Abstract Background Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a rare progressive liver disease, which manifests as acute hepatitis in 40%-50% of pediatric cases. This refers predominantly to spontaneous exacerbations of previously unrecognized subclinical AIH with laboratory and histological signs of chronic hepatitis, or to acute exacerbations of known chronic disease. Only a few of these patients fulfill criteria for acute liver failure (ALF). Methods Forty children diagnosed with AIH in our center betwee...

Background microRNA-139 (miR-139) is dysregulated in various types of tumors and plays a key role in carcinogenesis. miR-139 may be used as a diagnostic and prognostic biomarker of cancers. However, the data from the literature are not consistent. The present study aimed to verify the prognostic and diagnostic values of miR-139 in solid tumors. Data sources PubMed, Web of Science and Embase databases were searched and publications from January 2011 to August 2017 were included. We used Gene Expr...

Abstract Background Retinoblastoma binding protein 4 (RBBP4) plays an essential role in the development of multiple cancers. However, its relationship with prognosis in colon cancer and colon cancer hepatic metastasis has not been elucidated. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between RBBP4 expression and prognosis of colon cancer patients and to evaluate RBBP4 as a new prognostic marker in these patients. Methods Eighty colon cancer patients underwent surgical resection of th...

Abstract Background Borderline resectable pancreatic cancer may require extended resections in order to achieve tumor-free margins, especially in the case of up-front resections, but it is important to know the limits of surgical therapy in this disease. This study aimed to investigate the impact of extent of pancreatic and venous resection on short- and long-term outcomes in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Methods This was a retrospective study from a prospectively maintained da...

Abstract Background Previous studies have demonstrated the prognostic significance of pathologic tumor response in pancreatic adenocarcinoma following neoadjuvant therapy (NAT). The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of significant pathologic response to NAT in borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC), and association of NAT regimen and other clinico-pathologic characteristics with pathologic response. Methods Patients with BRPC who underwent NAT and pancreatic resection betw...
Abstract Background Hepatic radiation injury severely restricts irradiation treatment for liver carcinoma. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical application of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced MRI (EOB-MRI) in the assessment of liver function after external radiation therapy and to determine the relationship between focal liver reaction (FLR) and liver function. Methods A total of 47 patients with liver malignancies who underw...

Abstract Background Monocyte-derived fibrocytes play an important role in the progression of fibrosis in the skin, lungs, heart and kidney. However, the contribution of fibrocytes to liver fibrosis is unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether fibrocytes contributed to fibrosis progression in the livers of carbon tetrachloride (CCl 4 )-treated mice. Methods C57BL/6J mice were divided into 4 groups: normal control group, CCl 4 -treated group, CCl 4 + control liposome-treated group,...
