Hepatitis A virus, HM175/18f was isolated from the feces of a patient with acute viral hepatitis during an outbreak of hepatitis A in a semirural area on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia during October/November of 1976. The sample was collected one week after the onset of symptoms and the virus was initially passaged through marmosets, isolated from marmoset liver on primary African green monkey kidney (BS-C-1) cells and subsequently passaged and plaque-purified in BS-C-1 cells. Strain HM175/18f demonstrates a rapid replication/cytopathic effect (RR/CPE+) phenotype in BS-C-1 cells but retains the antigenic characteristics of low culture passage hepatitis A virus.

The complete genome of hepatitis A virus, HM175/18f has been sequenced (GenBank: KP879216).

Each vial contains approximately 1 mL of cell lysate and supernatant from Macaca mulatta fetal kidney cells (FRhK-4) infected with hepatitis A virus, HM175/18f.
