Using Dynamic (99m)T c-GSA SPECT/CT Fusion Images for Hepatectomy Planning and Postoperative Liver Failure Prediction.
Ann. Surg. Oncol.
PUBLISHED: 06-24-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Available tools in liver surgery planning rely on the future remnant liver (FRL) volume. Inappropriate decision might be made since the same FRL volume might represent different liver functions depending on the severity of underlying liver damage. This study developed an alternative system to estimate FRL function and to predict the risk of postoperative liver failure.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The differentiation of distinct multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC): multicentric disease vs. intrahepatic metastases, in which the management and prognosis varies substantively, remains problematic. We aim to stratify multifocal HCC and identify novel diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers by performing whole genome and transcriptome sequencing, as part of a multi-omics strategy.

The national program for deceased organ donation in China.
Transplantation
PUBLISHED: 06-08-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
China has developed a new national program for deceased-organ donation to address the need for organ transplantation in the country. The program adheres to the World Health Organization (WHO) guiding principles, is compliant with the Declaration of Istanbul, and respects the cultural and social values of the Chinese people. The experience of pilot trials conducted between 2010 and 2012 was evaluated to generate a comprehensive design of a national program of organ donation and transplantation for implementation throughout China. The legal framework for this program was established from a series of legislative steps since 2007. Accountable national committees have been established to oversee activities of organ donation and transplantation across the nation. The Ministry of Health (MOH) has accredited 164 organ transplant hospitals in China, each of which has an organ procurement organization (OPO) to conduct organ donation and organ recovery. National protocols for deceased-organ donation in China include category I (organ donation after brain death), category II (organ donation after circulatory death), and category III (organ donation after brain death followed by circulatory death). The China Organ Transplant Response System (COTRS) has been developed to allocate organs equitably and transparently. Scientific registries have been established to evaluate the performance of transplant centers and OPOs. China is in the process of implementing a new national program for deceased-organ donation. The program includes a unique approach of organ donation, China category III, which will be promulgated throughout China and is intended to gain widespread acceptance of Chinese society.

Adoptive transfer of human gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells ameliorates collagen-induced arthritis via suppression of Th1 and Th17 cells and enhancement of regulatory T cell differentiation.
Arthritis Rheum.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Current approaches offer no cures for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Accumulating evidence has revealed that manipulation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) may have the potential to control or even prevent RA, but BM-MSC-based therapy faces many challenges, such as limited cell availability and reduced clinical feasibility. This study in mice with established collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) was undertaken to determine whether substitution of human gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells (G-MSCs) would significantly improve the therapeutic effects.

A pilot programme of organ donation after cardiac death in China.
Lancet
PUBLISHED: 11-10-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Chinas aims are to develop an ethical and sustainable organ transplantation system for the Chinese people and to be accepted as a responsible member of the international transplantation community. In 2007, China implemented the Regulation on Human Organ Transplantation, which was the first step towards the establishment of a voluntary organ donation system. Although progress has been made, several ethical and legal issues associated with transplantation in China remain, including the use of organs from executed prisoners, organ scarcity, the illegal organ trade, and transplantation tourism. In this Health Policy article we outline the standards used to define cardiac death in China and a legal and procedural framework for an organ donation system based on voluntary donation after cardiac death that adheres to both Chinas social and cultural principles and international transplantation standards.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Serum Golgi protein 73 (sGP73) is a novel and promising biomarker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, there are few reports on the pattern of GP73 expression in HCC and the relationship of this expression to clinicopathologic features of patients. This study aimed to investigate the expression of GP73 and it correlation with clinical parameters.

Golgi protein 73 (GP73) as a potential serum marker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has not been validated in large cohort studies. Furthermore, its significance in the assessment of tumour recurrence after HCC resection remains unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the value of serum GP73 in the diagnosis of HCC.

Characterization of the middle hepatic artery and its relevance to living donor liver transplantation.
Liver Transpl.
PUBLISHED: 06-03-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
In comparison with the left and right hepatic arteries, there is a relative lack of information on the middle hepatic artery (MHA). In this study, data obtained by multidetector computed tomography from 145 patients were studied to evaluate anatomical variations of the MHA, a hilar artery that primarily supplies hepatic segment 4. An MHA was present in 103 (71%) of the subjects. In livers that had a replaced left hepatic artery, the MHA originated from the right hepatic artery; in livers that had a replaced right hepatic artery, it originated from the left hepatic artery. It always arose directly or indirectly from the common hepatic artery, from which the gastroduodenal artery also arose. We classified MHAs into 5 types according to the anatomical variations of the origin. This classification may have major relevance to modern surgical practice related to living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The new classification of hepatic arterial anatomy may enhance the acquisition of further knowledge on arterial development, and its application may favorably influence the outcome of LDLT.

Prediction and identification of tumor-specific noncoding RNAs from human UniGene.
Med. Oncol.
PUBLISHED: 04-22-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) have been proven to actively participate in many diverse biologic processes. Some ncRNAs are strongly associated with tumorigenesis and could thus be regarded as tumor markers, or even as candidate therapeutic targets. In this study, we computationally analyzed the human UniGene dataset to predict potential tumor-specific ncRNAs, and then verified our predictions experimentally. We demonstrated that two of our predicted ncRNAs showed tumor-specific expression in non-small cell lung cancer and endometrial carcinoma, respectively. Genomic analysis of these two ncRNAs suggests that they might play significant roles in tumorigenesis and are therefore worthy of further investigation.

Liver grafts from hepatitis B surface antigen-negative and anti-core antibody-positive donors are safe for liver transplant. However, the use of hepatitis B surface antigen-positive liver donors in liver transplants is controversial. We assessed the safety and effectiveness of liver transplants using hepatitis B surface antigen-positive liver grafts to patients with diseases related to hepatitis B virus.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
