BACKGROUND Accumulation of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the displacement loop (D-loop) of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has been described for different types of cancers and might be associated with cancer risk and disease outcome. We used a population-based series of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients for investigating the(More)
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA is prone to mutations due to proofreading deficiencies of HBV polymerase. We have previously identified hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) survival-associated HBV mutations in the X, precore, and core regions. In the present study, we extended our research to assess HCC survival-associated HBV mutations in the small S gene of HBV(More)
