Prevalence of and risk factors for antibody to hepatitis E virus seroreactivity among blood donors in Northern California.

Abstract

To evaluate antibody to hepatitis E virus (anti-HEV) seroreactivity, 5000 US blood donors were tested for anti-HEV by two EIAs: a mosaic protein assay (MPr-EIA) and a recombinant protein assay (RPr-EIA). Overall, 59 (1.2%) were seroreactive by MPr-EIA and 70 (1.4%) were seroreactive by RPr-EIA. The overall concordance between tests was 98.5% (4925/5000… (More)
