Acyclic retinoid (ACR) has been shown to be a promising chemopreventive agent for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after curative resection. The effects of retinoid are mediated by retinol-binding proteins (RBPs) through regulating cell proliferation and differentiation. This study investigated the clinical significance of RBP5 in HCC. RBP5 mRNA level was… CONTINUE READING
