|Correlation between grading and staging of chronic hepatitis and protein kinase R in liver tissue|
|PKR gene expression in liver|
(HCV-4 related HCC)
|Spearman's correlation coefficient||rs||P-value||rs||P-value|
A significant positive correlation is obvious in which higher HAI and fibrosis scores are associated with high rate of PKR gene expression.
GII (HCV-4): group II with hepatitis C virus genotype 4; GIII (HCV-4 related HCC): group III with hepatitis C virus genotype 4 related hepatocellular carcinoma; HAI: histological activity.
Index; PKR: protein kinase R.
