Research Summary

Hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) viruses are the major etiological agents of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Both viruses frequently cause chronic hepatitis leading to persistent liver injury, liver cirrhosis, and eventually HCC. The molecular mechanisms underlying the viral pathogenesis and carcinogenesis are poorly understood.
