Hépacivirus, pégivirus, TDAV : une nouvelle triade de virus hépatiques chez le cheval ?

Abstract : This article summarizes the current state of knowledge regarding the recent discovery of three new viruses potentially involved in Equine hepatitis. Identification of an Equine Hepacivirus in 2013 resulted from serendipity; since then, this virus has been identified in horses on all continents. In a recent French study, the prevalence was 6,2 % (64 positive horses out of 1033). Equine Pegiviruses were more recently discovered and remain an enigma. Theiler’s disease associated virus (TDAV) is strongly suspected to be the cause of Theiler’s disease. The three viruses can infect horses via injections of biological products.
