Diversity of human rotaviruses detected in Sicily, Italy, over a 5-year period (2001–2005)

Diversity of human rotaviruses detected in Sicily, Italy, over a 5-year period (2001–2005) Rotavirus infection was detected in 39.9% of 1030 children hospitalized with gastroenteritis in Palermo, Italy, in the period 2001–2005. Rotavirus strains belonging to G1, G4 and G9 types were continually detected, with G1 being the most common type in 2001, 2002 and 2004. A G4 epidemic occurred in 2003, while G9 was predominant in 2005. G2 strains displayed a low prevalence, except in 2003. G3 rotaviruses accounted for 2.7–17% of the gastroenteritis episodes in 2002–2005. The P-type of a subset of 166 strains confirmed the circulation of the usual G/P combinations, but single G1P(6), G9P(9) and G6P(9) strains were also found. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Rotavirus infection was detected in 39.9% of 1030 children hospitalized with gastroenteritis in Palermo, Italy, in the period 2001–2005. Rotavirus strains belonging to G1, G4 and G9 types were continually detected, with G1 being the most common type in 2001, 2002 and 2004. A G4 epidemic occurred in 2003, while G9 was predominant in 2005. G2 strains displayed a low prevalence, except in 2003. G3 rotaviruses accounted for 2.7–17% of the gastroenteritis episodes in 2002–2005. The P-type of a subset of 166 strains confirmed the circulation of the usual G/P combinations, but single G1P(6), G9P(9) and G6P(9) strains were also found.
