Figure 4

Correlation between levels of both HCV core (A) and envelop (B) antigens with viral copy number quantitation results obtained by branched DNA assay. The results reflected the presence of negative correlation for OD values of both antigens when compared to the branched DNA viral copy number values and the correlation coefficients were (r = -0.36 (A), -0.39 (B)) for both core-branched DNA and envelop-branched DNA. These values were not extremely significant in case of core-branched DNA (P < 0.06) but was clearly significant for envelop-branched DNA (P < 0.05).
