Hepatitis C Virus

Over the past 15 years the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma [HCC] has more than doubled. Every year there are 500,000 new cases in the Asia–Pacific region, often due to chronic hepatitis B virus [HBV] infection. More than 60% of the total number of HCC cases occurs in China alone and an estimated 360,000 patients residing in Far East countries, including China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan, die from this disease each year. In Japan hepatitis C virus [HCV]-related HCC represents 70% of all cases. In addition, in the USA and Europe, an increased incidence of HCV has led to an increased incidence of HCC. A relevant risk factor for the high incidence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is obesity and diabetes, which can promote the development of liver cancer. This involves a poor diagnosis and a low level of survival year survival rate: less than 5%] in patients with advanced HCC at diagnosis.
