  1. HCV genotypes were determined by INNO-LiPA. HCV RNA was quantified with the Roche COBAS Monitor assay, and is expressed as log10 IU/mL. QS heterogeneity was assessed using the clonal frequency analysis (CFA) technique. Diversity scores represent the average heteroduplex mobility ratios (HMR) for either Taq or HF-2 enzymes. Complexity scores represent the total number of distinct gel shift variants analyzed by CFA. W00 represents the week 0 or baseline sample. AVG represents average.
