SUMMARY

HAV is a positive RNA virus,a unique member of picornaviridae.Its transmission depend primarily on serial transmission from person to person by the fecal-oral route Although hepatitis A is not ordinarily a sexually transmitted disease, the infection rate is high among male homosexuals, as result of oral-anal contact. The anti-HAV IgG is produced in the early stage of infection, its titer in serum or plasma has been quite high at the onset of serum and reach the peak after 2-3 months.The lgG antibody is a protective antibody and can be maintained for a long time.The emergence of anti-HAV IgG can’t make a HAV diagnosis unless anti-HAV IgM exist at the same time.The presence of specific anti-HAV IgM in blood samples suggests acute or recent HAV infection.The IgM antibody rapidly increases in titer over a period of 4-6 weeks post infection, and then declines to non-detectable levels within 3 to 6 months in most patients.

The HAV IgM Rapid Test Device is to be used to detect IgM anti-HAV in less than 20 minutes by untrained or minimally skilled personnel, without cumbersome laboratory equipment.
