BACKGROUND Rotaviruses cause acute viral gastroenteritis worldwide. It has been estimated that, each year, 440,000 deaths that occur among children are attributed to rotavirus infection, mainly in developing countries. In India, the diversity of rotaviruses reported during the 1980s and 1990s emphasizes the need for surveillance of cocirculating strains, to follow the rapid changes in circulation and to detect novel strains. METHODS We analyzed data from published epidemiological studies, to… CONTINUE READING
