Hepatitis A Virus is a cause of acute viral hepatitis in humans, causing about 11,000 deaths worldwide per year. Hepatitis A Virus was long thought to be restricted to primates, with genotypes I to III found in humans and genotypes IV to VI, termed simian Hepatitis A Virus, found in nonhuman primates.
The expanded genus Hepatovirus now includes at least 16 putative virus species. The majority of novel hepatoviruses were obtained from bats and rodents.
Now, scientists have discovered a novel marsupial Hepatitis A Virus in Brazilian common (or big-eared) opossum (Didelphis aurita). That is a potential problem, since opossums are commonly hunted and consumed as wild game by resource-limited (read: poor) Brazilian communities.
Because the family containing marsupial Hepatitis A Virus shares a common ancestor with human Human Hepatitis A Virus, it may hypothetically retain the ability to infect humans.
The results of this research strongly suggest that the species barriers toward Hepatitis A Virus infection seem penetrable.
