The aim of this study is to establish a clinical score panel based on clinical, molecular and genetic parameters that allow us to stratify and obtain an early detection of patients with an increased risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Further study details as provided by Fundacion para la Investigacion Biomedica del Hospital Universitario Ramon y Cajal:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Sera inflammatory markers [ Time Frame: 1 day (Routine visit to normal following in Infectious Disease Department) ]
    Inflammatory markers will be measure used a Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Sera apoptotic markers [ Time Frame: 1 day (Routine visit in disease following at Infectious Disease Department) ]
    Apoptotic markers will be evaluated through a Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of genetic polymorphisms distribution between study groups of relevant genes probably implicated in the disease [ Time Frame: 1 day (Routine visit in normal following at Infectious Disease Department) ]
    Genetic polymorphisms will be evaluated using Real-Time polymerase chain reaction technique

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Serum, plasma, white cells

Enrollment: 45

Study Completion Date: February 2015
Primary Completion Date: October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Grupo 0
Null or mild fibrosis
Grupo 1
Grupo 2
HCC diagnosis

Detailed Description:

Transversal study design like a "proof of concept".

Primary objective:

The main objective is try to stablish a descriptive panel (first phase of a score system) based in the conjunction or sum of several clinical and laboratory parameters (molecular and genetic factors). The aim is to detect in a fast, early and successful way those patients that presents a high risk to develop an hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the future in a specific population: HIV and HCV coinfected patients. The establishment of this panel will allow clinicians set up a correct treatment decreasing the probability of liver cirrhosis and HCC.
