When assessing outcome in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), it is important to consider prognostic factors in background non-tumorous liver tissue as well as in the tumor, since multiple occurrence is associated with background liver status such as hepatitis. The current study aimed to elucidate molecular prognostic predictors that have an association with HCC background non-tumorous tissue. Microarray expression profiling identified aldo-keto reductase family 1, member B10 (AKR1B10) as a putative non-tumorous prognostic factor, and AKR1B10 gene expression was investigated in 158 curatively resected HCC cases by reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction...

The present study aimed to investigate the blocking of tumor cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix, the prevention of tumor metastasis by the β peptide trimer β3, as well as the influence of β3 on the recurrence and survival time of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) nude mice model LCI-D20 after early resection. To this end, the DNA fragment of the β3 peptide (DLYYLMDLSYSMKGGDLYYLMDLSYSMKGGDLYYLMDLSYSMK) was cloned into the expression vector pET-His and the fusion protein His-β3 was expressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3) plysS...

The prognosis of advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is dismal. Novel molecular targets for diagnosis and therapy is urgently required. This study evaluated expression and functions of the protein arginine methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) in HCC. Using HCC cell lines, the expression levels of PRMT5 mRNA were determined using the quantitative real-time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction, and the effect of a small interfering PRMT5-siRNA on cell phenotype was evaluated. Further, PRMT5 expression was determined in 144 pairs of resected liver tissues to evaluate its clinical significance...

Liver resection is still the most commonly used therapeutic option for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) at present, and liver regeneration promotes HCC growth in the regenerating liver. The higher recurrence/metastasis of HCC is the main cause of death for HCC patients after liver resection. However, it remains unclear how to abolish the augmented growth and metastasis of the possible residual HCC induced by the promoted liver regeneration after liver resection. In this study, a rat model with liver cirrhosis and diffused HCC was established by Diethylnitrosamine administration, recombinant miR-203 adenovirus was administered to induce hepatic miR-203 overexpression and 30% partial hepatectomy (PH) was followed, then the effect of miR-203 on the proliferation, invasion and metastasis of the residual HCC in the remnant cirrhotic liver with promoted regeneration was investigated...

REVIEW
Ka Wing Ma, Tan To Cheung
Localized hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) refers to a solitary or few tumors located within either the left or right hemiliver without evidence of bilobar or extrahepatic spread. This term encompasses a heterogeneous morphology with no regard to stage of prognosis of the disease. Surgical resection remains the mainstay of curative treatment for the localized HCC. Various biochemical and radiological tests constitute an indispensible part of preoperative assessment. Emergence of laparoscopic hepatectomy has brought liver resection into a new era...

Exploring the biological functions of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) has come to the foreground in recent years. Studies have indicated that the lncRNA metastasis‑associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) not only regulates tumorigenesis in hepatocellular carcinoma, but also controls cell cycle progression in hematopoietic cells. The present study was designed to investigate the biological role of lncRNA MALAT1 in liver regeneration. We carried out a series of assays during liver regeneration following 2/3 partial hepatectomy in mice...

Importance: Background hepatocarcinogenesis is considered a major cause of postoperative recurrence of de novo hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC). The degree of underlying liver injury has reportedly correlated with surgical outcomes of HCC. However, the pattern and annual rate of recurrence of postoperative de novo HCC are still unclear. Objective: To clarify the pattern and rate of recurrence of de novo HCC in patients with LC...

:  Introduction and aims. Liver resection is the treatment of choice for many primary and secondary liver diseases. Most studies in the elderly have reported resection of primary and secondary liver tumors, especially hepatocellular carcinoma and colorectal metastatic cancer. However, over the last two decades, hepatectomy has become safe and is now performed in the older population, implying a paradigm shift in the approach to these patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated the risk factors for postoperative complications in patients over 65 years of age in comparison with those under 65 years of age after liver resection (n = 360)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Liver cirrhosis (LC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are associated with viral hepatitis, especially hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Whether differences exist in postoperative de novo carcinogenesis from established cirrhosis according to viral etiology remains unclear. METHODS: Data from 313 LC patients with viral hepatitis (HBV-LC, n = 108 and HCV-LC, n = 205) who underwent curative-intent hepatectomy for HCC were retrospectively collected...

INTRODUCTION: The intra-operative detection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by ultrasonography is indispensable for laparoscopic partial hepatectomy. However, it is occasionally difficult to localize an HCC on an ultrasound in chronic liver disease. Two cases of partial hepatectomy using hookwire marking under CT guidance are presented. MATERIALS AND SURGICAL TECHNIQUE: The location of the HCC was identified by CT scan, and the puncture site was determined. A hookwire system, made of a stainless steel hook, was used to localize the HCC...

BACKGROUND: Assessing the outcomes of surgeries for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients who exceed the Milan criteria is necessary. Some studies have demonstrated that preoperative or postoperative alpha fetoprotein (AFP) can predict HCC patients' prognoses. METHODS: A total of 280 HCC patients who were positive for AFP and received curative resection were retrospectively analyzed. The patients were classified into three groups according to their preoperative and postoperative AFP levels (group A: normalized AFP; group B: AFP decreases >50%, but continued abnormality; and group C: AFP decreases <50%)...
