Role of chronic inflammation in the pathogenesis of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis: lessons from a unique mouse model using melanocortin receptor-deficient mice.

Endocr J 2021 May 7. Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Medicine and Bioregulatory Science, Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan.

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a clinical spectrum that encompasses simple steatosis to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), the latter of which is characterized by chronic inflammation and fibrosis. NASH is now becoming the leading cause of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma worldwide. The pathophysiology of NASH is multifactorial and, therefore, not yet completely understood, although it is pointed out that hepatocyte death and subsequent inflammation play a central roles in disease pathogenesis.

Pharmacol Res 2021 May 6;169:105648. Epub 2021 May 6.

Department of Oncology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Zhengzhou 450052, Henan Province, PR China. Electronic address:

Phthalates (PAEs) are considered endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), a series of compounds able to disrupt the normal regulation of the human endocrine-system. In the present study, we investigated the roles of four PAEs, butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), dimethyl phthalate (DMP), and diethyl phthalate (DEP), in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells. We define novel roles for the PAEs on the migration of HCC cells via their enhancing of the interaction between the pregnane X receptor (PXR) and E26 transformation specific sequence 1 (ETS-1).

Dysregulation of the ESRP2-NF2-YAP/TAZ axis promotes hepatobiliary carcinogenesis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

J Hepatol 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Medicine, Duke University, Duke University Health System, Durham, NC, USA. Electronic address:

Background & Aims: Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), the hepatic correlate of the metabolic syndrome, is a major risk factor for hepatobiliary cancer (HBC). Although chronic inflammation is thought to be the root cause of all these diseases, the mechanism whereby it promotes HBC in NAFLD remains poorly understood. Here we aim to evaluate the hypothesis that inflammation-related dysregulation of the ESRP2-NF2-YAP/TAZ axis promotes HB carcinogenesis. Read More

A mutation in SLC37A4 causes a dominantly inherited congenital disorder of glycosylation characterized by liver dysfunction.

Am J Hum Genet 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Complex Carbohydrate Research Center, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602, USA.

SLC37A4 encodes an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-localized multitransmembrane protein required for transporting glucose-6-phosphate (Glc-6P) into the ER. Once transported into the ER, Glc-6P is subsequently hydrolyzed by tissue-specific phosphatases to glucose and inorganic phosphate during times of glucose depletion. Pathogenic variants in SLC37A4 cause an established recessive disorder known as glycogen storage disorder 1b characterized by liver and kidney dysfunction with neutropenia. Read More

Oncolytic adenovirus and gene therapy with EphA2-BiTE for the treatment of pediatric high-grade gliomas.

J Immunother Cancer 2021 May;9(5)

Department of Paediatric Haematology and Oncology, Cell and Gene Therapy, Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital, IRCCS, Rome, Italy

Background: Pediatric high-grade gliomas (pHGGs) are among the most common and incurable malignant neoplasms of childhood. Despite aggressive, multimodal treatment, the outcome of children with high-grade gliomas has not significantly improved over the past decades, prompting the development of innovative approaches.

Methods: To develop an effective treatment, we aimed at improving the suboptimal antitumor efficacy of oncolytic adenoviruses (OAs) by testing the combination with a gene-therapy approach using a bispecific T-cell engager (BiTE) directed towards the erythropoietin-producing human hepatocellular carcinoma A2 receptor (EphA2), conveyed by a replication-incompetent adenoviral vector (EphA2 adenovirus (EAd)).

Prevention of hepatitis B mother-to-child transmission in Namibia: A cost-effectiveness analysis.

Vaccine 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Health Economics Unit, School of Public Health and Family Medicine, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa. Electronic address:

Despite access to a safe and effective vaccine, mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of hepatitis B virus (HBV) persists in Africa. This is of concern since perinatally-infected infants are at highest risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma, a life-threatening consequence of chronic HBV infection. While tools to prevent HBV MTCT are available, the cost implications of these interventions need consideration prior to implementation. Read More

Possible contribution of hepatocyte secretion to the elevation of plasma exosomal arginase-1 in high-fat diet-fed mice.

Life Sci 2021 May 5;278:119588. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Environmental Medicine, Kochi Medical School, Kochi University, Kohasu, Oko-cho, Nankoku, Kochi 783-8505, Japan. Electronic address:

Aims: The elevation of arginase in vascular tissues decreases nitric oxide production, which is considered as an early step of atherosclerosis in obesity. Previously, we found that arginase-1, one of arginase isozymes, was elevated in the blood plasma of obese adults.

The human vault RNA enhances tumorigenesis and chemoresistance through the lysosome in hepatocellular carcinoma.

Autophagy 2021 May 7:1-13. Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

The small non-coding (vault RNA 1-1) is known to confer resistance to apoptosis in several malignant cell lines and to also modulate the macroautophagic/autophagic flux in hepatocytes, thus highlighting its pro-survival role. Here we describe a new function of in regulating and tumor cell proliferation, tumorigenesis and chemoresistance. Knockout (KO) of in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells reduced nuclear localization of TFEB (transcription factor EB), leading to a downregulation of the coordinated lysosomal expression and regulation (CLEAR) network genes and lysosomal compartment dysfunction.

Apigenin Inhibits the Growth of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells by Affecting the Expression of microRNA Transcriptome.

Front Oncol 2021 6;11:657665. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Pathology, Yueyang Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine, Shanghai University of Chinese Medicine, Shanghai, China.
