The Hepatitis A virus (HAV) has been classified in seven different genotypes, which include human (I, II, III, and VII) and simian (IV, V, and VI) groups. The sequence analysis of HAV strains contributes to the molecular epidemiology of the virus. Although the infection with HAV is endemic in Argentina and vaccination is being implemented in this country, using both IA and IB strains, there are very few data on the genotypes of the circulating viruses. On the basis of the sequences of 20… CONTINUE READING
