Three Hundred and sixty-eight case-control sets (male 287 pairs; female 81 sets) were collected for a hospital-based case-control study of primary Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) conducted in Northern Kyushu, Japan.
All incident cases of HCC were collected weekly from the inpatients (aged 40-69) of the Second Department of Internal Medicine, Kurume University Hospital between April, 1986 and May, 1992.
One control for a male case and 4 controls for a female case were sampled, being matched to a case on age (same 5-year age class), sex, residence (prefecture) and time of hospitalization (within 2 months after a case interview) from the inpatients of two general hospitals in Kurume.
