Possible contribution to hepatocarcinogenesis of X transcript of hepatitis B virus in Japanese patients with hepatitis C virus.

Abstract

Serological research suggests that hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are associated with the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). It is unclear how genes of hepatitis viruses participate in hepatocarcinogenesis in patients infected with HCV. We investigated the expression of hepatitis virus-related RNAs in resected liver from 51… (More)
