2004), the possible use of indirect control strategies to prevent the virus from spreading within herds, and eventually to minimize risks for human health should not be overlooked in the future. Backer et al. (2012) evaluated the fraction of HEV RNA positivity at slaughter age in swine, and explored the effects of vaccination in this regards. When vaccination reduced the mean infectious period, the infectious fraction decreased. 2 Disease Associated with HEV Infection The possible interaction between HEV and other pig pathogens has also to be fully clarified.

2009), and in 5 % of red deer (Cervus elaphus) in the Netherlands (Rutjes et al. 2010). The full-length genomic sequence of a strain of HEV was determined from a Sika deer in Japan, and sequence analysis revealed that the deer HEV belonged to genotype 3 (Takahashi et al. 2004). Genotype 3 strains of HEV were also genetically identified from roe deer (Capreolus rufus and Capreolus capreolus) in Hungary (Reuter et al. 2009; Forgach et al. 2010). Zoonotic transmission of HEV from deer to humans via the consumption of contaminated deer meat has been reported (Tei et al.

2010b). By using a nested broadspectrum RT-PCR, two authentic HEV sequences from fecal samples of wild Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus) from Hamburg, Germany (Johne et al. 2010b) have been amplified. Since then, rat HEV strains have been isolated from wild rats in other areas of Germany, and have been detected in wild rats also in the USA and Vietnam (Purcell et al. 2011; Li et al. 2013). The HEV strains characterized from rats shared only approximately 60 and 50 % of sequence identity with human HEV and avian HEV strains, respectively.
