Table 4 Percentages of positive anti-HEV IgM in male and female cases in 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 IgM/Total (%) Chi square test, P-value
Male Female
2015 23/85 (27.06) 15/80 (18.75) 1.605, p = 0.205
2016 13/123 (10.57) 14/107 (13.08) 0.349, p = 0.554
2017 17/160 (10.63) 17/171 (9.94) 0.042, p = 0.838
2018 17/172 (9.88) 11/183 (6.01) 1.830, p = 0.176
Total 70/540 (12.96) 57/541 (10.54) 1.535, p = 0.215
  1. Numbers of positive anti-HEV IgM 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 IgM seropositivity. A P-value less than 0.05 is considered statistical significance
