Human astroviruses (HAstVs) have now emerged as another common cause of non-bacterial acute gastroenteritis (AGE) in humans worldwide. This study investigated the epidemiology and genetic diversity of human astrovirus strains circulating among infants, younger children (up to 6 years), older children and adolescents (>6-17 years) and adults (18 years and above) hospitalized for diarrhea and their role in AGE in Kolkata, India. A total of 2535 fecal samples were screened for the presence of… CONTINUE READING
