Isolation and Molecular Characterization of Aichi Viruses from Fecal Specimens Collected in Japan, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam
Aichi virus is a new member of the family Picornaviridae, genus Kobuvirus, and is associated with human gastroenteritis and was detected in 28 of 912 fecal specimens collected in Japan, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam during 2002 to 2005. Expand
Human astrovirus, norovirus (GI, GII), and sapovirus infections in Pakistani children with diarrhea
Fecal specimens from 517 infants and young children admitted to the Civil Karachi Hospital, Dow Medical College, Karachi city, Pakistan with acute gastroenteritis from 1990 to 1994 were collected andExpand
Diversity of viruses associated with acute gastroenteritis in children hospitalized with diarrhea in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Group A rotavirus could be identified throughout year with the peaks in both the dry and rainy season, whereas other viruses prevailed mainly in the rainy season. Expand
Sequence analysis of the VP7 gene of human rotavirus G1 isolated in Japan, China, Thailand, and Vietnam in the context of changing distribution of rotavirus G‐types
It was shown that there have been no considerable changes of human rotavirus G1 isolated in Japan, China, Thailand, and Vietnam since 2000, and the phylogenetic tree showed that all of the studied G1 strains from the four countries clustered into lineage III, the same as the majority of the G1 strain isolated in China and Japan in 1990 and 1991.

Development of a novel protocol for RT-multiplex PCR to detect diarrheal viruses among infants and children with acute gastroenteritis in Eastern Russia.
This report is the first, to the authors' knowledge, detecting hepatitis A virus in feces from diarrheal infants and children in Eastern Russia and demonstrates a strong validation against the previously published RT-multiplex PCR. Expand
Molecular Epidemiology of Adenovirus Infection among Pediatric Population with Diarrhea in Asia
The result underscored the importance of adenovirus in association with acute gastroenteritis in Asian countries and showed a decrease in the rate of isolation of Ad40 and a concomitant increase of Ad41 to become the predominant serotype. Expand
Sequence analysis of vietnamese P[6] rotavirus strains suggests evidence of interspecies transmission
The results showed that the Vietnamese G9P[6] strain had high similarity with other human G9 rotaviruses, confirming a human–animal reassortant virus, whereas other three G4P[ 6] strains had best identity with porcine G4 rotavirus strains, suggesting interspecies transmission of rotav virus between porcines and humans.

Sequence analysis of the capsid gene of Aichi viruses detected from Japan, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam
A phylogenetic tree constructed from 17 nucleotide sequences of the capsid gene of the strains studied and reference strains demonstrated that Aichi virus strains clustered into two branches. Expand
Identification of enteroviral infection among infants and children admitted to hospital with acute gastroentritis in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
The results clearly indicate that RT‐PCR is a sensitive, specific assay to investigate the true burden of acute gastroenteritis due to enteroviruses in clinical fecal specimens and indicates the first detection of enteroviral infection in feces in Vietnam. Expand
Molecular and epidemiological trend of norovirus associated gastroenteritis in Dhaka City, Bangladesh.
Norovirus is an important enteropathogen responsible for viral gastroenteritis among infants and children in Bangladesh and its genogroup and genotype in norovirus-positive stool specimens are determined. Expand
