Background Several randomized controlled trials have shown that adjuvant immunotherapy with autologous cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells prolongs recurrence-free survival (RFS) after curative treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We investigated the efficacy of adjuvant immunotherapy with activated CIK cells in real-world clinical practice.
Background Recently, the concept of “late presentation with viral hepatitis” was introduced to help quantify the proportion of patients missing timely diagnosis and treatment for viral hepatitis. The clinical implications of late presentation of hepatitis B at the population level, however, are largely unexplored.
Background and Aims: Several models have been developed to predict tumor the recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after liver transplantation besides the conventional Milan criteria (MC), including the MoRAL score. This study aimed to compare the prognostication power of the MoRAL score to most models designed so far in the Eastern and Western countries. Methods: This study included 564 patients who underwent living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) in three large-volume hospitals in Ko...
Background Several conventional staging systems use tumor count as a variable for tumor classification; however, most conventional staging systems for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are not specifically constructed for surgically treated patients. The aim of this study was to create a prognostic nomogram based on patient’ clinical and pathological features for predicting individual patient survival after liver resection as a primary therapy for solitary hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related HCC.
