Summary of "Unexpected high seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus in patients with alcohol-related cirrhosis."

Little is known about hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection in patients with cirrhosis. The aim of the present study was to describe the frequency of HEV infection and associated risk factors in patients with cirrhosis from Argentina.

Higher seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus in autoimmune hepatitis: Role of false positive antibodies.

Recent studies have found an increase in the seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection in patients with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). We aimed to assess the prevalence of positive anti-HEV IgM...

Low seroprevalence and zero incidence rate of hepatitis E in men who have sex with men during a hepatitis A outbreak.

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) and Hepatitis A virus (HAV) are both secreted in faeces. Despite HEV transmission in Europe is mainly zoonotic, person-to-person transmission has not been completely excluded. ...

Hepatitis A virus seroprevalence in South Africa - Estimates using routine laboratory data, 2005-2015.

South Africa is considered highly endemic for hepatitis A virus (HAV) although few seroprevalence studies have been conducted over the past two decades. The World Health Organization recommends integr...

Detection and characterization of hepatitis E virus genotype-3 in HIV-infected patients and blood donors from Southern Brazil.

Hepatitis E virus genotype 3 (HEV-3) infection usually causes self-limited acute hepatitis. In immunosuppressed patients, HEV-3 infection can rapidly progress to chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis. In So...

Prevalence of hepatitis E virus and reassessment of HIV and other hepatitis virus seroprevalences among French prison inmates.

Prison inmates are considered a high-risk population for blood-borne and enterically transmitted infections before and during their imprisonment. Hepatitis E virus (HEV) prevalence is unknown among Fr...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.

A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).

A species in the genus HEPATOVIRUS containing one serotype and two strains: HUMAN HEPATITIS A VIRUS and Simian hepatitis A virus causing hepatitis in humans (HEPATITIS A) and primates, respectively.

A defective virus, containing particles of RNA nucleoprotein in virion-like form, present in patients with acute hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis. It requires the presence of a hepadnavirus for full replication. This is the lone species in the genus Deltavirus.

A strain of HEPATITIS A VIRUS which causes hepatitis in humans. The virus replicates in hepatocytes and is presumed to reach the intestine via the bile duct. Transmission occurs by the fecal-oral route.
