Rabbit HEV strains were isolated in China from farmed rabbits, which may be a reservoir of a novel genotype of HEV. However, there is little information regarding host range and zoonotic potential of rabbit HEV. A previous study from this group identified 25 specific nucleotide positions as possibly being involved in specifying the host range of HEV and/or in determining the severity of hepatitis E disease, whereas this previous analysis did not extend to the new rabbit HEVs. Consequently the… CONTINUE READING
