AIM To determine the severity and clinical characteristics of human astrovirus (HAstV) infections among hospitalized children and compare them with children infected by rotavirus. METHODS Retrospective, case-control study of astrovirus-infected and rotavirus-infected children. Astroviruses were detected in stool samples by enzyme immunoassay and/or reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. All stool samples were tested for rotavirus and bacterial pathogens, and all negative samples… Expand
Enteric Adenovirus and Norovirus Gastroenteritis among Under-5 years Children in Owo, Ondo State, Nigeria
TLDR
The findings suggests that human enteric adenoviruses and norovirus are becoming established etiologies of infantile diarrhea in southwest Nigeria, and vaccines should be developed and vaccination implemented alongside rotavirus. Expand
Relative Frequency of Sapovirus Among Children Under 5 Years of Age With Acute Gastroenteritis at the Aboozar Hospital, Ahvaz, Iran
TLDR
Sapoviruses belonging to genogroup II were identified as the dominant type causing gastroenteritis in children and the incidence of Sapovirus infection was the highest during the coldest months. Expand
Astrovirus and Rotavirus Co-Infections in Children With Gastroenteritis who Were Referred to Ahvaz Aboozar Hospital, Southern Iran
A total of 180 stool specimens, which were collected from children with gastroenteritis who were less than 5 years old and who were referred to Ahvaz Aboozar Hospital, were tested by enzyme-linkedExpand
Prevalence of adenoviruses 40 and 41 in children less than five years suffering from acute gastroenteritis hospitalized in Ahvaz Abuzar Hospital
TLDR
From group F ofAdenoviruses, adenovirus 41 is the major etiology of gastroenteritis in Ahvaz area. Expand
Adenovirus, calicivirus and astrovirus detection in fecal samples of hospitalized children with acute gastroenteritis from Campo Grande, MS, Brazil.
TLDR
Fecal samples from hospitalized children up to three years of age with acute gastroenteritis at Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, from May 2000-January 2004 showed the need for the establishment of regional vigilance systems to evaluate the impact of enteric viruses on viral gastroEnteritis.

Detection of Human Torovirus Like Particles and Adenovirus Type F in Children Attending to Babylon Maternity and Children Hospital
TLDR
The real time RT-PCR assay described in this study provides a rapid, highly sensitive, specific and reliable detection and quantization method enabling future TVLPs  epidemiological studies. Expand
Acute gastroenteritis: from guidelines to real life
TLDR
Ondansetron is one of the best studied antiemetics and its role in enhancing the compliance of oral rehydration therapy and decreasing the rate of hospitalization has been proved recently. Expand

A prospective case-control study of the role of astrovirus in acute diarrhea among hospitalized young children.
TLDR
Astrovirus, for which only rehydration therapy is required, should be considered as another common diarrheal pathogen in children <2 years old. Expand
One‐year survey of astrovirus infection in children with gastroenteritis in a large hospital in Hungary: Occurrence and genetic analysis of astroviruses
TLDR
This study investigated the epidemiology and genotype diversity of HAstVs detected in children admitted to hospital with gastroenteritis in Hungary and detected genotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8, indicating the importance of emerging genotype 8 infections. Expand
Astrovirus acute gastroenteritis among children in Madrid, Spain
TLDR
Astrovirus was found in 11.4% of all children whom the authors tested for enteric viral and bacterial pathogens, making it the second most common cause of acute gastroenteritis among Spanish children. Expand
Outbreaks of astrovirus gastroenteritis in day care centers.
TLDR
Astrovirus was an important cause of outbreaks of diarrhea among children attending day care centers, more frequently infected younger children, and often produced asymptomatic infections. Expand
Human astrovirus‐associated gastroenteritis in children under 2 years of age followed prospectively during a rotavirus vaccine trial
TLDR
It is concluded that astroviruses are common causative agents in acute gastroenteritis in young children, but the symptoms of astrovirus gastroenteropathy are usually mild and the illness is therefore only of minor clinical significance. Expand

TLDR
The incidence of astrovirus reported here indicates that the virus is a significant cause of severe diarrhea in young children and provides important molecular epidemiological information relevant to the development of preventative therapies. Expand

TLDR
The present report is the first prospective analysis of clinical-epidemiological trends of dual infections in young Spanish children with acute viral gastroenteritis and emphasizes the clinical importance of mixed infections as a cause of severe diarrhoea in children. Expand

TLDR
Astrovirus exhibited an unusual biennial winter peak of incidence that correlated with a greater incidence of serotype 1 virus and an increased rate of hospitalization of children aged 6 to 12 months. Expand

TLDR
RT-PCR and sequence analysis provided more detailed epidemiology of HAstV in the community than did antigenic detection methods. Expand
