(C;C) 2 ~80% of such hepatitis C patients respond to treatment
(C;T) 2.5 ~20-40% of such hepatitis C patients respond to treatment
(T;T) 3 ~20-25% of such hepatitis C patients respond to treatment

This is considered an unfavorable response genotype for hepatitis C patients considering the use of PEG-interferon-alpha containing therapeutic treatment. This basically means the odds of a successful response are lower than for patients with the rs12979860(C;C) genotype.
