Table 3 Correlation between TLR mRNA expression levels and baseline clinical factors (N = 79)

From: Peripheral blood toll-like receptor 4 correlates with rapid virological response to pegylated-interferon and ribavirin therapy in hepatitis C genotype 1 patients

  TLR2 TLR3 TLR4 TLR7 TLR9
  R value P value R value P value R value P value R value P value R value P value
HCV RNA 0.292 0.009 0.277 0.013 0.386 < 0.0001 0.301 0.007 0.354 0.001
ALT −0.126 0.269 0.046 0.688 −0.009 0.934 0.097 0.393 −0.05 0.663
Cirrhosis −0.124 0.278 0.087 0.447 −0.024 0.832 0.014 0.901 −0.901 0.425
  1. Spearman correlation. HCV RNA (log IU), ALT alanine aminotransferase (U/dl). Cirrhosis:yes vs. no. TLR mRNA expression levels were shown as log ratios relative to GAPDH mRNA (log 2 -(∆Ct))
