Although intrahepatic cholangiocellular carcinoma (ICC) has a relatively low incidence rate, it ranks the second in the most common primary malignant liver tumors, with hepatocellular carcinoma ranking the first. Meanwhile, its incidence and mortality rates tend to increase significantly in the past decades. On the one hand, due to a lack of characteristic clinical symptoms, specific tumor markers, and imaging findings, early diagnosis of ICC is extremely difficult; on the other hand, ICC has highly malignant biological behaviors and early extrahepatic metastasis, so patients often experience early recurrence even if surgical resection is performed, which leads to the poor prognosis of such patients...

AIM: To examine the influence on apoptotic mechanisms following inhibition of polo-like kinases as therapeutically approach for cholangiocellular cancer treatment. METHODS: As most cholangiocarcinomas are chemotherapy-resistant due to mechanisms preventing tumor cell death, we investigated the effect of Cisplatin on cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCA) cell lines KMCH-1 and Mz-Ch-1. Polo-like kinases (PLK) are important regulators of the cell cycle and their inhibition is discussed as a potential therapy while PLK inhibition can regulate apoptotic mediators...

We described magnetic resonance (MR) features of peribiliary metastasis and of periductal infiltrative cholangiocarcinoma. We assessed 35 patients, with peribiliary lesions, using MR 4-point confidence scale. T1-weighted (T1-W), T2-weighted (T2-W) and diffusion-weighted images (DWI) signal intensity, enhancement pattern during arterial, portal, equilibrium and hepatobiliary phase were assessed. We identified 24 patients with periductal-infiltrating cholangiocellular carcinoma. The lesions in 34 patients appeared as a single tissue, while in a single patient, the lesions appeared as multiple individual lesions...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNAs regulate gene expression by inhibiting the turnover of their target mRNAs. In the last years, it became apparent that miRNAs are released into the circulation and circulating miRNAs emerged as a new class of biomarkers for various diseases. In this review we summarize available data on the role of circulating miRNAs in the context of acute and chronic liver diseases including hepatocellular and cholangiocellular carcinoma. Data from animal models are compared to human data and current challenges in the field of miRNAs research are discussed...

High mobility group A1 (HMGA1) protein has been described to play an important role in numerous types of human carcinoma. By the modulation of several target genes HMGA1 promotes proliferation and epithelial-mesenchymal transition of tumor cells. However, its role in cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) has not been addressed yet. Therefore, we determined HMGA1 mRNA expression in CCA samples in a transcriptome array (n = 104) and a smaller cohort (n = 13) by qRT-PCR. Protein expression was evaluated by immunohistochemistry in a tissue microarray (n = 67)...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The behavior of tumor markers in biliary tract malignancies is not well-known and has been scarcely studied. Such markers could play important roles in diagnostic and prognostic schemes as well as in decision-making about the best treatment strategies. This study analyzed the preoperative serum levels of conventional tumor markers (AFP, CEA, CA 19-9, CA 72-4), proliferative marker thymidine kinase (TK) and cytokeratins (TPA, TPS and CYFRA 21.1) in patients with gallbladder carcinoma, bile duct carcinoma (Klatskin) and cholangiocellular carcinoma, in relation to the patient prognosis...

Introduction. Most investigations on autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) were published on Asian cohorts while those on Caucasians are limited. However, there might be differences related to the origin. Patients and Methods. We analyzed 36 patients and compared type 1 (AIP1) with type 2 (AIP2). Results. The majority of patients suffered from AIP1 (55.6%). AIP1 patients were significantly older than AIP2 patients (54.4 versus 40.8 years). Moreover, 85.0% of AIP1 patients had concurrent autoimmune cholangitis (AIC) while 18...

BACKGROUND: Cholangiocarcinomas (CCAs) are aggressive malignancies that display features of biliary differentiation. According to their anatomical location, CCAs are commonly classified as intrahepatic and extrahepatic tumors, the latter entity being further subdivided into perihilar CCAs, also termed as Klatskin tumors, and distal tumors. While a majority of CCAs occur sporadically, established risk factors such as liver fluke infestation or primary sclerosing cholangitis exist. SUMMARY: Due to lack of efficient early screening markers, CCAs are frequently diagnosed at an advanced stage when curative surgical resection is not an option...

BACKGROUND: Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is a valuable tool in the diagnostic approach of focal liver lesions, but occasionally subjective and observer-dependent. Semiquantitative evaluation of dynamic CEUS (DCEUS) with standardised software programmes such as Dynamic Vascular Pattern (DVP) could help to improve diagnostic accuracy and objectivity in liver tumour assessment. OBJECTIVES: The present study aimed at evaluation of diagnostic accuracy of DVP in a clinical setting...

A 50-year-old woman had a 12mm liver tumor at segment 4 and was diagnosed with hemangioma. Two years later, the liver tumor had grown to 27mm in diameter, and a new pancreatic tumor was detected using CT examination. The pancreatic tumor was suspected of being pancreatic carcinoma, based on the results of endoscopic-ultrasound-guided fine-needlebiopsy( EUS-FNA)of the pancreas. The liver tumor was diagnosed as adenocarcinoma using liver biopsy. Because of its slow growth and the solitary liver tumor, synchronous pancreatic cancer and intrahepatic cancer were suspected...
