Tumor Growth Factors in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

2014-08-27 03:27:16 | BioPortfolio


Malignant cells frequently produce many tumor growth factors to autocidal or endocrinal proliferate growth, metastasis,or angiogenesis about tumor cells. By studying tumor growth factors in hepatocellular carcinoma, one may know the tumor behavior, its relationship with clinical manifestation or invasion, and could be used as diagnostic or prognostic tools.This study aims to study the relationship between tumor growth factors in HCC ant its clinical relevance.


The clinical relevance of patients will be evaluated by the concentrations of tumor growth factors.

Sorafenib With Capecitabine and Oxaliplatin for Advanced or Metastatic Hepatocellular Carcinoma

HCC is an aggressive, largely chemo-resistant cancer with a poor prognosis, currently there is no effective systemic chemotherapy for HCC. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and vascu...

Recurrence and Distant Metastases in Hepatocellular Carcinoma Treated by Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization

This project will include at least 40 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who will receive transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as a sole method for the management. The...

Immunotherapy of Hepatocellular Carcinoma by Induction of Anti-alpha Fetoprotein Response

The secretion by tumor cells of alpha fetoprotein (AFP) was observed in 50 to 60% of hepatocellular carcinoma. The AFP can be used as a marker for tumor recurrence after treatment and may ...

GH, IGF-I and Somatostatin Analogues in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

The hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) represents more than 5% of all human malignancies, with more than 500,000 deaths per year (1). In Campania region, mortality for HCC is 2 times higher th...

Targeted and Staged Cyber Knife Combined With Interventional Therapy in the Treatment of MHCC

Hepatocellular carcinoma is a highly malignant tumor that is progressing rapidly. Hepatic arterial embolization chemotherapy (TACE) is a common method for the treatment of unresectable of ...

A Novel Drug, CC-122, Inhibits Tumor Growth in Hepatocellular Carcinoma through Downregulation of an Oncogenic TCF-4 Isoform.

Immunomodulatory drugs such as lenalidomide (LEN) have shown significant anti-tumor activity against hematologic malignancies and they may have similar actions on solid tumors as well. We studied the ...

A Phase 2 Study of Galunisertib (TGF-β1 Receptor Type I Inhibitor) and Sorafenib in Patients With Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

Inhibition of tumor growth factor-β (TGF-β) receptor type I potentiated the activity of sorafenib in preclinical models of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Galunisertib is a small-molecule selective ...

Nemorosone inhibits the proliferation and migration of hepatocellular carcinoma cells.

In the tumor microenvironment, dysregulated immune cells could promote tumor progression, invasion and metastasis, by establishing a symbiotic relation with cancer cells. A pivotal role is played by m...

MicroRNA-101-3p suppresses proliferation and migration in hepatocellular carcinoma by targeting the HGF/c-Met pathway.

MicroRNAs are involved in each stage of tumor development. Activation of the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)/c-Met axis facilitates the proliferation and migration of cancer cells, and the HGF/c-MET pa...

Modulation of YrdC promotes hepatocellular carcinoma progression via MEK/ERK signaling pathway.

Accumulating evidence suggested that YrdC involved in growth, telomere homeostasis, translation and the N6-threonylcarbamoylation (t6A) of tRNA was abnormally expressed in the progression of tumor. Ho...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The original member of the family of endothelial cell growth factors referred to as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS. Vascular endothelial growth factor-A was originally isolated from tumor cells and referred to as "tumor angiogenesis factor" and "vascular permeability factor". Although expressed at high levels in certain tumor-derived cells it is produced by a wide variety of cell types. In addition to stimulating vascular growth and vascular permeability it may play a role in stimulating VASODILATION via NITRIC OXIDE-dependent pathways. Alternative splicing of the mRNA for vascular endothelial growth factor A results in several isoforms of the protein being produced.

A carcinoma discovered by Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951. This tumor originated spontaneously as a carcinoma of the lung of a C57BL mouse. The tumor does not appear to be grossly hemorrhagic and the majority of the tumor tissue is a semifirm homogeneous mass. (From Cancer Chemother Rep 2 1972 Nov;(3)1:325) It is also called 3LL and LLC and is used as a transplantable malignancy.

A tumor, basically a carcinoma with a single sarcoma such as leiomyosarcoma or angiosarcoma or multiple sarcomas of uterine origin. The role of estrogen has been postulated as a possible etiological factor in this tumor. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1703)

A well-characterized neutral peptide believed to be secreted by the LIVER and to circulate in the BLOOD. It has growth-regulating, insulin-like and mitogenic activities. The growth factor has a major, but not absolute, dependence on SOMATOTROPIN. It is believed to be a major fetal growth factor in contrast to INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR I, which is a major growth factor in adults.

A transplantable, poorly differentiated malignant tumor which appeared originally as a spontaneous breast carcinoma in a mouse. It grows in both solid and ascitic forms.
