A molecular epidemiological study on common diarrheal viruses was conducted in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam between October 2002 and September 2003. Fecal samples were collected from 1,010 hospitalized children with acute gastroenteritis. Those samples were screened for groups A, B, and C rotavirus, adenovirus, genogroups I and II norovirus (NoV), sapovirus (SaV), and human astrovirus (HAstV) by RT‐multiplex PCR, and the positive specimens were characterized further by ELISA, nested PCR, or… Expand

TLDR
The distribution of viruses and genotypes of individual viruses causing gastroenteritis in Lanzhou, China changed greatly during 2005-2007 and the relative contribution of these viruses changed greatly over 2 years. Expand
Identification of human astrovirus infections among children with acute gastroenteritis in the Southern Part of Vietnam during 2005–2006
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree clearly indicated that HAstVs‐1 worldwide could be classified into four different lineages, in which, Vietnamese astroviruses and other recently isolated strains from other countries clustered into the distinct lineage, 1d. Expand
Molecular characterization of rotaviruses, noroviruses, sapovirus, and adenoviruses in patients with acute gastroenteritis in Thailand
TLDR
It is suggested that enteric viruses play an essential role in patients with acute gastroenteritis attending hospital and mainly in children who have a higher prevalence of group A rotaviruses and noroviruses. Expand

TLDR
It is clear from this study that RAV is still the cause of diseases in Japan and to the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of RV P[6] strain in humans in Japan. Expand
Genetic diversity of noroviruses and sapoviruses in children hospitalized with acute gastroenteritis in Chiang Mai, Thailand
TLDR
It is demonstrated that human caliciviruses are important enteric viruses that caused acute gastroenteritis in the hospitalized children in Chiang Mai, Thailand from 2002 to 2004, and a great genetic diversities of NoV and SaV were observed. Expand
Symptomatic and asymptomatic infections of rotavirus, norovirus, and adenovirus among hospitalized children in Xi'an, China
TLDR
Findings highlight the importance of NoV as a causative agent of pediatric diarrhea after RV based on the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of Nov infection, and particularly convey information of asymptomatic infections of enteric viruses in young children. Expand

TLDR
No significant differences were observed between rotavirus and norovirus infections with regard to the incidence and the clinical severity of the disease, especially in dehydration. Expand
Detection and molecular characterization of noroviruses and sapoviruses in children admitted to hospital with acute gastroenteritis in Vietnam
TLDR
NoV is the second most frequent cause of diarrhea in hospitalized children in North Vietnam, with frequency of vomiting or fever similar between children with NoV and RV infection, yet, NoV caused diarrhea with longer duration. Expand

Incidence of enteric adenoviruses among children in Thailand and the significance of these viruses in gastroenteritis
TLDR
The data demonstrate that Ad40 and Ad41 are causes of gastroenteritis in this population, but among the spectrum of diarrheal etiologies, they may be proportionately less important than they are in countries with temperate climates. Expand
