NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Hepatitis E Diagnostic Tests Market: Overview
Hepatitis E is a liver disease that is enterically transmitted and is caused by hepatitis E virus (HEV). It is one of the five known human hepatitis viruses (A, B, C, D, and E). Hepatitis E spreads through fecal-oral transmission due to fecal contamination of drinking water. The other routes of transmission of hepatitis E virus include transfusion of infected blood products, vertical transmission from a pregnant woman to her fetus, and ingestion of undercooked meat or meat products derived from infected animals. Infections with hepatitis E virus are commonly observed in regions with poor sanitation, including the Middle East, Asia, Central America, and Africa. The epidemiology and serology of HEV differs in developing and developed countries. It is considered to be rare in the U.S. and other developed regions.
Cases of hepatitis E are not clearly distinguishable from other types of viral hepatitis. Hence, diagnosis can be confirmed by testing the presence of RNA and antibodies against HEV. Testing for the presence of IgM and IgG is considered to be indirect tests and testing for the presence of HEV RNA is considered to be direct test. Presence of IgM is the primary test to identify acute infections in patients, which is confirmed by testing for the presence of RNA. Presence of IgG antibodies indicates that the patient has been exposed previously to hepatitis E virus.
This research is a combination of primary and secondary research, conducted for understanding and arriving at trends, used to forecast the expected revenue of hepatitis E diagnostic kits in the near future. Primary research formed the bulk of our research efforts with information collected from in-depth interviews and discussions with a number of key industry experts and opinion leaders. Secondary research involved study of company websites, annual reports, press releases, investor presentations, analyst presentation and various international and national databases.
