  1. Risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in patients with hepatitis C virus infection.

    Article - En anglais

    Hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been suggested to play an etiological role in the development of B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in Italy.

    However, another study in Scotland questioned increased risk of development of NHL in patients with chronic HCV infection.

    A total of 2,162 patients admitted to 3 hospitals in Osaka, where the incidence of HCV-related hepatitis is highest in Japan, during the period from 1957 to 1997 were followed up from the date of diagnosis of chronic HCV-related hepatitis until 30 October 1997.

    Overall, 12,404.5 person-years of observation were accrued with a follow-up period ranging from 0.25 to 40.4 (average 5.74) years.

    NHL of the B-cell type developed in 4 patients.

    The interval between onset of chronic HCV and NHL ranged from 6 to 36 (median 13) years.

    Expected number of cases of NHL in the sex-age-and calender year-matched general population was 1.90, which gave a relative risk (RR) of 2.10 (95% confidence interval 0.57-5.38 ; p=0.247).

    Taking the much higher RR for hepatocellular carcinoma among patients with HCV infection into account, chronic HCV infection was considered to be moderately associated with increased risk of NHL.
