Liver abscess caused by Cutibacterium namnetense after transarterial chemoembolization for hepatocellular carcinoma
Clinical Journal of Gastroenterology via Springer Link
A 72-year-old man underwent transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) for solitary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) located on the S6 segment. He had a history of anti-viral therapy for hepatitis C virus and was being treated for diabetes mellitus with inadequate control.

Photoactivatable metabolic warheads enable precise and safe ablation of target cells in vivo
Photoactivatable molecules enable ablation of malignant cells under the control of light, yet current agents can be ineffective at early stages of disease when target cells are similar to healthy surrounding tissues. In this work, we describe a chemical platform based on amino-substituted benzoselenadiazoles to build photosensitizers that mimic native metabolites as indicators of disease onset and progression.

Current perspectives on the tumor microenvironment in hepatocellular carcinoma
Hepatology International via Springer Link
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a heterogeneous inflammation-driven malignancy, which, despite significant advances in management, continues to portend a poor prognosis. Recent advances in basic and translational research have increasingly defined the role of the tumor microenvironment in the development and progression of HCC and facilitated the development of novel molecular targets.
