Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is one of the most important causes of viral hepatitis globally. HEV is actually an umbrella term for a large group of variants, many of which can cause human infections. Through multiple transmission routes (food-borne zoonotic, human-to-human, blood-borne), HEV has established niches in various epidemiological settings. The clinical spectrum of hepatitis E ranges from asymptomatic infection to fulminant hepatitis. Extrahepatic manifestations are increasingly recognized, and immunocompromised patients are prone to persistent infections.
We are honoured to act as guest editors for this Special Issue entitled ‘Hepatitis E Virus (HEV)’, which seeks to publish high-quality original research and review articles on unanswered questions in the field of hepatitis E pathogenesis, epidemiology, clinical management, and control. Both clinical research and basic research with translational relevance are welcome.
