Abstract


Several animal species including pigs are directly involved in the zoonotic transmission of the hepatitis E virus (HEV) to humans. This study was conducted to detect HEV in bovine and porcine raw livers by nested reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Zoonotic HEV strains were identified in 1.0 and 3.0% of the tested bovine and porcine livers, respectively. HEV-4 was detected in the bovine livers, but both HEV-3 and HEV-4 were identified in the porcine livers. These results indicate that zoonotic transmission of HEV may occur via consumption of raw or undercooked livers of pigs and cattle.
