Core Tip This study shows the predominance of subgenotype A1 in liver disease patients in Kerala, and its high prevalence in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. Subgenotype A1 could be more hepatocarcinogenic and HCC could develop at an earlier age, regardless of host ethnicity. The S open reading frame of subgenotype A1 isolates from Kerala clustered separately within the ''Asian'' cluster and encoded distinct subgenotype A1 amino acids. A higher frequency of G1862T was detected compared with subgenotype A1 isolates from other geographical regions. This is the first time that preS deletion mutants have been described in Indian HCC patients.
