OBJECTIVE To explore the interaction between inheritance and environment with the aid of research on the genetic modes of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS A genetic epidemiological study of HCC was conducted based on the methods of Penrose, simple segregation and Falconer for 100 proband pedigrees from HBsAg positive cohort. The proband samples came from a cohort of 90,00 people who were followed for 8 years. Analyses on genetic modes were carried out and heritability was calculated… CONTINUE READING
