We conducted case-control studies of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and liver cirrhosis (LC) in relation to hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis B virus infection, involving 91 patients with HCC, 75 patients with LC who had no evidence of HCC, and 410 control subjects from the Japanese population. Serum antibody to HCV (anti-HCV) was detected by both enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and recombinant immunoblot assay in 51, 51, and 3% of HCC, LC, and controls, respectively, whereas the… CONTINUE READING
