  1. Normal ALT levels were found in all patients except patient C18 and C19 where ALT levels were elevated to 59 and 66 IU/mL (normal range for females is 10–45 IU/mL). No patients were double positive or double negative for HBeAg/anti-HBeAg. Median HBV DNA in the HBeAg positive patients were 81,000 IU/mL (2 – 400.000 IU/mL) and 0.019 IU (0 – 5500 IU/mL) in the HBV negative patients, no statistics were made on HBV genotype since quantification was not possible in 12 of the 30 patients. N/A: not available; F: female; M: male; Pos: positive; Neg: negative
