  • Persistent infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major risk factor for development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, it remains controversial in the pathogenesis of HCC associated with HCV as to whether the virus plays a direct or an indirect role. The studies using transgenic mouse models, in which the core protein of HCV has an oncogenic potential, indicate that HCV is directly involved in hepatocarcinogenesis, albeit other factors such as continued cell death and regeneration… CONTINUE READING
