Haplotypes of microsomal epoxide hydrolase and x-ray cross-complementing group 1 genes in Indian hepatocellular carcinoma patients.


Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a life-threatening disease that is often associated with chronic infection by hepatitis B and C viruses. Genetic polymorphisms have been reported to alter the risk for HCC development. Genetic studies based on the haplotype have an increased power for detecting disease associations compared with single-nucleotide… (More)
