Hepatocellular Carcinoma is a type of adenocarcinoma, the most common type of liver tumor.
Research headed by Professor Xiujun Cai used the CRISPR/cas9 system to screen the entire genome of hepatocellular carcinoma cells (HepG2) under sorafenib treatment.
This study is led by Xiujun Cai (Department of General Surgery, Sir Run-Run Shaw Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine). Professor Xiujun Cai's research team screened the whole genome of hepatocellular carcinoma cells (HepG2) through CRISPR / cas9 system under sorafenib treatment, and screened the dominant gene in sorafenib resistance.
A new scientific review, published in Nutrients, highlights coffee's effects on digestion and the gut, and its impact on organs involved in digestion.
Clinician scientists and scientists from the National Cancer Centre Singapore and A*STAR's Genome Institute of Singapore, in collaboration with Singapore General Hospital, the National University Health System, Duke-NUS Medical School, Nanyang Technological University, and collaborators from China, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, have described a dynamic genomic landscape of tumour heterogeneity in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
In recent years, much scientific effort and funding has focused on developing drugs that target an enzyme with the unwieldy name of Src homology 2-containing protein tyrosine phosphatase 2 or more briefly, Shp2.
Oncotarget published "Global DNA hypermethylation pattern and unique gene expression signature in liver cancer from patients with Indigenous American ancestry" which reported that contrasting with this pattern, the age structure of HCC in Andean people displays a bimodal distribution with half of the patients developing HCC in adolescence and early adulthood.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. NAFLD patients are at higher risk of developing Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which causes severe and chronic liver inflammation, fibrosis and liver damage.
A recent study by researchers at the University of Jyväskylä was successful in partially preventing fatty liver disease in rats.
Liver cancer from too much fat accumulation in the liver has been increasing in many countries including Japan. In order to change this unfortunate state of affairs, it is important to improve the prognosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Volume 11, Issue 28 of Oncotarget features "Development and comprehensive characterization of porcine hepatocellular carcinoma for translational liver cancer investigation" by Gaba et, al. which reported that reliable development of Oncopig HCC cell lines was demonstrated through hepatocyte isolation and Cre recombinase exposure across 15 Oncopigs.
Who are we? Where did we come from? How did we get here? Throughout the ages, humans have sought answers to these questions, pursuing wisdom through religion, philosophy, and eventually science.
Infections in humans caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) represent a major public health problem. Despite the availability of effective protective vaccines, more than 250 million individuals worldwide are chronically infected according to WHO estimates.
According to a new study performed by researchers, “senotherapy” blunts the progression of liver tumor in animal models.
Liver cancer is one of the deadliest cancers. It is insidious and does not present symptoms until it has progressed considerably, at which point, treatment options are limited and chances of survival are low. The most common type of liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma.
