Changes in Temporal Properties of Notifiable Infectious Disease Epidemics in China During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Population-Based Surveillance Study

Prevention policies for COVID-19 have immediate additional benefits for controlling most class B infectious diseases, and several factors (infection selectivity, preferred outbreak time) may have contributed to the reduction in outbreaks.

Effect of Body Composition on Outcomes in Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma Undergoing Radiotherapy: A Retrospective Study

CT-assessed SATI is an independent prognostic factor in HCC patients receiving radiotherapy, and further validation is warranted to determine whether this finding can be translated into other study populations.

Classification and Prognosis Prediction from Histopathological Images of Hepatocellular Carcinoma by a Fully Automated Pipeline Based on Machine Learning

The findings suggest that machine-learning models derived from image features can assist clinicians in HCC diagnosis and its prognosis prediction after hepatectomy.

APOBEC3B: Future direction of liver cancer research

The apolipoprotein B mRNA editing enzyme, catalytic peptide-like protein (APOBEC) family (DNA or mRNA editor family), which has been the focus of virology research for more than a decade, has been found to play a significant role in the occurrence and development of various cancers, providing a new direction for the research of liver cancer.

Conventional and genetic risk factors for chronic Hepatitis B virus infection in a community-based study of 0.5 million Chinese adults

In Chinese adults a range of genetic and non-genetic factors were associated with chronic HBV infection and CLD, which can inform targeted screening to help prevent disease progression.

Non-Invasive Prediction Models for Esophageal Varices and Red Signs in Patients With Hepatitis B Virus-Related Liver Cirrhosis

A new statistical model is proposed, the spleen diameter-splenic vein diameter-lymphocyte ratio-red sign prediction model (SSL-RS model), to predict the presence of red signs non-invasively and will be helpful in guiding clinical decision-making and preventing the occurrence of esophageal variceal bleeding.

Survival impact of additional induction chemotherapy in nasopharyngeal carcinoma with chronic hepatitis B infection: a retrospective, bi-center study

Compared with C CRT alone, IC + CCRT negatively affects DMFS and PFS in patients with NPC with chronic HBV infection; advocate withholding IC but administering stronger initial treatment in NPC patients complicated withHBV infection.

Annual economic burden of hepatitis B virus‐related diseases among hospitalized patients in twelve cities in China

It is suggested that as a whole in China, the HBV‐related diseases caused a heavy financial burden which was positively associated with disease severity, and the intangible costs of chronic HBV were notably higher than either the direct or indirect costs, consistent with the social stigma in China.

The Impact of Health Insurance on Economic Burden for Hepatitis B Inpatients in China

The survey of patients with HBV-related diseases in 3 county hospitals from 3 model regions in Jiangsu Province, China conducted between August and December 2012 found that hospitalization expenses have exceeded annual personal income for patients with URBMI and NRCMS.
