Increasing epidemiological evidence has indicated that inherited variations of mtDNA content could affect the genetic susceptibility of many malignancies in a tumor-specific manner. However, the association between mtDNA content and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains undetermined. In this study, mtDNA content of peripheral blood leukocytes was determined using quantitative real-time PCR in a case-control study consisting of 274 HCC cases, 126 non-cancer patient controls with chronic liver… CONTINUE READING
