The importance of the domestic pig reservoir for Hepatitis E virus (HEV) was assessed by estimating the seroprevalence and prevalence of HEV contaminated livers in French slaughter-aged pigs. 6565 sera and 3715 livers were randomly sampled from 186 pig farms throughout the country. Taking the sampling design into account, the farm-level seroprevalence was 65% (95% CI 57-74) and 31% (95% CI 24-38) of the slaughter-aged pigs had antibodies against HEV. The individual prevalence of HEV RNA… CONTINUE READING
