BACKGROUND Rotaviral antigen and RNA have recently been identified in the serum of patients with rotaviral gastroenteritis, but the roles they play in disease remains undetermined. METHODS Rotaviral antigen and RNA were quantified by enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay and by quantitative reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction in stool and serum specimens from children with rotaviral diarrhea (n=102), children with nonrotaviral diarrhea (n=40), and nondiarrheal control children (n=30… CONTINUE READING
