|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Compensated Cirrhosis||Procedure: Ultrasonographic screening||Phase 3|
Patients: All consecutive patients with compensated HBV, HCV, alcohol or hemochromatosis-related cirrhosis (without any previous clinical complication including liver cancer).
Randomization: factorial: ultrasonography (3-month versus 6-month); serum alfa-fetoprotein assay (none versus 6-month).
End points: rate of small tumors (first main criteria); survival (second main criteria).
