Key Words Hepatitis C virus; Interferon; Hepatocellular carcinoma; Alpha-fetoprotein
Core Tip What is current knowledge: (1) Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) values can predict development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after interferon therapy in patients with hepatitis C virus; and (2) The predictive value of AFP on HCC development after interferon therapy and its criteria remained uncertain. What is new here: AFP values before interferon therapy have strong predictive value on HCC development after interferon therapy. The simple criteria defined by AFP values before and 1 year after interferon therapy might work efficient to predict HCC development after interferon therapy.
