BACKGROUND A phased introduction of a monovalent rotavirus vaccine occurred in Mexico from February 2006 through May 2007. We assessed the effect of vaccination on deaths from diarrhea in Mexican children in 2008 and 2009. METHODS We obtained data on deaths from diarrhea, regardless of cause, from January 2003 through May 2009 in Mexican children under 5 years of age. We compared diarrhea-related mortality in 2008 and during the 2008 and 2009 rotavirus seasons with the mortality at baseline…

Effect of Rotavirus Vaccine on Diarrhea Mortality in Different Socioeconomic Regions of Mexico
TLDR
After introduction of rotavirus vaccination, marked and sustained declines in diarrhea deaths were seen among children in all regions of Mexico, including in the least developed southern region with the highest baseline diarrhea mortality.

Sustained Reduction of Childhood Diarrhea-Related Mortality and Hospitalizations in Mexico After Rotavirus Vaccine Universalization.
TLDR
A substantial and sustained decline in diarrhea-related hospitalizations and deaths in Mexican children associated with implementation of rotavirus vaccination is documented, highlighting the public health benefits that could result in countries that adopt rotav virus vaccination into their national immunization programs.
Impact of Rotavirus Vaccination on Hospitalizations and Deaths From Childhood Gastroenteritis in Botswana.
TLDR
Following introduction of RV1 into the national immunization program, significant declines in hospitalizations and deaths from gastroenteritis were observed among children in Botswana, suggestive of the beneficial public health impact of rotavirus vaccination.
Baseline Estimates of Diarrhea-associated Mortality Among United States Children Before Rotavirus Vaccine Introduction
TLDR
Diarrhea-associated mortality among young US children from 1992 to 2006 is examined to establish baseline estimates through which the effect of rotavirus vaccines, introduced in 2006, can be assessed, and appears to be increasing in recent years.

Impact of Rotavirus Vaccine on Childhood Diarrheal Hospitalization After Introduction Into the South African Public Immunization Program
TLDR
At least 13,000 to 20,000 hospitalizations in children <2 years were prevented in the 2 years after rotavirus vaccine introduction, according to published estimates of rotav virus hospitalization burden.
Diarrhoea-related hospitalizations in children before and after implementation of monovalent rotavirus vaccination in Mexico.
TLDR
Monovalent RVA vaccination has substantially reduced childhood diarrhoea-related hospitalizations for four continuous years in discretely different socioeconomic populations across Mexico.

  • 2016
TLDR
An accelerated and sustained decline in all-cause diarrheal hospitalizations, temporally associated with rotavirus vaccine introduction, was observed in children <2 years of age, and the impact of other interventions such as improved sanitation and changes in HIV management cannot be discounted.

Diarrhea Morbidity and Mortality in Mexican Children: Impact of Rotavirus Disease
TLDR
A significant reduction in morbidity and mortality of severe diarrhea has occurred from 1990 and 2002 in Mexican children younger than 5 years old, a consequence of preventive programs initiated for cholera control since 1991, which had greater impact on SSS diarrhea and limited response for FWS diarrhea, when rotavirus is mainly present.
Global mortality associated with rotavirus disease among children in 2004.
TLDR
The high mortality associated with rotavirus disease underscores the need for targeted interventions, such as vaccines, to realize the full life-saving potential of vaccines.
Decline and Change in Seasonality of US Rotavirus Activity After the Introduction of Rotavirus Vaccine
TLDR
The 2007–2008 US rotavirus season seems substantially delayed, shorter, and diminished in magnitude compared with seasons before vaccine implementation, suggesting indirect benefits to unvaccinated individuals.
Association between pentavalent rotavirus vaccine and severe rotavirus diarrhea among children in Nicaragua.
TLDR
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.
Seasonal diarrhoeal mortality among Mexican children.
TLDR
During the winter, there was a significant increase in the number of deaths that occurred in medical care units and among children who had been seen by a physician before they died, but deaths occurring at home showed no seasonal variation.
Safety and efficacy of an attenuated vaccine against severe rotavirus gastroenteritis.
TLDR
Two oral doses of the live attenuated G1P[8] HRV vaccine were highly efficacious in protecting infants against severe rotavirus gastroenteritis, significantly reduced the rate of severe gastroenteropathy from any cause, and were not associated with an increased risk of intussusception.
