Human astroviruses (HAstV) are the causative agents of viral gastroenteritis mainly in children worldwide. This study investigated the epidemiology and genotype diversity of HAstVs detected in children admitted to hospital with gastroenteritis in Hungary. Stool samples were collected from children with diarrhea at the Municipal “Szent László” Hospital, Budapest, Hungary, between January 2002 and December 2002. Of 2,758 samples, 607 were negative for both rotaviruses and bacterial pathogens and… Expand
Genotypes and molecular epidemiology of human astroviruses in hospitalized children with acute gastroenteritis in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TLDR
The importance of HAstV infections causing acute infantile gastroenteritis in hospitalized children in RJ, Brazil is demonstrated and molecular epidemiological surveillance is helpful for designing prevention strategies ofHAstV transmission. Expand
Prevalence of human astrovirus genotypes associated with acute gastroenteritis among children in Belém, Brazil
TLDR
Assessment of the epidemiology and genotype diversity of HAstVs detected in children who participated in a trial in Belém, Brazil with the rhesus human reassortant rotavirus vaccine tetravalent (RRV‐TV) showed that HAstV‐1 was predominant in the first year of study with highest prevalence in January/1991. Expand
Comparison of clinical characteristics between astrovirus and rotavirus infections diagnosed in 1997 to 2002 in Hungary
TLDR
The severity and clinical characteristics of human astrovirus (HAstV) infections among hospitalized children and compare them with children infected by rotavirus were determined andRotavirus‐infected children had shorter duration of diarrhea and longer hospitalization than astrov virus‐ Infected children. Expand
[First detection of human astrovirus in gastroenteritis outbreak in Hungary].
TLDR
Eziologic and clinical characteristics of the astrovirus outbreak in the nursery are described in details to prove that the possible etiological role of astroviruses in viral gastroenteritis should not forget in order after rotaviruses, caliciviruses (norovirus and sapovirus) and enteric adenoviruses. Expand
Comparison of clinical characteristics between astrovirus and rotavirus infections diagnosed in 1997 to 2002 in Hungary.
TLDR
HAstV- Infected children had similar symptoms to those occurring in rotavirus infection, however, astrovirus-infected patients had a significantly shorter duration of diarrhea and vomiting, and they required a shorter hospitalization. Expand
Astrovirus detection in sporadic cases of diarrhea among hospitalized and non‐hospitalized children in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, from 1998 to 2004
TLDR
It is documented that astrovirus is an agent of acute diarrhea in children who are inpatients or outpatients in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil although it seems to be less common as a single cause of childhood diarrhea then rotavirus. Expand
Detection and genetic characterization of classic human astroviruses in Brazil, 2010-2012
TLDR
The present study does not suggest that HAstVs currently have a major epidemiological impact, even after the introduction of a rotavirus vaccine in 2006, but it does suggest a possible emergent importance of the HAstV-4c lineage in this country. Expand
Molecular epidemiology of astrovirus type 1 in Belém, Brazil, as an agent of infantile gastroenteritis, over a period of 18 years (1982-2000): identification of two possible new lineages.
TLDR
Genome sequence variation was found among the HAstV-1 strains involving all lineages, but only five nucleotide changes translated into aminoacid changes over this period, suggesting that HAstv-1 was very stable. Expand
Molecular characterization of astrovirus in stool samples from children in São Paulo, Brazil.
TLDR
For the first time in Sao Paulo, Brazil, it was shown that astroviruses play an important role in children gastroenteritis, as described for most locations where they were detected. Expand
The circulation of human astrovirus genotypes in the Central West Region of Brazil.
Out of 1,588 faecal samples of children taken from three locations of the Central West Region of Brazil, 57 were positive for astroviruses (HAstVs) using reverse transcription-polymerase chainExpand

Human astrovirus‐associated gastroenteritis in children under 2 years of age followed prospectively during a rotavirus vaccine trial
TLDR
It is concluded that astroviruses are common causative agents in acute gastroenteritis in young children, but the symptoms of astrovirus gastroenteropathy are usually mild and the illness is therefore only of minor clinical significance. Expand
Annual incidence, serotype distribution, and genetic diversity of human astrovirus isolates from hospitalized children in Melbourne, Australia
TLDR
The incidence of astrovirus reported here indicates that the virus is a significant cause of severe diarrhea in young children and provides important molecular epidemiological information relevant to the development of preventative therapies. Expand

TLDR
RT-PCR and sequence analysis provided more detailed epidemiology of HAstV in the community than did antigenic detection methods. Expand

TLDR
Astrovirus was found in 11.4% of all children whom the authors tested for enteric viral and bacterial pathogens, making it the second most common cause of acute gastroenteritis among Spanish children. Expand

TLDR
Astrovirus, for which only rehydration therapy is required, should be considered as another common diarrheal pathogen in children <2 years old. Expand

TLDR
Astrovirus was an important cause of outbreaks of diarrhea among children attending day care centers, more frequently infected younger children, and often produced asymptomatic infections. Expand
Astrovirus Infection Among Children with Gastroenteritis in the City of Zaragoza, Spain
TLDR
The incidence of astrovirus infection in children less than 10 years of age with gastroenteritis in the city of Zaragoza, Spain, was analysed during a 12-month period and indicates that Spanish children suffering from gastroEnteritis should be routinely screened for the presence of astovirus.
