Overexpression of matriptase in tumor stroma is a poor prognostic indicator of extrahepatic bile duct cancer.

Pathol Int 2019 Feb 6;69(2):86-93. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Pathology, Jichi Medical University, 3311-1 Yakushiji, Shimotsuke-shi, Tochigi-ken, Japan, 329-0498.

Bile duct cancer is known to contain numerous fibroblasts, and reported to recruit cancer- associated fibroblasts by secreting platelet-derived growth factor-D (PDGF-D) which needs serine proteases, such as matriptase, to behave as a ligand. However, their expression pattern, and prognostic value have not been clarified. In this study, we investigated the clinicopathological significance of PDGF-D and matriptase expression in patients with extrahepatic bile duct cancer. Read More

Division of Surgery, Department of Clinical Sciences, Karolinska Inst itutet at Danderyd Hospital, 182 88 Stockholm, Sweden.

Introduction: Thermal ablation of liver tumours is an established technique used in selected patients with relatively small tumours that can be ablated with margin. Thermal ablation methods are not advisable near larger bile ducts that are sensitive to thermal injury causing strictures and severe morbidity. Irreversible electroporation (IRE) has the possibility to treat these tumours without harming the bile tree. Read More

Radiographics 2019 Feb 1:180164. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

From the Departments of Radiology (A.C., C.L.V., P.N., N.A.H., V.Y., F.H.M.) and Pathology (A.J.B., G.Y.Y.), Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, 676 N St. Clair St, Suite 800, Chicago, IL 60611; Department of Radiology, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Ga (P.K.M.); and Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Ariz (C.O.M.).

Intraluminal pathologic conditions of the bile ducts and gallbladder are common, most frequently consisting of calculi and adenocarcinoma. In recent years, intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile ducts (IPN-B), which is analogous to intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of the pancreas, has been recognized as a distinct pathologic entity and a precursor lesion to adenocarcinoma of the bile ducts. Intraductal tubulopapillary neoplasm (ITPN) of the bile duct was subsequently described as a distinct pathologic entity. Read More

Selective Chemoembolization of Caudate Lobe Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Anatomy and Procedural Techniques.

Radiographics 2019 Jan-Feb;39(1):289-302

From the Department of Radiology, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul National University College of Medicine, 101 Daehak-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea (H.C.K., J.W.C.); and Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Fukuiken Saiseikai Hospital, Fukui, Japan (S.M.).

Transarterial chemoembolization is the most common treatment for unresectable hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs). However, when an HCC is located in the caudate lobe, many interventional radiologists are reluctant to perform chemoembolization and percutaneous ablation owing to the tumor's complex vascular supply and deep location. With the advent of C-arm CT, rendering the three-dimensional display of the hepatic artery and detecting the tumor-feeding vessels are possible and can help guide interventional radiologists to the tumor.

Tumor Ablation Enhancement by Combining Radiofrequency Ablation and Irreversible Electroporation: An In Vitro 3D Tumor Study.

Ann Biomed Eng 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Tumor Ablation Group, Biomedical Science and Technology Research Center, School of Mechatronic Engineering and Automation, Shanghai University, 99 Shangda Road, Baoshan, Shanghai, 200444, China.

We hypothesized and demonstrated for the first time that significant tumor ablation enhancement can be achieved by combining radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and irreversible electroporation (IRE) using a 3D cervical cancer cell model. Three RFA (43, 50, and 60 °C for 2 min) and IRE protocols (350, 700, and 1050 V/cm) were used to study the combining effect in the 3D tumor cell model. The in vitro experiment showed that both RFA enhanced IRE and IRE enhanced RFA can lead to a significant increase in the size of the ablation zone compared to IRE and RFA alone. Read More

Single-stranded DNA binding protein 2 expression is associated with patient survival in hepatocellular carcinoma.

BMC Cancer 2018 Dec 12;18(1):1244. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Departments of Surgery, College of Medicine, Hanyang University222 Wangsimni-ro, Seongdong-gu, Seoul, 04763, South Korea.

Background: SSBP2, single-stranded DNA binding protein 2, is a subunit of the ssDNA-binding complex that is involved in the maintenance of genome stability. The majority of previous studies have suggested a tumor-suppressive role of SSBP2, which is silenced by promoter hypermethylation in several human malignancies, such as hematologic malignancies, prostate cancer, esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, ovarian cancer, and gallbladder cancer. However, an oncogenic role of SSBP2 has been suggested in glioblastoma patients. Read More
