Abstract

Among 312 rotavirus-positive samples collected from eight hospitals across South Korea during 2008 and 2009, the most prevalent circulating G genotype was G1 (35.9%), followed by G3 (24.7%), G2 (17.0%), G4 (7.7%), and G9 (2.6%). Notably, one unusual G11 lineage III strain—the first hypoendemic infection case in the world—was found. Of the P genotypes, P(8) (43.9%) was the most common, followed by P(6) (29.5%), P(4) (9.3%) and P(9) (0.6%). Determining G- and P-type combinations showed that G1P(8) was the most prevalent (20.5%), followed by G2P(6) (12.8%) and G3P(8) (12.8%). These findings provide new information concerning the current prevalence and spread of the rare G11 rotavirus.
