rs12979860 is a SNP near the IL28B gene, encoding interferon-lambda-3 (IFN-lambda-3).
Several studies now indicate that this SNP predicts hepatitis C treatment-induced viral clearance. It is associated with an approximately twofold change in response to pegylated interferon-alpha (PEG-IFN-alpha) plus ribavirin (RBV) treatment, both among patients of European ancestry (p = 1.06 x 10e-25) and African-Americans (p = 2.06 x 10e-3). These studies indicate that the virus was eradicated in ~80% of (C;C) patients, compared to only about 25% of those with (T;T), while (C;T) response was intermediate.[PMID 19684573, PMID 19749758, PMID 19749757]
