Data shown for carriers of hepatitis B surface antigen who were persistently HBeAg positive throughout follow-up (solid line); those who seroconverted from HBeAg positivity to anti-HBe positivity (dashed line); those who seroconverted from HBeAg to anti-HBe, then had reactivation of HBeAg (dotted line); and those who were initially anti-HBe negative, then had reactivation and tested HBeAg positive (smaller dashed line). Those who were persistently HBeAg negative and anti-HBe positive (group D in Table 1) are not shown.
Line patterns represent carriers who seroconverted from HBeAg to anti-HBe; those who seroconverted from HBeAg to anti-HBe, then had reactivation of HBeAg; those who were persistently HBeAg negative and anti-HBe positive; and those who were initially anti-HBe positive, then had reactivation of HBeAg.
The center solid line represents participants 20 years of age or older; the center dotted line represent participants younger than 20 years of age. The lines on either side of the center lines are 95% CIs, which are largely nonoverlapping.
