OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the duration of protection of pentavaent rotavirus vaccine (RV5) against rotavirus hospitalizations in Nicaragua, a developing country in Central America. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study at 4 hospitals from 2007 through 2010, including 1016 children hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed rotavirus diarrhea, 4930 controls with nonrotavirus diarrhea (ie, “test-negative”), and 5627 controls without diarrhea. All cases and controls were aged ≥6 months and born… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effectiveness of Monovalent and Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccines in Guatemala.

RV1 and RV5 were similarly effective against severe rotavirus diarrhea caused by a heterotypic strain in Guatemala, which supports broader implementation of rotav virus vaccination in low-income countries where >90% global deaths from rotvirus occur.

Effectiveness of Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccine Against a Diverse Range of Circulating Strains in Nicaragua.

Introduction of RotaTeq did not result in sustained emergence of any particular strain in Nicaragua, and variation in strain-specific effectiveness was due to an age-related decline in effectiveness rather than differences in protection against the observed strains.

Effectiveness of monovalent rotavirus vaccine in Bolivia: case-control study

The monovalent rotavirus vaccine conferred high protection against hospital admission for diarrhea due toRotavirus in Bolivian children, sustained through two years of life against diverse serotypes different from the vaccine strain.

Population effectiveness of the pentavalent and monovalent rotavirus vaccines: a systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies

A systematic review and meta-analysis of observation studies to assess population effectiveness against acute gastroenteritis found strong evidence to further support the continued use of rotavirus vaccines.

Effectiveness of rotavirus vaccines against rotavirus infection and hospitalization in Latin America: systematic review and meta-analysis

Reductions in hospitalisations and mortality due to diarrhoea were observed in countries that adopted universal rotavirus vaccination, and the vaccines were associated with changes in genotype distribution.

Molecular Characterization Of Previously Non-Typeable Rotavirus Strains In Ghana

Ghana has over the past 20 years been involved in the surveillance of rotavirus diseases by isolating rotaviruses from diarrhoeic stools and determining the strain types as part of the build up to vaccine introduction.

Rotavirus strain surveillance for three years following the introduction of rotavirus vaccine into Belém, Brazil

G2P[4] was the predominant RV strain circulating during the first 20 months of the study, followed by G1P[8], probably reflect a natural fluctuation in RV strains over time, rather than a vaccine‐induced selective pressure.

Rotavirus vaccination in Brazil: effectiveness and health impact seven years post-introduction

A small increase in intussusception incidence was seen within 1 week following the second vaccine dose, but benefits far outweigh any potential risk, and there was a significant increase in the relative prevalence of G2P genotype after vaccine introduction, reaching 100% of strains in some settings.

Effectiveness of Rotavirus Vaccination: A Systematic Review of the First Decade of Global Postlicensure Data, 2006–2016

Postlicensure data from countries across geographic regions and with different child mortality levels demonstrate that under routine use, both RV1 and RV5 are effective against rotav virus disease, supporting the World Health Organization recommendation that all countries introduce rotavirus vaccine into their national immunization program.



Effectiveness of Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccine Against Severe Disease

RV5 was highly effective in preventing severe rotavirus disease, even after a partial series, with protection persisting throughout the second year of life, and overall VE estimates were comparable during the first and second years of life and against AGE caused by different rotav virus strains.

Association between pentavalent rotavirus vaccine and severe rotavirus diarrhea among children in Nicaragua.

Vaccination with RV5 was associated with a lower risk of severe rotavirus diarrhea in children younger than 2 years in Nicaragua but to a lesser extent than that seen in clinical trials in industrialized countries.

Effectiveness of Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccine in a Large Urban Population in the United States

In this setting, a complete series of RV5 was highly effective against severe rotavirus AGE and partial immunization also conferred substantial protection.

Outbreak of rotavirus gastroenteritis with high mortality, Nicaragua, 2005.

The impact of the seasonal outbreaks of rotav virus disease could be diminished with a rotavirus vaccine, improvements in oral rehydration programs, and training of traditional healers in the proper management of children with acute diarrhea.

Effectiveness of monovalent rotavirus vaccine (Rotarix) against severe diarrhea caused by serotypically unrelated G2P[4] strains in Brazil.

This monovalent G1P[8] rotavirus vaccine was effective against severe G2P[4] rotvirus diarrhea among children aged 6-11 months, which suggests waning immunity.

Effectiveness of rotavirus vaccination against childhood diarrhoea in El Salvador: case-control study

A monovalent rotavirus vaccine was highly effective against admissions for rotav virus diarrhoea in children aged less than 2 years in El Salvador and substantially reduced the number of such admissions in this low-middle income setting.

Uptake of rotavirus vaccine and national trends of acute gastroenteritis among children in Nicaragua.

The high rate of vaccination among age-eligible children soon after vaccine introduction in Nicaragua indicates an efficient immunization program, however, in the age group at risk of rotavirus disease, vaccine coverage during the 2007 rotav virus season had yet to reach a level sufficient for making firm conclusions about vaccine impact.


Overall 3-dose pentavalent rotavirus vaccine effectiveness was 83% to 86%; it was 92% to 93% among children 6 to 11 months of age and 78% to 84% amongChildren ≥12 months ofAge.

Sustained Efficacy of the Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccine, RV5, up to 3.1 Years Following the Last Dose of Vaccine

RV5 showed sustained protective efficacy against RVGE-associated hospitalizations and ED visits, regardless of rotavirus serotype, for up to 3.1 years after vaccination.
