Table 1 Average changes of HBpreSAg and HBV DNA after IFN treatment and comparisons of different HBV markers.

From: Serum levels of preS antigen (HBpreSAg) in chronic hepatitis B virus infected patients

  DNAa (0 wk) DNAa (0/24 wk) DNAa (0/48 wk) HBpreSAg (0 wk) HBpreSAg (0/24 wk) HBpreSAg (0/48 wk) ALT (0 wk)
Average (type I) 8.3 1.9 3.7 0.7 1.7 2.2 379
Average (type II) 8.1 2.8 -0.4 0.9 3.3 1.9 327
Average (type III) 8.5 0.2 0.5 0.8 1.2 1.5 423
  1. (0/24 wk) and (0/48 wk) present the reduction of HBV DNA (logs) or HBpreSAg (folds) at 24 week and 48 week respectively compared to that of the beginning point. aHBV DNA copies were presented in logarithm.
