From: Circulating viral core and E1 antigen levels as supplemental markers for HCV Chronic hepatitis

Figure 1

Scattered plot of the OD values corresponding to circulating core and envelop HCV antigens in precipitated immune complexes from viremic patients in comparison to controls. The cut off values for viral antigens were calculated as the mean OD readings obtained from ICs of controls plus 2 × standard deviations and was 0.4. The mean OD readings of viral core and envelop proteins were significantly higher in viremic patients than controls and the P-values for both antigens were (<0.0001) and (<0.0003) respectively.
