  2. aThe clinical data of the patients treated with anti-HCV or anti-HBV therapy were collected at the start point of the treatment, while data of the other patients were collected on the day when the genomic DNA were collected
  3. bComparisons of serum aminotransferase levels were carried out only between patients with chronic HCV infection and those with chronic HBV infection
