[Experimental observation on the alteration of metastatic potential and its gene function net of residual hepatocellular carcinoma following palliative liver resection].

OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of palliative liver resection on metastatic potential and its gene function net of residual hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in nude mice model. METHODS Orthotopic HCC model was established by implantation of human HCC cell line MHCC97H xenografts with a high metastatic potential. Thirty-six HCC-bearing nude mice were… (More)
