Detection of rotavirus in children with acute gastroenteritis in Porto Velho, Rondonia, Brazil

Detection of rotavirus in children with acute gastroenteritis in Porto Velho, Rondonia, Brazil Rotavirus group A (RVA) infection was ascertained in 591 fecal samples from children 0 to 6 years old with acute gastroenteritis. The vaccination status was also verified in all 591 subjects, with 302 (51.0 % ± 4.0 %) participants fully vaccinated against rotavirus. Forty-two of the vaccinated children (13.9 % ± 3.9 %) tested positive for RVA infection. Of the 289 unvaccinated children (49.0 % ± 4.0 %), 61 (21.1 % ± 4.7 %) had stools positive for RVA. This study suggests that the proportion of acute diarrhea cases caused by rotavirus was low and that the incidence of rotavirus diarrhea decreased over the study period in both vaccinated and unvaccinated children. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Rotavirus group A (RVA) infection was ascertained in 591 fecal samples from children 0 to 6 years old with acute gastroenteritis. The vaccination status was also verified in all 591 subjects, with 302 (51.0 % ± 4.0 %) participants fully vaccinated against rotavirus. Forty-two of the vaccinated children (13.9 % ± 3.9 %) tested positive for RVA infection. Of the 289 unvaccinated children (49.0 % ± 4.0 %), 61 (21.1 % ± 4.7 %) had stools positive for RVA. This study suggests that the proportion of acute diarrhea cases caused by rotavirus was low and that the incidence of rotavirus diarrhea decreased over the study period in both vaccinated and unvaccinated children.
