Table 4 Epitope assessment

From: Immunogenicity of twenty peptides representing epitopes of the hepatitis B core and surface antigens by IFN-γ response in chronic and resolved HBV

  HBsEC-1 HBsEC-4 HBsCP-7 HBsCP-9 HBcEC-11 HBcCP-17
Chronic 2,2 2,4 2,2 2,2 2,8 2
Resolved 1,1 1,2 1,8 1,6 1 0,9
HLA-A2 1,5 1,4 1,6 1,7 1,3 1,3
