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.
