Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infects both humans and animals. Swine has been confirmed to be the principal natural reservoir, which raises a concern that HEV infection would be substantially increasing among swine workers. The present study calculated the pooled prevalence of IgG antibodies against HEV...

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) and influenza A virus (IAV) are two important pathogens which can infect humans and various animals causing public health problems. In this study, the seroprevalence and risk factors associated with HEV and IAV infection in farmed wild boars were investigated in China. A...

Abstract

The zoonotic transmission of hepatitis E virus (HEV) is mainly mediated by HEV genotypes 3 and 4, with domestic pigs serving as an important reservoir for both genotypes. In China, genotype 4 HEV is the primary prevalent genotype on pig farms. In this study, the prevalence of HEV infection in pig...

Abstract

Hepatitis E (HE) is an important emerging disease in European countries. To analyse the role of equids as potential reservoirs for HE virus (HEV), we determined the prevalence of HEV infection in 861 equines from 464 herds in Spain. HEV RNA in serum was detected in 0.4% (3/692) of horses, 1.2%...

Abstract

Wild boars are a reservoir for many zoonotic pathogens and a good sentinel for surveillance of zoonotic viral infections, but collection of serum samples from wild boars in the field is sometimes difficult and requires special equipment and techniques. In this study, ELISA using meat juices...

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV), a zoonotic pathogen, is the main cause of acute hepatitis worldwide. Swine serves as the main reservoir, and its infection is mainly transmitted via fecal-oral route. Due to huge consumption of pork in China, close human-swine interactions at pig farms likely contribute to...

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is an important pathogen causing public health burden. Swine has been recognized as a main reservoir. Interestingly, genotype 1 HEV only infects human; whereas genotype 3 and 4 are zoonotic. However, there is a lack of in-depth understanding in respect to the transmission...

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a zoonotic virus that is capable of causing cross-species infection. Rabbits can be experimentally infected with human- and swine-derived HEV-4 in the species Orthohepevirus A, and avian-derived HEV-3 in the species Orthohepevirus B suggesting rabbits can serve as an...

Abstract

Background: A marked increase of hepatitis E cases has recently been observed in the Netherlands. Causes of the (re-)emergence of hepatitis E virus (HEV) and exact sources and routes of transmission of HEV infection are currently unknown. We aimed to identify risk factors for HEV seropositivity....

Abstract

To determine whether hepatitis E virus (HEV) was distributed in the population of wild boars in South Moravia between 1990 and 2008, a total of 366 samples of archived sera from wild boars were investigated using serological (commercial ELISA) and molecular (RT-qPCR) methods. A total of 31 (8.5%)...
