Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the causative agent of hepatitis E in humans, an emerging zoonosis mainly transmitted via food in developed countries and for which domestic pigs are recognised as the main reservoir. It therefore appears important to understand the features and drivers of HEV infection...

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is an emergent causative agent of acute hepatitis, transmitted by fecal-oral route. Infection with HEV is a global cause for morbidity and mortality throughout the world: it mainly causes large outbreaks in endemic areas and sporadic autochthonous cases in industrialized...

Abstract

Infection with the hepatitis E virus (HEV) is very common worldwide. HEV causes acute viral hepatitis with approximately 20 million cases per year. While HEV genotypes 1 and 2 cause large waterborne and foodborne outbreaks with a significant mortality in developing countries, genotypes 3 and 4 are...

Abstract

Hepatitis E is an emerging viral disease in developed countries, with sporadic cases occasionally linked to the consumption of raw or undercooked pork, wild boar or deer meat. Cases due to transfusion or transplantation have also been reported. In developed countries, hepatitis E is considered a...

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is an emerging disease with zoonotic transmission that represents a serious public health concern, especially in developing countries. Here we characterize a novel HEV strain CCST-517, which possesses a complete genome sequence of 7284bp with typical HEV genome...

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV), the causative agent of hepatitis E, is an important public health problem throughout the world. There is little information available on the autochthonous HEV infection in highland inhabitants (Tibet, average elevation >3000 m) of China. Therefore, we conducted a...

Abstract

In northwest Poland, 163 blood and 53 fecal samples of wild boars were collected in winter 2012/13 and 2013/14. All blood samples were tested for the presence of hepatitis E virus (HEV) ribonucleic acid (RNA) by two reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) based methods and by...

Abstract

Domestic pigs and Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa) share several important viral and bacterial pathogens. Therefore, direct and indirect contacts between domestic pigs and wild boar present a risk of pathogen spillover and can lead to long-term perpetuation of infection. Biological indicators could...

Abstract

Hepatitis E is caused by hepatitis E virus (HEV), which has been classified into four genotypes. Genotypes 3 and 4 are regarded as zoonotic pathogens. Accumulating research indicate that genotype 4 is the main HEV strain circulating in China, and there are high levels of seropositive pigs and human ...

Abstract

In recent years, viruses have been increasingly recognized as important causes of foodborne diseases. Despite the interest in foodborne viruses, it is still unknown to what extent diseases caused by these viruses can be attributed to spread via contaminated foodstuff. Present study focused on the...
