Hepatitis A & E: Presentation by Prof. Dr. med. Darius Moradpour
Hepatitis A (Part 1)
“How widespread is hepatitis A?” From transmission, hygiene measures, symptoms to treatment, Prof. Moradpour brings us closer to the liver disease hepatitis A, which is mostly no longer present in Western countries. Nevertheless, vaccination is highly recommended for people in endangered spheres of action also in Switzerland or for travelers to risk areas.
Hepatitis E (Part 2)
“How can you get infected with hepatitis E?” Prof. Moradpour informs what knowledge is fundamentally new about infections with hepatitis E virus in recent years. Types 1 and 2 often occur in countries with low hygiene standards. Today, however, we know that there are two other types of the virus: Type 3 and 4, which can occur in certain animals and in humans.
