenal-jejunal bypass (DJB) has been proven effective in glycemic control in various type 2 diabetes (T2DM) rat models. "Hindgut hypothesis" and "foregut hypothesis" are two prevailing theories to elucidate the weight-independent anti-diabetic mechanisms of DJB, however, which mechanism plays the dominant role that has not been illuminated.

Splenic artery aneurysm with arteriovenous fistula is extremely rare; however, it is clinically important because of the potential of aneurysm rupture and gastroesophageal variceal hemorrhage. Most previous cases were managed by surgery directly. We present a case which was successfully treated with combined endovascular embolization and open surgery. It(More)
AIM To investigate whether bile survivin and carbohydrate antigen 199 (CA199) can be helpful in distinguishing cholangiocarcinoma (malignant obstructive jaundice) from benign obstructive jaundice. METHODS Receiver operating characteristic curve was used to evaluate the feasibility of bile survivin and CA199 in differentiating cholangiocarcinoma from(More)
