The Au198 liver scan performed in 12 patients with liver cancer demonstrates an increased splenic uptake of the radiotracer in 58.3 per cent of cases. Because in liver cancer the hepatic blood flow was normal, we concluded that splenic visualization after Au198 intravenous administration, is due to the increased splenic reticuloendothelial cell activity.

    Abstract??Liver tissue ectopia is a well-documented phenomenon. Rarely, hepatocellular carcinoma arises from the ectopic liver tissue. In this paper, we report a case of a primary, well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma arising from ectopic liver tissue in the pancreas. The patient is a...

    Background: Our previous cDNA array results indicated KIAA0101 as one of the differentially expressed genes in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) as compared with non-cancerous liver. However, it is necessary to study its expression at protein level in HCC and its biological function for HCC...
