Tumors with oncocytic differentiation may occur in a variety of organs, but are extremely rare in the biliary system. Intraductal oncocytic papillary neoplasms (IOPNs) were first described in the pancreas to differentiate a rare subset of pancreatic neoplasm from the intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs). IOPN of the extrahepatic biliary tree has not been previously described. We describe the first case of an intraductal oncocytic papillary neoplasm at the bifurcation of the common hepatic duct in a 52-year-old white male with a two-year history of intermittent biliary obstruction.

    A new method for the synthesis of 188Re-Lipiodol without using a chelating agent and to evaluate the stability and biodistribution of the new agent in rats with hepatic tumors was attempted. Eighteen male Sprague -Dawley rats with liver tumors were sacrificed at 1, 24, and 48 hours (six rats at...

    2-Methoxyestradiol (2-ME) is a physiological metabolite of estrogen, which can inhibit growth of many types of tumor cells, including hepatocellular carcinoma, both in vitro and in vivo. The exact mechanisms of its action are still unclear. We have studied the mechanisms of growth inhibition of...

    A therapy gaining rapid clinical adoption involves radioembolization with the use of Yttrium-90 (90Y) microspheres. The 20–60 μm-sized microspheres are injected trans-arterially and flow to hepatic tumors given their preferential blood supply from the hepatic artery. Once they lodge in...

    Background: Unresectable biliary tract carcinoma is known to demonstrate a poor prognosis. We conducted a single arm phase II study of LFP therapy (5-FU (5-fluorourasil) continuous infusion (CVI) and Low-dose consecutive (Cisplatin) CDDP) for advanced biliary tract malignancies basically on an...
