The size of each square denotes the proportion of information provided by each trial. Pooled odds ratios were calculated from random-effects models with the DerSimonian-Laird method. (a) The number of patients with the favorable genotype (CC) who achieved SVR with respect to the total number of patients having the favorable genotype. (b) The number of patients with the unfavorable genotype (CT+TT) who achieved SVR with respect to the total number of patients having the unfavorable genotype.
