AbstractKey Messages1. Among hepatitis B virus carriers, infection with genotype C significantly increases the risk of developing hepatocellular cancer compared to those without this genotype.2. Among hepatitis C virus carriers, infection with genotype 1b increases the risk of hepatocellular cancer two fold compared to controls without this genotype.3. Such increased risk should be explained as risk over and above the existing risk associated with each infection.4. Hepatitis C virus genotypes1a and 2a are associated with decreased risk of hepatocellular cancer.
