dc.description.abstractThe seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus infection [‎HEV]‎ in children and young adults was determined in a community-based survey in an area of northern Islamic Republic of Iran. Serum samples were taken from 1080 randomly selected apparently healthy 2-25-year-olds from urban and rural regions of Sari district. Anti-HEV IgG antibodies were detected in 25 individuals [‎2.3%]‎. Seroprevalence increased significantly with age from 3/255 [‎1.2%]‎ in children < 10 years to 8/110 [‎7.3%]‎ in those aged 20-25 years. No differences in HEV status were noted between the sexes. Earlier age at exposure to infection and a higher infection rate were found in people residing in rural areas than in urban areasEN
