    Hepatoma-derived growth factor (HDGF) has been purified and cloned from a human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell line. HDGF and five HDGF-related proteins form a new protein family with a significant homology in their amino terminus containing a PWWP domain. HDGF is a unique growth factor...

    Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is often associated with metastatic disease and a poor 5 year survival rate. Patients diagnosed with small tumours generally have a more favourable outcome, but some of these small tumours are aggressive and lead to early death. To avoid harmful overtreatment...

    We report herein a clinical case of a patient with meningeal carcinomatosis from penile squamous cell carcinoma. A 68-year-old man presented with mental changes, headaches, and unstable gait. Examinations revealed brain metastases and infiltration of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid space by...
