Serological and molecular evidence of hepatitis E virus in swine in Brazil



Serological and molecular evidence of hepatitis E virus in swine in Brazil



Veterinary Journal 182(3): 474-480



Active hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections in two Brazilian swine herds were investigated. In study 1, 26 piglets born to five anti-HEV positive sows were monitored from birth to post-partum week 22. Serum samples were screened for the detection of anti-HEV antibodies and a nested RT-PCR used to examine the HEV genome. Passive transfer of immunity was confirmed. At week 22, 23/26 (88.4%) of the piglets had seroconverted.
