Association between changes in histopathological score [a ΔSteatosis, b ΔBallooning, c ΔLobular inflammation, and d ΔStage] with logarithmically transformed serum miR-122 ratio. Changes in histopathological scores (Δ) represented the value at second liver biopsy minus value at first liver biopsy. Serum miR-122 ratio was calculated by (ratio at serum miR-122 level at second liver biopsy/ratio at serum miR-122 level at first liver biopsy). Note the strong associations (r ≥ 0.5) between serum miR-122 ratio and changes in histopathological scores [a ΔSteatosis, c ΔLobular inflammation, and d ΔStage]
