MAGE is a family of genes specifically associated to human melanoma, but also found in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this study we evaluated the expression of such genes in 41 HCC patients, their correlation with pathological and clinical aspects of cancer, and the impact on prognosis. MAGE are expressed in most of HCC samples (28/41), no correlation was found with type and stage but they may be used as potential target for IT.

Abstract

MAGE is a family of genes specifically associated to human melanoma, but also found in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this study we evaluated the expression of such genes in 41 HCC patients, their correlation with pathological and clinical aspects of cancer, and the impact on prognosis. MAGE are expressed in most of HCC samples (28/41), no correlation was found with type and stage but they may be used as potential target for IT.
