Table 1 Correlation of anti-HCV antibody patterns by Western blot analysis and INNO-LIA Score test.

From: Hepatitis C virus core, NS3, NS4B and NS5A are the major immunogenic proteins in humoral immunity in chronic HCV infection

  1. The prevalence of anti-HCV antibodies in the 68 HCV RNA and antibody positive human sera were analysed by Western blot analysis with recombinant HCV proteins and by commercial INNO-LIA Score test.
  2. * The number of serum specimens giving a positive or a negative result with both tests is shown with +/+ or -/-, respectively.
