The receiver operating characteristics (ROC) analysis for the prediction of the sustained virologic response to combination therapy with peginterferon alpha-2b and ribavirin according to the reduction in serum HCV RNA levels in patients with delayed virologic response who underwent an extended 72-week regimen according to response-guided therapy.A) According to the reduction in serum HCV RNA levels 4 weeks after starting therapy. The area under the ROC curve was 0.516. B) According to the reduction in serum HCV RNA levels 12 weeks after starting therapy. The area under the ROC curve was 0.482.
