Molecular characterization of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) associated to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are increasing globally, but their molecular traits are not well characterized. Our molecular characterization revealed higher rates of ACVR2A mutations (10%) – a potential tumour suppressor, presence of a novel mutational signature (MutSig-NASH-HCC), a more relevant role of Wnt/TGF-β proliferation subclass in tumours (42%) and immunosuppressive traits in the adjacent non-tumoral tissue.

We collected 80 NASH-HCCs formalin fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples from 5 different institutions. NASH was diagnosed in FFPE samples by at least two expert pathologists following a described histological algorithm (Bedossa et al., Hepatology, 2012). All NASH patients included in the study were HBV- and HCV-negative. Patients reporting alcohol consumption ≥ 20 g/day for women and 30 g/day for men, as well as patients with a known liver disease superimposed to NASH were excluded. ... (Show More)
