Table 2 Percentages of positive anti-HEV IgG in male and female cases at Siriraj Hospital during 2015–2018

From: Prevalence and clinical correlation of hepatitis E virus antibody in the patients’ serum samples from a tertiary care hospital in Thailand during 2015–2018

Year Positive anti-HEV IgG/Total (%) Chi square test, P-value
Male Female
2015 47/68 (69.12) 44/70 (62.86) 0.602, p = 0.438
2016 55/111 (49.55) 44/91 (48.35) 0.029, p = 0.865
2017 57/131 (43.51) 47/145 (32.41) 3.610, p = 0.057
2018 46/145 (31.72) 29/143 (20.28) 4.896, p = 0.027*
Total 205/455 (45.05) 164/449 (36.53) 6.806, p = 0.009*
  1. Numbers of positive anti-HEV IgG serum samples/total samples in male and female patients were demonstrated in percentages per year (2015–2018). Chi-square test was used to analyze the association between gender and anti-HEV IgG seropositivity. A P-value less than 0.05 is considered statistical significance
