    JOURNAL OF SURGICAL ONCOLOGY, v.124, n.7, p.1040-1050, 2021

    Background Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4) is one of the most studied immune checkpoint in gastric cancer (GC). However, the prognostic role of CTLA-4 expression in GC is poorly described. This study aimed to evaluate CTLA-4 expression in GC and its impact on survival, includ...

    EBIOMEDICINE, v.73, article ID 103661, 13p, 2021

    Background: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is affecting more people globally. Indeed, NAFLD is a spectrum of metabolic dysfunctions that can progress to hepatocellular carcinoma (NAFLD-HCC). This development can occur in a non-cirrhotic liver and thus, often lack clinical surveillance....
