Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) frequently metastasizes to lung, portal vein, and portal lymph nodes and most HCCs show strong resistance to conventional anticancer drugs. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are considered to be responsible for resistance to therapies. Hence, recent advancements in the use of liver cancer stem cells (LCSCs) are rapidly gaining recognition as an...

Inhibiting MDM2 has been demonstrated to be a valid approach for the treatment of HCC. However, most of the MDM2 inhibitors evaluated to date have been designed to block the MDM2 and p53 binding, and have limited efficacy against tumors...

Conclusions: Although HCC occurrence after DAAs was not high, recurrence was apparently high. Pretreatment alpha-fetoprotein is a predictor for de novo HCC. The time between HCC ablation and DAAs was the strongest predictor of recurrence.Dig Dis

Abstract The quantification of low concentration proteins can facilitate the discovery of some significant biomarkers, and provide us a more profound understanding of cell heterogeneity when applied to single cell analysis. However, most state-of- art single cell protein detection platforms are bulky, expensive and complicated. Here we report a simple and low cost microfluidic dPCR (digital polymerase chain reaction) chip-based proximity ligation assay (PLA) for the quantification of low concentration proteins. First, standard hCSTB (human cystatin B) protein was used to optimize the related experimental condition...
