Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection appears to be more common than previously thought. HEV seroprevalence in patients on maintenance haemodialysis (HD) is unclear with a range from 0% to 44%. In addition, risk factors of transmission of HEV in patients on haemodialysis are unknown. 
Prevalence of active hepatitis E virus infection and efficacy of ribavirin treatment in renal allograft recipients
TLDR
The prevalence of HEV infection in renal allograft recipients is evaluated and the efficacy and tolerability of ribavirin monotherapy is investigated. Expand
Seroepidemiology of hepatitis E virus infection in patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis: Systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
The results indicated increased exposure of HD patients with HEV infection over the last decade and concluded that blood transfusion and duration of HD are considerable risk factors for acquiringHEV infection among HD patients. Expand
Seroepidemiology of hepatitis E in patients on haemodialysis in Croatia
Purpose Data on the seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus (HEV) in heamodialysis (HD) patients are conflicting, ranging from 0 to 44%. The aim of this study was to determine the HEV seroprevalence andExpand
Risk factors for sporadic hepatitis E infection: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of this meta-analysis show that symptomatic and infected cases share the most explainable risk factors, and are in agreement with recent studies conducted in Europe, and reveals that some sources such as consumption of insufficiently treated water, shellfish, or vegetables are under-investigated.

Acute liver failure caused by hepatitis E virus genotype 3 and 4: A systematic review and pooled analysis
  • S. Haffar, Shalimar, +4 authors F. Bazerbachi
  • Medicine
  • Liver international : official journal of the International Association for the Study of the Liver
  • 2018
TLDR
It is possible that early recognition and treatment of acute liver failure caused by hepatitis E virus genotype 3 and 4 might reduce the morbidity and mortality in patients with viral acute Liver failure from other causes. Expand
Hepatitis E Virus in Croatia in the “One-Health” Context
TLDR
A narrative review comprehensively addresses the current knowledge on the HEV epidemiology in humans and animals in Croatia to identify the possible changes in the epidemiology of HEV infections. Expand
Clinical presentations of Hepatitis E: A clinical review with representative case histories
TLDR
Current understanding of the HEV is examined, including typical clinical presentations, management strategies and outcomes of HEV infection in different cohorts of patients by highlighting select transplant and non-transplant patient cases, from one of the largest tertiary Hepatology centres in Europe. Expand
Hepatitis E Virus Infection and Butchers: A Case-Control Seroprevalence Study
TLDR
Results from this first age-, gender- and residence-matched serosurvey ofHEV infection in butchers in Mexico suggest that this population group does not have a higher risk for HEV infection than people from the general population. Expand
A systematic review and meta‐analysis of predictors of human hepatitis E virus exposure in non‐endemic countries
TLDR
Working with pigs, in forestry, or in hospitals, was significantly associated with increased odds of HEV seropositivity, as were consumption of meat, pork or game meat, or hunting. Expand
Transmission of Hepatitis E Virus With Plasma Exchange in Kidney Transplant Recipients: A Retrospective Cohort Study
TLDR
Plasma exchange, including with pathogen-reduced plasma, is a risk factor for posttransplantation HEV infection and transaminase elevation and Screening for HEV RNA should be carried out in kidney transplant recipients treated with plasma exchange. Expand

TLDR
Chronic haemodialysis is not associated with an increased risk of exposure to HEV, and the high prevalence of anti-HEV IgG in HD patients reported in uncontrolled studies is possibly due to the confounding effect of age and sex. Expand
