 Results from separate multiple logistic regression analyses examining the risk of HCC (v non-cancer controls) with each of diabetes, HCV, HBV, alcoholic liver disease, and haemochromatosis

Adjusted OR95% CIp Value
HCC, hepatocellular carcinoma; HBV, hepatitis B virus; HCV, hepatitis C virus; OR, odds ratio; 95% CI, 95% confidence interval.
All models adjusted for age, sex, race, SEER registry, and Medicare/Medicaid dual enrolment (n = 8244).
Interaction terms between HBV and diabetes, alcoholic liver disease and diabetes, and haemochromatosis and diabetes were not significant at a p value of <0.05.
