  1. Alcohol consumption as a risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma in urban southern African blacks.

    Article - En anglais

    Our purpose was to ascertain whether alcohol abuse is a risk factor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma in urban southern African blacks and, if so, to relate alcohol consumption to other possible risk factors such as persistent hepatitis-B-virus infection, smoking, male sex, in this subpopulation.

    A prospective, hospital-based, case-control format involving 101 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and 101 controls was used.

    The mean age of the patients was 53.7+-1.85 years and the male:female ratio 3.2:1.
