Abstract

Data about prevalence of hepatitis E virus infection in persons who inject drugs are limited. Among 18-40-year-old persons who inject drugs in California, USA, prevalence of antibodies against hepatitis E virus was 2.7%. This prevalence was associated with age but not with homelessness, incarceration, or high-risk sexual behavior.
