Identification of genotype 1 hepatitis E virus in samples from swine in Cambodia

J Clin Microbiol. 2006 Sep;44(9):3440-2. doi: 10.1128/JCM.00939-06.

Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a major enterically transmitted pathogen in many developing countries, where it causes outbreaks and sporadic cases of acute hepatitis. A study conducted with pigs from several livestock farms in Cambodia identified one swine genotype 1 HEV isolate as being associated with prevalent swine genotype 3 HEV.
