The C polymorphism in rs12979860 is strongly associated with a two-fold greater sustained virological response in European, African American, and Hispanic populations. Knowledge of host genotype patients infected with HCV will aid in the clinical decision to initiate treatment with PegIFN and RBV (a 48 week course of interferon and ribavirin which has limited efficacy and is often poorly tolerated due to side effects that prevent patients from finishing treatment).

Use only Celera/Copan DNA collection kit (Celera part # is
5002737) or DNA Genotek OraCollect kit (OC-100). Follow
collection kit instructions.

Do not eat immediately prior to sample collection. If patient
has eaten recently, rinse mouth with plain water.

Rejection Criteria: Incorrect collection device; Liquid has
leaked from container/no liquid present
