Hem/Onc Today;9/10/2008, Vol. 9 Issue 16, p28
The article discusses research being done on the link of hepatitis B genotype C to the risk for hepatocellular carcinoma in Taiwanese patients. It references a study which appeared in the 2008 issue of "Journal of the National Cancer Institute." The study found that people with hepatitis B virus genotype C, precore G1896A and basal core promoter allele A1762T/G1764A were at elevated risk for hepatocellular carcinoma.
