    Hepatitis D virus (HDV): HDV may induce fulminant hepatic failure or aggravates underlying hepatitis B. There are 8 genotypes of HDV and genetic heterogeneities among different genotypes. In our previous studies, we have discovered major transmission routes of HDV infection which leads to the reduction of acute HDV infection, novel HDV genotype 4, factors associated with disease progression, HDV recombination in immunogenic domains that leads to immune escape, cytotoxic T cell epitope associated with immune selection of HDV variants in quasi-species, and viral determinants associated with genotypic distribution in the world, We will continue to study the mechanisms of HDV genotypes and mutations on viral replication, assembly and pathogenesis. Mechanisms and prediction of postoperative recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC): Resection of tumor is the mainstay of curative therapy for HCC. However, 5-year postoperative recurrence rate may be up to 70%. We found that epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is closely related to early recurrence of HCC. Late recurrence (>2 years after operation) is related to HBV viral load, inflammatory activity and fibrosis score in the non-tumorous liver tissue. Our serial studies provide holistic view and an integrative strategy for the treatment and prevention of HCC recurrence. We will continue to investigate on this focus.
