Table 1 Comparison between HCV RNA PCR results in the studied patients

From: Study of hepatitis B virus infection, reactivation among patients with chronic hepatitis C infection treated by direct antiviral agents (DAAs)

N = 200 At the start of treatment After 1 month of treatment At the end of treatment P-value
HCV RNA PCR Negative 0 0% 190 95% 196 98% P1 < 0.001 HS
P2 = 0.04 S
P3 < 0.001 HS
Positive 200 100% 10 5% 4 2%
  1. X2: chi-square test
  2. S: p-value < 0.05 is considered significant
  3. HS: p-value < 0.001 is considered highly significant
  4. P1: refers to the statistical difference between the start of DAA and 1 month after DAA
  5. P2: refers to the statistical difference between the start of DAA and at the end of DAA
  6. P3: refers to the statistical difference between 1 month after DAA and at the end of DAA
