From: Interleukin-18 polymorphism as a diagnostic tumor marker for hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with hepatitis C-related cirrhosis

Variable Hazard ratio 95% CI P value
Smoking 1.44 1.02–2.11 0.049
DM 1.11 0.96–1.29 0.15
Male gender 3.96 2.65–5.93 < 0.001
Obesity 1.03 0.66–1.63 0.88
  1. This table shows the increase in the relative risk of both smoking and male gender in HCC patients (P = 0.049 and P < 0.001, respectively)
  2. P value < 0.05 is significant
