Why Is This Important?

A common risk factor for liver cancer is chronic HCV infection. Liver cancer is major cause of death in people with a chronic HCV infection. Also, there is an association between HCV infection and intrahepatic bile duct (IBD) cancer. This measure is important because it gives us an estimate if our strategies are successful in identifying people living with HCV and curing them of the infection, so they're less likely to develop cancer.
