ConclusionIn this review, we summarize pathways and mechanisms of ferroptosis in HCC and other digestive system neoplasms such as gastric cancer, pancreatic cancer and colorectal cancer and point out the trends of ferroptosis in HCC.
Dante Labs sent me their Full DNA whole genome sequencing package, and I went through a roller-coaster of feelings: I was excited to know every secret of my cells, but I was afraid to get to know my hereditary cancer risks and worried what I might find. As in my case, (scientific) curiosity usually overrides fear, I jumped into the unknown and I’m eager to share my results here. Whole genome sequencing is available to anyone. So what? The human genome is the blueprint for building a person. When the Human Genome Project was completed in 2006, and the DNA double spiral uncovered its secrets for the very first time, sc...
