Noroviruses: The Most Common Pediatric Viral Enteric Pathogen at a Large University Hospital After Introduction of Rotavirus Vaccination.

Abstract

We conducted an 8.5-year study examining enteric viruses at Texas Children's Hospital (TCH) before and after rotavirus vaccine introduction. Norovirus prevalence was 10.9%. Rotavirus prevalence decreased 64% after vaccine licensure. Noroviruses are the most common TCH enteropathogen and will likely eclipse rotaviruses as the most important US pediatric gastroenteritis pathogen.
