To assess whether hepatitis B and C virus infection were risk factors for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), antibody to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV, hepatitis B surface antigen and e antigen (HBsAg and HBeAg) were tested in 150 HCC patients.
Another 150 case-control pairs matched individually by sex and age were also enrolled.
Univariate analysis demonstrated that both the anti-HCV and the carrier status of HBsAg and HBeAg were signiFcantly associated with HCC.
Multi-variate analysis revealed that both anti-HCV and HBsAg were risk factors for HCC.
The population-attributable risk was estimated as 14.2% for anti-HCV alone, 59.4% for HBsAg alone and 8.0% for both anti-HCV and HBsAg in Taiwan.
In conclusion, both hepatitis B and C virus infection are independent risk factors for HCC in Chinese in southern Taiwan.
