  1. *HBV DNA in serum was detected by FQ-PCR, the results were expressed as values of IU/ml (positive), “-” (values < 0.5 × 102 IU/ml) or “±” (values between 0.5 × 102-1.0 × 103 IU/ml). Serum HBsAg, HBsAb, HBeAg, HBeAb and HBcAb were detected by ELISA, the results were expressed as “+” (positive), “-” (negative) or “±” (between positive and negative).
  2. **“~150” means around 150 weeks. “~250” means around 250 weeks, the last time of detection.
  3. #Not tested at this time point.
