Globally, rotavirus is the leading cause of diarrhea-related hospitalizations and deaths among young children, but the burden of rotavirus disease in Indonesia is poorly documented. From January through December 2006, we conducted prospective surveillance (inpatient and outpatient) among children aged <5 years at 6 hospitals in 6 provinces of Indonesia, using standardized methodology. Of 2240 enrolled children hospitalized for diarrhea, 1345 (60%) were rotavirus positive. Of 176 children…

Detection of group A rotavirus strains circulating among children with acute diarrhea in Indonesia

The study showed the high incidence of rotavirus infection in Indonesia with G1P[8], G1p[6], and G2P[4] as the dominant strains circulating in Indonesia and the proportion of predominant strains changed by year.

The burden of rotav virus gastroenteritis in the Philippines is high and is predominantly caused by strains against which current vaccines have shown good efficacy, suggesting that routine immunization will have a large impact on rotavirus disease burden.

Severity and treatment level of acute gastroenteritis with rotavirus in children under 5 years in INDONESIA

The severity of gastroentrities in children under 5 years using vesikari score are higher in diarrhea due to rotvirus positive than non rotavirus, and the treatment level plan C is higher than plan B and A in diarrhoea due toRotavirus.

Genotype Profiles of Rotavirus Strains in Children under 5-year-old Outpatients with Diarrhea in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia

The most common rotavirus positive in age group is >12–24 months and >24–59 months, while the highest percentage is at the age of ≤6 months, which is also the most common among children under five with acute diarrhea.

Risk factors of rotavirus diarrhea in hospitalized children in Sanglah Hospital, Denpasar: a prospective cohort study

It was found that boys had a greatest risk of rotavirus infection than girls, and good nutritional status and breastfeeding provided the same protection against rotav virus and non-rotavirus diarrhea.


The frequency of rotavirus infection in children admitted to the Military Hospital Rawalpindi with acute watery diarrhea was determined, with vomiting leading to subsequent dehydration and overall burden of all serotypes is expected to be much more.

The Role of Rotavirus Genotype in the Severity of Acute Diarrhea in Children Under 5 Years Old at Surabaya, Indonesia

The severity degree of acute diarrhea in children with genotype G2P(4) is the highest prevalence genotype of Rotavirus infection in Dr. Soetomo General Hospital.

Epidemiology and economic losses of rotavirus infection associated with hospitalization of Armenian children.

Estimates of the economic losses and epidemiological characteristics of rotavirus infections in hospitalized children in Armenia suggest that introduction of a national immunization program against RV initiated in 2012 may decrease this burden.

Hospital-based surveillance for rotavirus diarrhea in children in Yangon, Myanmar.

The present study confirms the importance of the etiological role that rotavirus plays in childhood diarrhea and confirms that 53 of the children who were hospitalized for diarrhea died during the study period.

Incidence of severe rotavirus diarrhea in New Delhi, India, and G and P types of the infecting rotavirus strains.

A total of 62,475 children <5 years old from a defined population of approximately 500,000 children and adults from slums in New Delhi, India, were assessed for 1 year by means of passive

Acute diarrhea and rotavirus infection in newborn babies and children in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, from June 1978 to June 1979

It is concluded that, in Indonesia, rotavirus infection is a major cause of childhood diarrhea throughout the year, but is an uncommon cause of diarrhea in newborn babies.

Global Illness and Deaths Caused by Rotavirus Disease in Children

The tremendous incidence of rotavirus disease underscores the urgent need for interventions, such as vaccines, to prevent childhood deaths in developing nations.

Estimates of rotavirus disease burden in Hong Kong: hospital-based surveillance.

Combined active and passive surveillance data indicate that 4.6% of all general pediatric admissions to HA hospitals in Hong Kong were associated with rotavirus infection.

Rotavirus serotypes causing acute diarrhoea in hospitalized children in Yogyakarta, Indonesia during 1978–1979

Rotavirus strains in stool specimens from 111 children admitted to hospital in Yogyakarta, Indonesia for treatment of acute diarrhoea were serotyped using VP7 serotype specific monoclonal antibodies in a double sandwich enzyme immunoassay, finding that comprehensive immunity can be established simultaneously against the four major human serotypes.

Impact of Rotavirus Infections on Outpatient Clinic Visits in Chile

A yearly estimate of 11,658 to 16,305 outpatient medical visits need to be added to previous disease burden estimates for Chilean children ≤3 years of age because of the impact of rotavirus as a cause of outpatient clinic visits.

Neonatal rotavirus infection in Bangladesh: strain characterization and risk factors for nosocomial infection.

Hospitalized neonates in Dhaka have increased risk for infection with RV as early as the first week of life with strains having the unusual P[6] genotype, confirming studies in India showing that neonatal RV infection can be common and may occur with strains distinct from those circulating in the community.

Predominance of Rotavirus Genotype G9 during the 1999, 2000, and 2002 Seasons among Hospitalized Children in the City of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil: Implications for Future Vaccine Strategies

It is shown for the first time that the G9 viruses also have a similar epidemiological characteristic, albeit for a shorter period of surveillance, and the next generation of rotavirus vaccines will need to provide adequate protection against disease caused by G 9 viruses.
