Technical Data
Hepatitis A Virus, HM175 (HAV)
Hepatitis A is a wide-spread infectious disease, resulting from infection of the liver by the Hepatitis A virus (HAV). Hepatitis A infection causes jaundice, fever, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, headache and fatigue. Some cases may be fatal. The virus is mainly transmitted by the faecal-oral route via contaminated food or drinking water. The HAV is a picornavirus that replicates slowly without noticeable interference to host cell macro-molecular synthesis and, consequently, without apparent cytopathic effect. The liver pathology observed is likely to be immune-mediated.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
