Utilize the remaining specimens collected under the DCP protocol to develop and validate markers for the early detection of HCC

Aims

Specific Aims Aim 1: To determine the sensitivity and specificity of des-gamma carboxyprothrombin (DCP) for the diagnosis of early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Aim 2: To compare the accuracy of DCP and Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) for the diagnosis of early HCC. Aim 3: To determine whether demographic or etiology of underlying liver disease alter the expression of DCP or AFP.
