HCV-HCC RE methylation score can inform HCV-HCC diagnosis. Box plots include mean HEMS (hollow red diamond). p value indicates the significance of the mean HEMS differences, independent of age and sex. a The HEMS differed across groups in a dose-response manner HCV-HCC < EtOH-HCC < HCV-cirrhosis < EtOH-cirrhosis < normal liver. b Consistent findings in TCGA. In addition, HEMS was significantly lower in HCV- than in EtOH-HCC
