Abstract

Human astroviruses (HAstVs) are important enteric pathogens that are genetically and antigenically heterogeneous and can be classified into eight sero/genotypes (HAstV-1 to -8) and different lineages within each HAstV type. This study describes the genetic diversity of HAstVs circulating in southern Italy over 14 years. Molecular analysis of HAstV-1 strains showed that three different lineages (1a, 1b and 1d) of the predominant genotype were circulating during the study period. The study of an archival collection of HAstV strains offers a unique opportunity to evaluate the patterns of variation of HAstV infections over the years and to correlate the observed epidemiological changes to the genetic variability of HAstVs.
