Figure 3: Correlation between qHBsAg and HBV-DNA in (a) chronic hepatitis B patients (rho = 0.533, P< 0.001); (b) HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B patients (rho = 0.513, P= 0.001); (c) HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B patients (rho = 0.087, P= 0.500); and (d) inactive HBV carriers (rho = −0.046, P= 0.643). Spearman correlation method (nonparametric method for correlation) was used to find correlation coefficient because of skewed-distributed values
