It is 25 years since the publication of Milan criteria for liver transplantation in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the optimum management of patients progressing beyond Milan criteria on the waiting list remains a controversial topic. Ferrer-F àbrega and coworkers aimed to determine whether the policy of allowing limited progression beyond enlistment criteria permits acceptable outcomes. Patients were retained on the waiting list despite exceeding enlistment criteria if they did not present with macrovascular invasion, extrahepatic sprea d or cancer-related symptoms.

CONCLUSIONS: Based on a series of investigations, it was found that miR-30b-5p may participate in the peroxisome signal transduction by downregulating ABCD3-mediated module 1, thereby promoting the development and progression of hepatocellular carcinoma. Our research results not only provide a theoretical basis for biologists to study hepatocellular carcinoma further but also offer new methods and new ideas for the personalized care and treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma.PMID:34651050 | PMC:PMC8506137 | DOI:10.1155/2021/9458328

In this study, we identified a complete list of differentially expressed ncNATs in hepatocellular carcinoma. Among them, a previously undescribed ncNAT HNF4A-AS1L suppressed cancer cell growth by regulating its sense gene HNF4A, a well-known cancer driver, through a promoter-specific mechanism. HNF4A-AS1L selectively activated the HNF4A P1 promoter via HNF1A, which upregulated expression of tumor suppressor P1-driven isoforms, while having no effect on the oncogenic P2 promoter. RNA-Seq data from 23 tissue and cancer types identified approximately 100 ncNATs whose expression correlated specifically with the activity of one...

CONCLUSION: Our data clearly demonstrate that chronic fructose supplementation, as the sole dietary intervention, does not cause HCC development in rats.PMID:34650394 | PMC:PMC8494264 | DOI:10.29219/fnr.v65.7670

ConclusionThe presence of CTC clusters characterizes an aggressive HCC subtype. CTC clusters may be used as a biomarker in predicting the prognosis on each stage of malignancy in HCC, which provides evidence for formulating therapeutic strategies for more precise treatment.

Benjamin Heng As the second and third leading cancer-related death in men and the world, respectively, primary liver cancer remains a major concern to human health. Despite advances in diagnostic technology, patients with primary liver cancer are often diagnosed at an advanced stage. Treatment options for patients with advanced hepatocarcinoma (HCC) are limited to systemic treatment with multikinase inhibitors and immunotherapy. Furthermore, the 5-year survival rate for these late-stage HCC patients is approximately 12% worldwide. There is an unmet need to identify novel treatment options and/or sensitive blood-based b...

In this study, we first conducted detailed analyses of ANGPTL8/betatrophin expression in cancer/normal samples via the Human Protein Atlas (HPA), Gene Expression Profiling Interactive Analysis (GEPIA), DriverDBv3, ENCORI and UALCAN databases. ANGPTL8/betatrophin showed high tissue specificity (enriched in the liver) and cell-type specificity (enriched in HepG2 and MCF7 cell lines). More than one databases demonstrated that the gene expression of ANGPTL8/betatrophin was significantly lower in cholangiocarcinoma (CHOL), breast invasive carcinoma (BRCA), lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD), lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC), uterine...

Exp Cell Res. 2021 Oct 11:112872. doi: 10.1016/j.yexcr.2021.112872. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTInsulin, as a growth factor, can increase the risk of certain types of cancer. The present study showed that insulin promoted the proliferation of hepatocellular carcinoma cells in vitro and in vivo throughpyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2), which is a rate-limiting enzyme in the process of glycolysis. Moreover, the expression of PKM2 was up-regulated by insulin at the posttranslational levelin a nuclear orphan receptor TR3-dependent manner. In addition, insulin could enhance the interaction between PKM2 and TR3 and protect PKM2 from d...

Int J Clin Exp Pathol. 2021 Sep 15;14(9):920-937. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTHepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common and aggressive cancers. HCC shows high prevalence and lethality caused by a variety of etiologic factors. However, the underlying mechanisms and the diagnostic markers identifying patients at risk in advance has not been entirely elucidated. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a subgroup of non-coding RNAs greater than 200 nucleotides in length with no protein-coding capability. With the progress in sequencing technologies and bioinformatic tools, the landscape of lncRNAs is being revealed. Num...
