Table S5, Egger test result bias for rs12979860 and rs8099917 for sustained virologic response (SVR). No., number of studies; Coef., asymmetry regression coefficient; Std. Err., standard error; t, statistic; P > |t|, significance; and 95% CI, confidence interval. Coef. corresponds to the intercept value in the regression equation, which estimates the asymmetry of the funnel plot. Positive values (Coef. > 0) indicate higher levels of effect size in studies with smaller sample sizes.
