- Risk of liver cancer among US male veterans with cirrhosis, 1969-1996. Persson, E C; Quraishi, S M; Welzel, T M; Carreon, J D; Gridley, G; Graubard, B I; McGlynn, K A // British Journal of Cancer;6/26/2012, Vol. 107 Issue 1, p195
Background:Liver cancer incidence rates in the United States have increased for several decades for reasons that are not entirely clear. Regardless of aetiology, cirrhosis is a strong risk factor for liver cancer. As mortality from cirrhosis has been declining in recent decades, it is possible...
- Transient and etiology-related transcription regulation in cirrhosis prior to hepatocellular carcinoma occurrence. Caillot, Frédérique; Derambure, Céline; Bioulac-Sage, Paulette; François, Arnaud; Scotte, Michel; Goria, Odile; Hiron, Martine; Daveau, Maryvonne; Salier, Jean-Philippe; Luk, John M. // World Journal of Gastroenterology;1/21/2009, Vol. 15 Issue 3, p300
AIM: To search for transcription dysregulation that could (1) differentiate hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)-free from HCC-related cirrhosis (2) differentiate HCC-free cirrhosis related to HCV from that related to alcohol intake. METHODS: Using microarray analysis, we compared transcript levels in...

Berman, Kenneth; Tandra, Sweta; Vuppalanch, Raj; Ghabril, Marwan; Sandrasegaran, Kumaresan; Nguyen, James; Caffrey, Helena; Liangpunsakul, Suthat; Lumeng, Lawrence; Kwo, Paul; Chalasani, Naga // American Journal of Gastroenterology;May2011, Vol. 106 Issue 5, p899
OBJECTIVES:We conducted a retrospective cohort study in cirrhotic patients to understand (i) the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after an initial negative screening computed tomography (CT) scan and its relationship with underlying etiology and (ii) the risk of extrahepatic...

- Impact of Etiology of Cirrhosis on the Survival of Patients Diagnosed With Hepatocellular Carcinoma During Surveillance. Trevisani, Franco; Magini, Giulia; Santi, Valentina; Morselli-Labate, Antonio Maria; Chiara Cantarini, Maria; Anna Di Nolfo, Maria; Del Poggio, Paolo; Benvegn, Luisa; Rapaccini, Gianludovico; Farinati, Fabio; Zoli, Marco; Borzio, Franco; Giovanni Giannini, Edoardo; Caturelli, Eugenio; Bernardi, Mauro // American Journal of Gastroenterology;May2007, Vol. 102 Issue 5, p1022
OBJECTIVES: Although the etiology of liver disease affects the features of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) diagnosed during surveillance, it is not known whether it influences patients' survival. We analyzed the impact of etiology on the characteristics and outcome of HCC detected during...
- Screening for Hepatocellular Carcinoma in Patients With Cirrhosis in the United States: Results of a National Survey. Chalasani, Naga; Said, Areen; Ness, Reid; Hoen, Helena; Lumeng, Lawrence // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Aug1999, Vol. 94 Issue 8, p2224
OBJECTIVE: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the dreaded complications of cirrhosis. Although there are no randomized controlled studies showing improved survival with screening, patients with cirrhosis are screened for HCC. Little is known about the practice of HCC screening in the...
- Carcinogenesis of primary liver malignancies. Dürr, R.; Caselmann, W. H. // Langenbeck's Archives of Surgery;Apr2000, Vol. 385 Issue 3, p154
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common tumors in humans today, and its incidence has been rising over recent decades in Western countries. The main risk factors for the development of HCC are viral infections (hepatitis B and C), alcohol use, and the intake of mycotoxins in...
