We present evidence that these observations are only partly explained by differences in nucleotide composition of the complete viral codon regions. We consider the combination of nucleotide composition, amino acid composition, and codon usage preference suitable to provide information on possible evolutionary similarities between distant virus species that cannot be investigated by phylogeny.

Conclusions: A higher seroprevalence of HEV as compared to HAV together with a co-infection rate of 2.07% mandates screening for HEV in all suspected cases of acute hepatitis, particularly pregnant women in whom the outcomes of HEV infection are poor. Health and civic authorities should make necessary efforts to counter epidemic or outbreak situations, thus reducing morbidity, mortality and economic burden.

Authors: Araujo-Mariz C, Militão de Albuquerque MFP, Lopes EP, Ximenes RAA, Lacerda HR, Miranda-Filho DB, Lustosa-Martins BB, Pastor AFP, Acioli-Santos B Abstract INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Hepatotoxicity during tuberculosis (TB) treatment is frequent and may be related to the Arylamine N-Acetyltransferase (NAT2) acetylator profile, in which allele frequencies differ according to the population. The aim of this study was to investigate functional polymorphisms in NAT2 associated with the development of hepatotoxicity after initiating treatment for TB in people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Pernambuco, Nor...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyze changes of hepatitis A antibody levels and immunization coverage of HAV vaccine among children before and after implementing the Expanded National Immunization Program in five counties of China, and to provide evidence for developing hepatitis A vaccine immunization strategies. METHODS: 449 children born in 2001, 2005 and 2009 were selected from five counties for an immunization coverage and a sero-prevalence survey of hepatitis A. The chemiluminescence microparticle immunoassays (CMIA) were used to detect hepatitis A IgG antibody and analyzed the factors which influenced the im...
