The distribution of hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes among Egyptian patients positive for anti-HCV was determined and their influence, when combined with neu-oncoprotein overexpression, on the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was examined. The study groups included asymptomatic carriers (ASC) and patients with chronic active hepatitis (CAH) and HCC. HCV genomes were detected in the sera of 27 ASC, 29 CAH and 33 HCC patients known to have HCV infection defined by EIA and… CONTINUE READING
