People who used antiviral medications to treat hepatitis B virus (HBV) had a lower risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common type of liver cancer, according to studies presented this week in Boston at The Liver Meeting, the annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD).
