BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent type of primary liver cancer and its incidence is increasing around the world in the last decades, making it the third cause of death by cancer in the world. Hepatic resection is one of the most effective treatments for HCC with five-year survival rates from 50-70%, especially for patients with a single nodule and preserved liver function. Some studies have shown a worse prognosis for HCC patients whose etiology is viral...

MAP1S (originally named C19ORF5) is a widely distributed homolog of neuronal-specific MAP1A and MAP1B, and bridges autophagic components with microtubules and mitochondria to affect autophagosomal biogenesis and degradation. Mitochondrion-associated protein LRPPRC functions as an inhibitor for autophagy initiation to protect mitochondria from autophagy degradation. MAP1S and LRPPRC interact with each other and may collaboratively regulate autophagy although the underlying mechanism is yet unknown. Previously, we have reported that LRPPRC levels serve as a prognosis marker of patients with prostate adenocarcinomas (PCA), and that patients with high LRPPRC levels survive a shorter period after surgery than those with low levels of LRPPRC...

Hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) are the most common causes of chronic liver disease. Due to shared routes of transmission, co-infection with HBV and HCV is not uncommon. Higher rates of cirrhosis and hepatocelular carcinoma have been demonstrated in HBV/HCV co-infected patients. No treatment standard has been established for HBV/HCV co-infected patients. Treatment decisions must be made based upon identification of the dominant virus, usually HCV, thus patients should receive pegylated interferon alpha with ribavirin as for HCV monoinfection...

HCV infection may result in serious health consequences such as chronic hepatitis C, liver cirrhosis and hepatocelulare carcinoma. In lodzkie voivodeship, the data from 2003- 2008 demonstrate a slight upward trend. In 2003 there were 280 registered cases (incidence 10.76 per 100 000). In the year 2008, a number of cases (199) and an incidence (7.8 per 100 000) of hepatitis C was lower than in prodecting years. Hepatitis C cases aged 15-19 constituted the most predominant group. As observed previously the incidence in the urban areas was two times higher than the incidence in rural areas and the incidence in men was twice higher than in women...

OBJECTIVE: To construct a retroviral vector carrying HBX gene and investigate its expression in LO2 human hepatocytes. METHODS: HBX gene was amplified by PCR and subcloned into the retroviral vector pSEB-Flag to construct a retroviral plasmid (pSEB-Flag-HBX) expressing HBX. The HBX gene insert was confirmed by restriction enzyme digestion, PCR and DNA sequencing. The recombinant retroviruses carrying HBX gene were generated in 293T cells co-transfected with pSEB-Flag-HBX and the packaging plasmids pAmpho, and used to infect LO2 human hepatocyte...

Cryptogenic cirrhosis represents the third cause of cirrhosis in Mexico and comprises the clinical spectrum of NAFLD. Insulin resistance is the main factor in NASH development, as well as genetic and environmental factors. Derangement in insulin signaling pathways, either pre-receptor or post-receptor, causes insulin resistance (IR). The post-receptor dysfunction represents the primary cause of IR and links with metabolic syndrome, mainly diabetes and obesity. Prevailing metabolic moment will establish the IR status...

Since July 2006, the liver graft allocation has been changed from the waiting time to the Model for End-stage Liver Disease (MELD), prioritizing the sickest patients, who have a higher risk of dying on the waiting list, and sometimes in such poor clinical condition that it compromises transplantation outcomes. The aim of this study was to analyze the impact of a MELD score > or = 30 on 30-day survival after liver transplantation (OLT). We prospectively collected the data on 178 liver transplants on 163 patients performed from March 2003 to August 2007...

The tumour pulmonary micro-embolism is a rare condition characterized by the occlusion of pulmonary small arteries, arteriolas, and alveolar capillaries septales, accompanied of trombosis. Occasionally the development of pulmonary hypertension is the first manifestation of an occult neoplasia, in series of autopsies, an incidence from 3 to 26% has been reported in solid tumors, being clinical evident in 8%. Few cases have documented the development of this condition in patients with carcinoma hepatocelular, we report the case of a 16-year-old male who comes to the emergency with signs of cardiac insufficiency and cor pulmonare whose anatomopatological study confirmed a tumour massive microembolic compromise at pulmonary level and hepatocarcinoma...

As opposed to malignant secondary tumors, metastases of the colorectal carcinoma are benign tumors of the liver that are quite rare in the Czech Republic. From the 55 patients operated on since 2000 at our department for benign liver tumors, the most frequent are haemangiomas, focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) and hepatocelular adenoma. Only 7.3% of them form a different histological type of a tumor than this most frequently occurring trio of tumors. The authors describe three cases of rather rare liver tumors with benign behavior that have the potential of becoming malignant...

Cancer has been the leading cause of death in Taiwan over the past two decades and liver cancer is the leading cause of all cancer deaths in Taiwan with a trend of increase in incidence. Therapeutic options and efficacy for liver cancer have been limited and the 5-year survival rate is less than 7% in the Unite States. The study was conducted to establish a histoculture system of human hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) for biological and pharmacological studies and to determine the efficacy of anticancer drugs with the established HCC histocultures...
