Brief Summary:
Most hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cases were at advanced stage when diagnosis established. This study is intended to establish a clinical diagnostic model GAMAD for early-stage HCC and evaluate the diagnostic efficiency the same time. This study is a multicenter case control study. Participants including healthy control,HCC, liver cirrhosis, hepatitis and benign tumor-like lesions are consecutively recruited into the cohort. All the blood samples are collected before any treatments and will be tested in single center in order to decrease bias.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Hepatocellular Carcinoma Diagnostic Test: GAMAD

Detailed Description:
GALAD score including age, sex, PIVKA-II(DCP), Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and alpha-fetoprotein L3 (AFP-L3), is a serum biomarker-based panel that can aid in early detection among patients with a high risk for liver cancer. While increasing studies showed the diagnostic accuracy of AFP-L3 was not as good as that of AFP or PIVKA-II, and AFP-L3 was not significant in the multivariable model. Thus, a model with better diagnostic accuracy and more suitable for Chinese patients is needed. Here, based on a multi-locus blood-based assay targeting circulating tumor DNA methylation, we aim to develop a novel diagnostic model--GAMAD (gender, age, mythylation, AFP and DCP) and validate its performance among HCC patients and those at high risk of developing HCC,such as liver cirrhosis, hepatitis patients. This is a multicenter, observational, case control study. After giving fully informed consent, the participants will undergo the regular treatment according to NCCN guidelines.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Hepatocellular Carcinoma patients
Blood samples are collected before liver resection.
Diagnostic Test: GAMAD
Blood samples are tested for tumor markers including PIVKA-II (DCP),AFP, ctDNA methylation and biochemical tests.

Liver cirrhosis
The diagnosis of liver cirrhosis are based on triple-phase contrast enhanced computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging.
Diagnostic Test: GAMAD
Blood samples are tested for tumor markers including PIVKA-II (DCP),AFP, ctDNA methylation and biochemical tests.

Hepatitis
Patients with various hapatitis.
Diagnostic Test: GAMAD
Blood samples are tested for tumor markers including PIVKA-II (DCP),AFP, ctDNA methylation and biochemical tests.

Benign tumor-like lesions
Benign hepatic tumors were diagnosed based on imaging findings and histological examinations after hepatic resection.
Diagnostic Test: GAMAD
Blood samples are tested for tumor markers including PIVKA-II (DCP),AFP, ctDNA methylation and biochemical tests.

Healthy control
The healthy control group consist of people undergoing routine medical examination. Blood samples are collected.
Diagnostic Test: GAMAD
Blood samples are tested for tumor markers including PIVKA-II (DCP),AFP, ctDNA methylation and biochemical tests.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. GAMAD [ Time Frame: Day one ]
    Using GAMAD calculator model to obtain the score of each group.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
