BACKGROUND Rotaviruses are classified into G- and P-types, which are determined by the reactivity with antibodies to the outer viral proteins, VP7 and VP4, respectively, or sequence variation in the genes encoding these proteins. There are presently a number of different rotavirus strains co-circulating within the UK, with the common human strains G1P[8… CONTINUE READING
