What is Hepatitis A?

Hepatitis A (HAV), or infectious hepatitis, is an acute disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus. It is mostly spread by food or drink contaminated with faeces. People infected have often travelled to parts of the world where hygiene is poor. In many cases, there is no illness or a flu-like illness with mild jaundice and does not progress to chronic hepatitis. Unlike hepatitis B and hepatitis C, HAV does not cause chronic (ongoing, long-term) disease. Although the liver does become inflamed and swollen, it heals completely in most people without any long-term damage. Once you have had HAV, you develop lifelong immunity and cannot get the disease again.

What can I test?

Hepatitis A IgM

Hepatitis A is an acute, short-term disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). Hepatitis A is commonly transmitted by through food or water which has been contaminated by faeces from someone who is already infected by the virus. This type of hepatitis is most common in countries where the sanitation is poor. IgM antibodies are involved in the very early stages of an immune response and first to be made by the body when fighting a new infection, providing short-term protection. A positive IgM result indicates a recent HAV infection. IgG provides antibody-based immunity.

Hepatitis A IgG

Hepatitis A is an acute, short-term disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). Hepatitis A is commonly transmitted by through food or water which has been contaminated by faeces from someone who is already infected by the virus. This type of hepatitis is most common in countries where the sanitation is poor. IgG antibodies form the basis of long-term protection against microorganisms and in those with a healthy immune system, sufficient IgG antibodies are produced to prevent re-infection. A positive IgG indicates a past HAV infection & immunity to the virus.
