Expression of hepcidin mRNA is uniformly suppressed in hepatocellular carcinoma

Abstract

The present study evaluated the expression of hepcidin mRNA in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Samples of cancerous and non-cancerous liver tissue were taken from 40 patients with HCC who underwent hepatectomy. Expression of hepcidin mRNA was evaluated by real-time PCR, and compared in tumors differing in their degree of differentiation, number of tumors… (More)
