Table 4 HBV RNA levels in virological responders and non virological responders

From: Serum hepatitis B virus RNA levels as a predictor of HBeAg seroconversion during treatment with peginterferon alfa-2a

Variables VR Non-VR P value
Number 42 19
Baseline HBV RNA (log10 copies/mL) 4.81 ± 1.39 6.20 ± 0.80 0.013
Week 12 HBV RNA (log10 copies/mL) 3.35 ± 0.80 4.93 ± 0.86 < 0.001
Week 24 HBV RNA (log10 copies/mL) 3.04 ± 0.67 4.49 ± 1.04 < 0.001
Week 36 HBV RNA (log10 copies/mL) 2.79 ± 0.21 3.65 ± 0.75 < 0.001
Week 48 HBV RNA (log10 copies/mL) 2.84 ± 0.40 3.15 ± 0.47 0.011
  1. HBV RNA hepatitis B ribonucleic acid, VR patients who achieved sustain virological response, non-VR, patients who didn’t achieve sustain virological response
  2. Data were expressed as mean values± standard deviation
