The main impact of the hepatitis A virus (HAV) lies in the morbidity it causes. Symptoms in adults, including fatigue, malaise, nausea, anorexia, and pruritus, frequently last 3 to 4 weeks. Some control of HAV infection has been achieved through water sanitation and administration of immunoglobulin G. The potential for eliminating HAV, however, lies in continued development of effective vaccines.
