- Human hepatocytes produce an isoform of FAS that inhibits apoptosisS M Krams
Department of Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, California 94305, USA
Transplantation 65:713-21. 1998..The purpose of this study was to determine if soluble variants of Fas are produced in the liver and to determine if blockade of the Fas pathway, by liver-derived soluble Fas, inhibits Fas-mediated apoptosis...
- Does Asian race affect hepatitis B virus recurrence or survival following liver transplantation for hepatitis B cirrhosis?S K So
Department of Surgery and Medicine, Stanford Asia Liver Center, Stanford University School of Medicine, California, USA
J Gastroenterol Hepatol 14:S48-52. 1999..The incidence of post-transplant HBV recurrence was similar: 0% in Asians compared with 7% in non-Asians. There was no recurrence in the group of 12 patients who were HBV-DNA or HBeAg negative pretransplant...

- Apoptosis and allograft rejection in the absence of CD8+ T cellsY Ogura
Transplant Immunobiology Laboratory, Department of Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, 1201 Welch Road, Stanford, CA 94305-5492, USA
Transplantation 71:1827-34. 2001..CONCLUSION: These data indicate that in the absence of CD8+ T cells an alternative pathway, associated with granzyme B and FasL expression and activation of the caspase cascade, can mediate apoptosis and graft rejection...
- Long-term outcomes in pediatric liver recipients: comparison between cyclosporin A and tacrolimusS Cao
Department of Surgery, Loma Linda University Medical Center, California 92354, USA

- Liver transplantation in the first three months of lifeE S Woodle
Department of Surgery, University of Chicago, Illinois 60637, USA
Transplantation 66:606-9. 1998..Although infants in the first 3 months of life have not traditionally been considered a distinct age group, several features of these infants may distinguish them from other pediatric liver transplant recipients...
- Syk-induced phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase activation in Epstein-Barr virus posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorderO Hatton
Program in Immunology, Department of Surgery Division of Abdominal Transplantation, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA, USA
Am J Transplant 13:883-90. 2013..Taken together, our data indicate that Syk activates PI3K/Akt signaling which is required for survival of EBV+ B cell lymphomas. PI3K/Akt signaling may be a promising therapeutic target for PTLD, and other EBV-associated malignancies...
- Acute rejection of small intestine allografts is associated with increased expression of toll-like receptorsR O Castillo
Lucile Packard Children s Hospital, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, USA
Transplant Proc 42:2676-8. 2010..These preliminary studies suggest an important role for in innate immune system in acute rejection of the small intestinal allografts, and as such represents an emerging and promising area of investigation...
- Major hepatic resection without blood transfusion: experience with total vascular exclusionS K So
Department of Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Asian Liver Center, California, USA
J Gastroenterol Hepatol 14:S28-31. 1999..It further obviates the need for dissection of the porta hepatis and its associated risks. Total vascular exclusion time of 30 min appears to be well tolerated, even in patients with compensated cirrhosis...
- Epstein-Barr virus infection is associated with endothelial Bcl-2 expression in transplant liver allograftsM T Millan
Department of Surgery, Division of Multi Organ Transplantation, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
Transplantation 73:465-9. 2002..Bcl-2, an antiapoptotic factor induced by EBV in various host cells, is not normally expressed in the liver. We questioned whether bcl-2 is expressed in the transplanted liver and whether its expression is modified by EBV...
