Abstract: 

Dear Editor, The association of genetic factors with treatment induced hepatitis C clearance in Pakistani patients was recently demonstrated by Tipu et al. They evaluated the impact of different genetic variants in interferon-l (IFNL) genomic region on treatment induced hepatitis C clearance. The study was remarkable regarding the investigation of several numbers of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in IFNL region. We would like to express our comments regarding the study. We observed that the patients in the study were treated with interferon (IFN) alpha 2b and ribavirin (RBV).
