Conclusions: Higher levels of MMP-12 expression indicated a poorer prognosis. PD-L1 expression was positively correlated with MMP-12 expression, indicating that MMP-12 may promote the development of HCC through the up-regulation of PD-L1. PMID: 31304819 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract BACKGROUND: Postoperative complications have a great impact on the postoperative course and oncological outcomes following major cancer surgery. Among them, infective complications play an important role. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether postoperative infective complications influence long-term survival after liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS: Patients who underwent resection with curative intent for HCC between July 2003 and June 2016 were identified from a multicentre database (8 institutions) and analysed retrospectively. Independent risk factors for postoper...

AbstractThe rapidity of the increase in the global burden of liver disease covered in this review with estimates worldwide of 2 million deaths from cirrhosis and with no signs of effective controls being introduced for two of the main causes, namely, excess alcohol consumption and obesity, is of great concern. The 25% prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in many population groups and the recent description of primary hepatocellular cancer (HCC) in obese subjects without underlying severe fibrosis/cirrhosis also raises many questions. In addition, covered in this review are more encouraging areas including techni...

This study aims to assess the relationship of HLA gene variants to chronic HBV infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: HLA variants were explored in 238 chronic HBV patients and in 238 individuals with spontaneous clearance of HBV using PCR-RFLP assay. RESULTS: The allele and genotype of rs9380343 polymorphism were associated with persistent HBV infection risk (allele: p=0.038, genotype: p=0.029), but rs3128917 polymorphism was not significant. Additionally, rs9380343 polymorphism was also related to increased risk of HBV infection in males (p

Many risks factors induce liver chronic inflammation, fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Mulberry fruits containing polyphenols to remove free radicals and mitigate inflammation has been reported to not only against gastric cancer, melanoma and leukemia but also prevent liver injury induced by alcohol or CCl4 in previo...
