Authors: Attallah AM, Omran D, Marie MS, Abdelrazek MA, Salama A, El Essawey R, Mobarak L, Maklad S, Omar A Abstract BACKGROUND: A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the interleukin 28B (IL28B) gene may alter the trajectory of hepatitis C virus (HCV) chronic infection. Several studies have sought to determine a link between the IL28B rs12979860 SNP and the development of HCV-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but with variable results, consensus is awaited. We hypothesised that IL28B rs12979860 SNP is linked to HCC in patients with HCV type 4. METHODS: IL28B genotyping of 300 patients with HCV related...
