A strong association between alcohol consumption and the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma in cirrhotic patients : a case study.
We carried out a hospital-based, case-control study to assess the association of both the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection and the lifetime daily alcohol intake with the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC).
Cases were 62 consecutive inpatients of a Gastroenterology Division in whom a first diagnosis of HCC superimposed on LC was made.
Two control groups were used : 310 patients without liver disease, matched 1 : 5 with cases and randomly selected from inpatients of the same hospital, and 97 consecutive asymptomatic inpatients in whom the first diagnosis of LC was made.
Alcohol intake was quantified in all subjects by a standardized questionnaire.
