“…A larger sample is possibly needed to identify statistical difference. Our results may be justified by the predominant circulation of HEV genotype 3 in Brazil 8,9 . However, besides the poor local sanitary and hygiene conditions, the epidemiological criteria to zoonotic HEV infection were not fully attended to.…”

“…Besides, very little is known about the seroepidemiology of HEV infection in rural residents in Brazil 3,7 , with just one study conducted on agricultural settlers in the Amazon Region 4 . Until recently, only HEV genotype 3 (zoonotic) has been reported in Brazil 8,9 . This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of HEV infection and associated factors in rural settlers in Central Brazil.…”
