  2. 2. Senology Newsletter Page 2 of 3 Comment "Antiviral therapy should be used in patients with HBV-related hepatocellular carcinoma after curative resection" - Chun-Ying Wu, School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan "Tumor recurrence is a major issue for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) following curative liver resection. In the present study, we found antiviral agents can reduce one-third HBV-related HCC tumor recurrence after curative liver resection for hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related HCC patients,. Based on 100,983 HCC patients in the Taiwans nationwide database, we identified 518 HBV-related HCC patients receiving nucleoside analogues and 4051 untreated HBV-related HCC patients. After adjusting competing mortality, we found the treated group had significantly reduced 6-year HCC recurrence rate and overall mortality rate. We recommend antiviral therapy should be used in HBV-related HCC patients after curative resection".
