Genomic and transcriptomic somatic alterations of hepatocellular carcinoma in non-cirrhotic livers


  • Non-cirrhotic HCC genomically resembles cirrhotic HCC
  • Comprehensive genome- and transcriptome-wide profiling allows detection of novel structural variants, fusions, and undiagnosed viral infections
  • NR1H4 fusions may represent a novel mechanism for tumorigenesis in HCC
  • Non-cirrhotic HCC is characterized by genotoxic mutational signatures and dysregulated liver metabolism
  • Clinical history and comprehensive omic profiling incompletely explain underlying etiologies for non-cirrhotic HCC highlighting the need for further research
