microRNA-122 Abundance in Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Non-Tumor Liver Tissue from Japanese Patients with Persistent HCV versus HBV Infection


Mechanisms of hepatic carcinogenesis in chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C are incompletely defined but often assumed to be similar and related to immune-mediated inflammation. Despite this, several studies hint at differences in expression of miR-122, a liver-specific microRNA with tumor suppressor properties, in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) associated… (More)
