Abstract

Hepatitis A virus disease is a common infection in most parts of the world and even in the highly industrialized countries the disease continues to be a significant problem. The World Health Organization continue to rank HAV infection as prevalent worldwide especially in countries with poor standards of sanitation and hygiene (Gust, 1988; Lau et al., 1991; Kurstak et al., 1992).
