Predictive Value of Expression and Promoter Hypermethylation of XAF1 in Hepatitis B Virus-Associated Hepatocellular Carcinoma Treated with Transplantation

Transcriptional regulation of the putative tumor suppressor gene X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein-associated factor 1 (XAF1) by promoter methylation has been related to tumor progression in gastric and bladder cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the methylation status and expression level of XAF1 in human hepatitis B virus (HBV… CONTINUE READING
