Hepatitis E Virus, IgM BioAssay ELISA Kit (HEV)

£718.00 96 Tests

Hepatitis resulting from infection with viruses other than Hepatitis A Virus (HAV) and Hepatitis B (HBV) virus was previously referred to as non-A, non-B hepatitis. The first characterized non-A, non-B hepatitis agent was that responsible for parentally transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis, or what is now called Hepatitis C Virus. This was followed by the cloning of a portion of the fecal-orally-transmitted agent, the Hepatitis E Virus (HEV).
Hepatitis E Virus has been referred to as enterically transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis. Epidemics of enterically transmitted Hepatitis E Virus have been recognized worldwide but occur principally in developing countries. They have been reported in Southeast Asia, central Asia, Africa, Mexico, and Central America. In these areas, contaminated water has been implicated as the principal vehicle of virus transmission. Although HEV and HAV are transmitted in a similar manner, there are major differences in the clinical, pathological, and epidemiological courses of these two viruses. In particular, the mortality rate for HEV infection is 1 to 2%, or approximately 10-fold greater than that seen for HAV. Infection with HEV is particularly fatal for pregnant women, for whom the mortality rate can be as high as 10 to 20%.
