Adicionalmente, los autores demuestran la relacion entre la respuesta inflamatoria y la oncogenesis en este modelo, dado que el miRNA-155 es regulado positivamente por la respuesta inflamatoria consecuencia de la infeccion por VHC y esto conlleva a la activacion de la via Wnt lo que promueve la hepato-oncogenesis (75).
