      Treatment of HCC in Patients Awaiting Liver Transplantation (pages 1875–1881)

      M. Schwartz, S. Roayaie and P. Uva

      Version of Record online: 26 MAY 2007 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2007.01863.x

      Chemoembolization, radiofrequency ablation and ethanol injection have antitumor activity in HCC and are widely used to prevent tumor progression in patients awaiting liver transplantation despite lack of strong evidence that tumor treatment improves posttransplant outcome.

      In both a transplant assay and an in vivo killing assay, murine C57Bl/6 NK cells kill allogeneic Balb/c bone marrow targets rapidly in the spleen, through a perforin- and Ly49D-mediated mechanism, but killing occurs despite blockade of the NKG2D activating receptor.
