About the product

Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is a kind of RNA virus, which belongs to the family of Picornavirus. Hepatitis A disease is a kind of intestinal infectious disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV) with a worldwide distribution. Children and adolescents are most likely to be infected. Hepatitis A is the most common type of acute viral hepatitis, mainly spread by the fecal-oral route. The incubation period of the hepatitis A virus is 15 to 45 days, HAV-IgM antibodies can be detected in serum a short time later after being infected, continue to rise very rapidly, peaking in about 2 weeks, decreasing gradually, disappear in 8 weeks.
