Liver failure may occur in patients with underlying chronic liver disease. Children shed viruses longer than the adults. It is difficult to trace the food source because of long incubation period of the disease. HAV is active for 1 month in the environment and it is resistant to chlorine and requires 1 min exposure to 1:100 dilutions of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite). Inactivation by heating requires > 85 °C for 1 min. Immunization has been effective strategy in reducing the hepatitis cases especially in children.

Two to three weeks after infection, immune response to virus develops. Consequently, activated immune cells attack virus infected hepatocytes to eliminate the virally infected cells. As a result, hepatocytes are severely damaged manifesting characteristic viral pathogenesis. The major symptom of hepatitis is jaundice manifested by yellow discoloration of skin and the white part of the eye. In jaundice patient, the feces are pale colored and the urine becomes dark. Anorexia, vomiting, malaise, and fever are manifested in the hepatitis patients and virus particles are shed in large numbers in feces (109 particles per gram).

Young, old, pregnant, and immunocompromised (YOPI) people are susceptible to various foodborne diseases. Also, cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, people with organ transplants, and AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) patients are vulnerable to foodborne illnesses. Pathogen-free food may lead to increased susceptibility to diseases because subclinical infection may strengthen immunity. “Delhi-belly,” “Montezuma’s revenge,” or “Travelers Diarrhea” affects only travelers and not the indigenous populations.
