Synergism between the hbx gene and aflatoxin B-1 in the development of murine liver-cancer.

Abstract

Infection by hepatitis B virus (HBV) and exposure to dietary aflatoxin B-1 (AFB(1)) have both been implicated by epidemiological studies to be important risk factors in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Our ability to derive transgenic mice which develop liver cancer as a consequence of the expression of a single gene from HBV, the HBx gene… (More)
