<p>*-308 A/A and -238 A/A were rare genotypes. Therefore, some studies had to be excluded because they contained no individuals carrying these genotypes. In the study on -308 AA <i>vs</i>. GA +GG, the report by Kummee <i>et al</i><a href="" target="_blank">[20]</a> was excluded; in -238 GG <i>vs</i>. AA and -238 AA <i>vs</i>. GA +GG, Cheong <i>et al</i><a href="" target="_blank">[10]</a> and Li <i>et al</i><a href="" target="_blank">[17]</a> were excluded.</p><p>Abbreviations: CHB, chronic HBV infection; HC, HBV clearance; OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval; df, degree of freedom.</p
