  1. Hepatitis E.

    Article - En anglais

    Hepatitis E (HEV) is a faeco-orally transmitted hepatitis virus.

    It has many features similar to hepatitis A but some differences, notably the high mortality caused by HEV in pregnant women.

    A vaccine is being developed but at the moment only a clean water supply will reduce the number of cases in areas where the virus is endemic.
