Table 1 Results of the preliminary infectivity study after oral HEV inoculation in pigs.

From: Direct contact and environmental contaminations are responsible for HEV transmission in pigs

Inoculum titer (ge/mL) Number of infected pigs* (Total number of pigs)
  Inoculated (n = 3) Contact (n = 2)
104 0 0
105 0 0
106 2 1
108 3 2
  1. *The number of infected pigs corresponds to the number of pigs with at least one HEV positive fecal sample during the 26-day experiment.
