Viral infections and chemical exposures as risk factors for hepatocellular carcinoma in Vietnam.
A case-control study investigating risk factors for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) war conducted in Hanoi, in the north of Vietnam, between 1989 and 1992.
Male cares of HCC (152) diagnosed in 2 hospitals were included.
Hospital controls (241) admitted mainly to abdominal surgery departments were frequency-matched to cares for sex, age, hospital and place of residence (Hanoi, province).
Odds ratios adjusted for matching variables and other potential confounders were estimated using unconditional logistic regression, or exact non-parametric statistical inference when numbers were small.
Positivity for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) was the main risk factor for HCC in this sample.
