Summary of "Seroprevalence and risk assessment of viral hepatitis E infection in a group of exposed persons from Republic of Moldova."

Viral hepatitis E is considered to be an important issue for public health in developing countries. The aim of the present study is to evaluate morbidity and risk factors in occupationally exposed groups such as people working on sausage production.

Hepatitis E seroprevalence and associated risk factors in Croatian liver transplant recipients.

Solid-organ transplant recipients are at risk of hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection. We analyzed the seroprevalence/risk factors of HEV in Croatian liver transplant recipients.

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 C virus (HCV) infection is the most prevalent blood-borne infection and causes more deaths than any other infectious disease in the US. Incident HCV infection in the US increased nearly 300 ...

Risk factors associated with horizontal transmission of hepatitis B viral infection from parents to children in Mexico.

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in children is a health problem worldwide. In Mexico, a high prevalence rate of HBV infection and occult HBV infection have been reported in high-risk adults and chil...

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 ...

Do Low High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) Levels Predict Treatment Outcome in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C Viral Infection?

The working hypothesis is that the low HDL serum level predict favorable response to anti viral treatment in chronic HCV (genotype 1) viral infection. This might be used to improve the rat...

Study to Assess the Seroprevalence of Anti-Tat Antibodies in HIV-infected Patients

Tat is a key HIV regulatory protein produced very early after infection, prior to virus integration, and necessary for viral gene expression, cell-to-cell virus transmission and disease pr...

HEV in Patients With Acute Non-A, Non-B, Non-C Hepatitis in Al-Rajhy University Hospital for Liver

Hepatitis E is the fifth known human viral hepatitis and is probably the most common cause of acute viral hepatitis in the world. The incidence of acute hepatitis E is estimated at 3 milli...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).

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.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in animals due to viral infection.

Any vaccine raised against any virus or viral derivative that causes hepatitis.

Immunoglobulins raised by any form of viral hepatitis; some of these antibodies are used to diagnose the specific kind of hepatitis.
