A total of 58% and 55% of patients had suboptimal vitK status (PIVKA-II
values >3 ng/mL) pre- and post-LTX, respectively, despite routine recommendation for vitK supplementation (>1 mg/d).
(26,66) A study on hemodialysis patients subjected to varying doses of mk-7 intake resulted in a decrease in serum dp-ucMGP, ucOC and PIVKA-II
levels significantly in the group treated with 360 microgram/day, but not at lower doses.
Keywords used for the search were as follows: (1) DCP: DCP, des-y-carboxy-prothrombin, des-gamma-carboxy-prothrombin, PIVKA-II, and protein induced by vitamin K absence; and (2) HCC: HCC, hepatocellular carcinoma, liver cell carcinoma, liver cancer, and hepatic cell carcinoma.

Thus, the renal tumor was controlled by repeated TAE, and the patient expressed low levels of serum PIVKA-II
and AFP for at least one year after the emergent TAE.
