Combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinomas (CHC) are mixed tumours with both hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma (CC) components. CHC prognosis is similar to intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and worse than HCC, and staging and treatment generally follow ICC algorithms. However, the molecular biology of CHC remains poorly characterized. We performed capture-based next generation sequencing of 20 CHC and for comparison, 10 ICC arising in cirrhosis. Intratumour heterogeneity was assessed by separately sequencing the HCC and CC components of nine CHC...

FoxM1 is an oncoprotein that is significantly overexpressed in many malignancies including hepatocellular carcinoma, but its role in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) remains unclear. This study explores the expression of FoxM1 in human ICC, its relationships with clinical outcomes, and its role in the proliferation, migration, and invasion of ICC in vitro and in vivo . The results show that FoxM1 was markedly elevated in tumor tissues versus the paired peritumoral tissues. Overexpression of FoxM1 was correlated with multiple tumor nodules, tumor size > 5 cm, positive lymph node metastasis and advanced TNM stage...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Switch/sucrose non-fermentable (SWI/SNF)-related, matrix-associated, actin-dependent regulator of chromatin subfamily B member 1 (SMARCB1), also named integrase interactor 1, is one of the core subunit proteins in the SWI/SNF ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex encoded at chromosomal position 22q11.2. Complete loss of SMARCB1 expression has been reported in various malignant tumors. Immunohistochemistry has demonstrated that SMARCB1 mutation/inactivation correlates well with loss of nuclear SMARCB1 expression...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic carcinosarcomas, which include both carcinomatous and sarcomatous elements, are uncommon in adults. Although carcinosarcoma in hepatocellular carcinoma is occasionally reported, carcinosarcoma in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is an extremely rare ICC variant. Few such cases have been reported in English and no large study of its clinicopathological features exists. CASE PRESENTATION: Here, we report a 60-year-old man with an asymptomatic hepatic B infection who developed hepatic carcinosarcoma from an otherwise normal liver...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma (CHC) is a primary liver cancer containing both hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) elements. Its reported clinicopathological features and prognoses have varied because of its low prevalence. This study aimed to clarify these aspects of CHC. METHODS: We enrolled 28 patients with CHC, 1050 with HCC, and 100 with ICC and compared the clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis of CHC with HCC and ICC...

BACKGROUND: Non-monoexponential diffusion models are being used increasingly for the characterization and curative effect evaluation of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). But the fitting quality of the models and the repeatability of their parameters have not been assessed for HCC. PURPOSE: To evaluate kurtosis, stretched exponential, and statistical models for diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) of HCC, using b-values up to 2000 s/mm2 , in terms of fitting quality and repeatability...

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is the second most prevalent primary liver neoplasm after hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), corresponding to 10% to 15% of cases. Pathologies that cause chronic biliary inflammation and bile stasis are known predisposing factors for development of ICC. The incidence and cancer-related mortality of ICC is increasing worldwide. Most patients remain asymptomatic until advance stage, commonly presenting with a liver mass incidentally diagnosed. The only potentially curative treatment available for ICC is surgical resection...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) comprise the majority of primary liver cancers. Both HCC and ICC have characteristic imaging appearances on multiphase computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Several locoregional therapies, including radiation therapy, are used to treat unresectable disease and residual or recurrent tumor. The tumor response following locoregional therapies has variable imaging manifestations. Focal liver reaction, the imaging changes of the liver following radiation treatment, should be recognized and not mistaken for tumor...

BACKGROUND: Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas (ICCs) are primary liver malignancies and are the second most common type of malignancy after hepatocellular carcinoma. ICCs are heterogeneous in clinical features, genotype, and biological behavior, suggesting that ICCs can initiate in different cell lineages. AIM: We investigated intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma RBE cell lines for the markers neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) and c-Kit, which possess hepatic progenitor cells properties...

Background: Metabolic syndrome is regarded as a risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma. However, no research has been conducted to investigate the association between metabolic syndrome and cholangiocarcinoma (CCA), especially in the Chinese population. Herein, a hospital-based case-control study was carried out in China to explore the association between metabolic syndrome and CCA risk. Patients and methods: In this study, 303 CCA patients (136 intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma [ICC] and 167 extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma [ECC]) were included, who were observed at Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH), from 2002 to 2014...
