Hepatitis C and hepatitis E: prevention, prophylaxis and treatment

  • Edouard Kurstak
Chapter

Abstract

Control measures for enterically transmitted hepatitis E virus infection (ET-NANBH) would essentially be similar to those of hepatitis A virus (HAV) and presumably include the requisite of clean water, sanitary disposal of human excreta and an improvement in personal as well as food hygiene. It has been reported that passive immunization with immunoglobulin prepared from healthy donors originating in countries infected by the disease may protect vulnerable groups — particularly pregnant women.
