Abstract

The NBNC patients with HCC had a higher frequency of non-cirrhotic liver without liver injury. The presence of the HBV-X gene in HCC suggests a possible role of past HBV infection in the development of HCC. About half of NBNC HCC is associated with seronegativity for HBsAg and positivity for the HBV-X gene in liver tissue.
