  • a The dominant model genotypic test was used to assess the association of a TLR3 polymorphism with the clearance of HCV. The P values were calculated by means of a 2-by-2 contingency table and chi-square tests. Dd, one major allele and one minor allele; dd, two minor alleles; DD, two major alleles.
