Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is endemic in much of the developing world. Infections in humans can resulte of acute hepatitis and especially in pregnant women the infection may cause serious complications. The most important route of transmission is faecal-orally, and HEV disease outbreaks are often associated with contaminated drinking water or poor hygienic conditions.
