Core Tip First, for the first time, we identified immune-specific subtypes of hepatitis B virus (HBV) + hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) based on immune signature scores and demonstrated that this new subtyping method was reproducible in three different datasets. Second, our subtyping method captures the comprehensive heterogeneity of HBV+ HCC in the tumor microenvironment, genomic integrity, protein expression profiles, DNA methylation profiles, tumor stemness, intratumor heterogeneity, and clinical outcomes. Third, our data suggest that it is copy number alterations but not tumor mutations responsible for the different immunity between the “hot” and “cold” tumor subtypes in HBV+ HCC. Finally, our identification of the immune-specific subtypes of HBV+ HCC may provide new insights into the tumor biology and identify the HBV+ HCC patients beneficial from immunotherapy.
