Depuration of Mytilus galloprovincialis experimentally contaminated with hepatitis A virus.


Mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) were contaminated with known amounts of laboratory strains of hepatitis A virus and Poliovirus 1 and the effectiveness of a self-cleansing mechanism was studied using a pilot depuration system. Both viruses were rapidly bioaccumulated by mussels and the maximal concentration of about 10(4) TCID50/ml was reached within 1.5… (More)
