HEPATITIS E VIRUS DETECTION, PCR

Acute infections primarily affect adults, 15 to 40 years of age and are generally mild but the mortality rate is particularly high (10 – 40%) among pregnant women. Chronic HEV infections have been reported in immune suppressed people. This test is useful for the detection of HEV in plasma or serum samples.
