2 Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most frequent solid tumors and the third cause of cancer death worldwide. Recent estimates attribute to hepatitis B virus (HBV) over 50% of HCC cases worldwide. HBV-related deaths HBV infection <5% immunocompetent adults 30% of CHB CDC Division of Viral Hepatitis. Chronic hepatitis B: Information on testing % of CHB w/o cirrhosis Modified from Thornton K., et al A systematic characterization of viral genetic factors that can modulate the progression of chronic hepatitis toward HCC is still needed
3 HBV surface glycoprotein () plays an important role in modulating HBV oncogenetic potential. HBV genome The role of genetic variability in this region in the mechanisms related to HCC onset is not well characterized
4 Aims of the study The main goals of this study are: - To define the correlation of mutations with HCC onset in chronically HBV infected patients. - To characterize the impact of these mutations on the production/secretion and cell proliferation in in vitro models.
5 Materials and Methods This study includes 133 chronically HBV infected patients: 23 patients with HCC 26% 74% 110 patients without cirrhosis or HCC 27% 73% HBV Genotype A HBV Genotype D The distribution of HBV genotypes in HCC and control population was comparable thus minimizing the possible influence of HBV genotypes in the analysis of the two population groups Association of mutations with HCC was assessed by Fisher-exact test.
6 Materials and Methods HBV- wt / mut plasmids 1. mutations were introduced into a full genome HBV genotype D plasmid. 2. WT and mutated clones were then transfected into Huh7 and HepG2 cells. HuH7 and HepG2 cell lines HBV- wt / mut viral particles 3. Supernatants and cell lysates were harvested in triplicate daily until day 7 post-transfection. 4. amount (24 hours production) was quantified by Alexxis assay, cell proliferation and viability were evaluated by using FACS analisys.

12 P203Q, S210R and P203Q+S210R decrease secretion factor, suggesting their ability to hamper secretion The histogram reports the secretion factor for the wt and the viruses carrying the P203Q, S210R and P203Q+S210R. Secretion factor is defined as the ratio of extracellular to intracellular amount determined by the Alexxis assay. Average of 3 experiments +/- SEM are shown. The significance between wt and each mutant at each timepoint was determined using 2-tailed unpaired T-test. *P<0.05 **P<0.01 ***P<0.005.
13 P203Q and P203Q+S210R significantly correlate with an increased percentage of cells in the S phase of cell cycle 26±13% p< ±14% p<0.01 % cells in S-Phase 15±6% 18±9% 10±5% The histogram reports the percentage of cells in S-phase of cell cycle for wt and mutants at 7 days post transfection determined by FACS analysis, selecting GFP+ HepG2 cells. Statistical analysis was perfomed with chi-square test.

IPP < 20% Minority species 18,80 11,46 4,80 17,31 100,00 61,96 53,54 65,46 99,99 73,56 70, Control patients (N=24) 1,04 10,59 2, ,80 Limit of detection by standard population sequencing. IPP < 20% Minority species P203Q S210R Two additional HCC patients presented the mutation S210R as minor species with an intrapatient prevalence of 0.8% and 4.8%, respectively compared to bulk sequencing. In chronically infected patients used as control, the median (IQR) intrapatient prevalence of S- mutations associated with HCC was remarkably lower (11.5% [10.6%- 18.8%])
15 Conclusions Key mutations, residing in C-terminal domain, are highly correlated with HBV-induced HCC in CHB patients They affect secretion and stimulate cell proliferation in vitro, suggesting their potential involvement in HCC development.
