Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a frequent complication of cirrhosis. Occurrence of HCC could be linked with multiple functional region of genome.

The determining of a genomic mapping of " single nucleotide polymorphisms " (SNPs) permit to perform some genetic link studies with pathologies without clear hereditary disposition.

In this study, the investigators will identify predictives genetic polymorphism of HCC.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Liver diseases associated with ALCOHOLISM. It usually refers to the coexistence of two or more subentities, i.e., ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER; ALCOHOLIC HEPATITIS; and ALCOHOLIC CIRRHOSIS.

FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to chronic excess ALCOHOL DRINKING.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER due to ALCOHOL ABUSE. It is characterized by NECROSIS of HEPATOCYTES, infiltration by NEUTROPHILS, and deposit of Mallory hyaline bodies. Depending on its severity, the inflammatory lesion may be reversible or progress to LIVER CIRRHOSIS.

Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.

An acute brain syndrome which results from the excessive ingestion of ETHANOL or ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.
