Abstract

Monolayers of Hep G2/C3A cells were inoculated with genotype 1 (HEV) mixed with either anti-HEV or an appropriate control. After 5 or 6 days, cell monolayers were stained with anti-HEV and infected cells were identified by immunofluorescence microscopy and counted. Anti-HEV from vaccinated or infected rhesus monkeys neutralized the virus, as did mAbs that recognized epitopes on the C terminus of a recombinant vaccine protein. Antibodies were broadly cross-reactive, since convalescent serum from animals infected with any one of the four mammalian genotypes all neutralized the genotype 1 virus.
