Abstract

HCV is an RNA virus that cannot be integrated with the host genome; it can, however, exert its oncogenetic potential indirectly by contributing to the modulator effects of the host immune system probably through a capacity to escape the immune system. We have carried out a case controlled study in a hyperendemic area on HCV infection and liver cancer. We screened 114 liver cancer and 226 controls. All patients were at first diagnosis and examined. For liver cancer the risk was (OR=32.9, 95% CI 16.5-65.4, p
