The pentavalent rotavirus (RV) vaccine RotaTeq™ has been available in industrialized countries since 2006. Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the benefit of RV vaccination under routine conditions of use. A systematic review of all publicly available data from RotaTeq™ vaccine-effectiveness and vaccination-impact studies in the USA, Europe and Australia between 2006 and February 2010 was undertaken. Depending on the population studied, effectiveness of up to 100% (95% confidence… 

Impact and Effectiveness of RotaTeq® Vaccine Based on 3 Years of Surveillance Following Introduction of a Rotavirus Immunization Program in Finland

Severe RVGE requiring hospitalization was virtually eliminated in vaccine-eligible children in the 3 years following implementation of universal RotaTeq vaccination in Finland.

The cost effectiveness of rotavirus vaccination in Iran

Introducing rotavirus vaccine into EPI program would be highly cost-effective public health intervention in Iran and a saving for the society with the same averted DALYs.

A critical literature review of health economic evaluations of rotavirus vaccination

New evidence on the vaccination effectiveness in real-world, new ways of modeling herd protection and assessments of QoL in children could help more precisely define the conditions under which RV vaccination would be cost-effective in developed countries.

Effectiveness of the Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccine in Preventing Gastroenteritis in the United States

In this first nationwide study evaluating VE under conditions of routine use, RV5 was highly effective in preventing RGE and AGE and in reducing health care resource utilization.

RotaTeq™: a three-dose oral pentavalent reassortant rotavirus vaccine

Results from a large clinical trial, as well as ongoing postmarketing surveillance, indicate that the 3-dose oral pentavalent RV vaccine (RotaTeq™) is safe and well tolerated, without evidence of increased risk of intussusception.

Uptake, Impact, and Effectiveness of Rotavirus Vaccination in the United States: Review of the First 3 Years of Postlicensure Data

The implementation of routine childhood immunization againstRotavirus has rapidly and dramatically reduced the large health burden of rotavirus gastroenteritis in US children and continued monitoring of rotvirus diarrhea is needed to determine if immunity wanes as vaccinated children get older and to better quantify the indirect benefits of vaccination.

Decline in Cases of Rotavirus Gastroenteritis Presenting to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia after Introduction of a Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccine

The abrupt decline in rotavirus gastroenteritis cases during the 2007-2008 season likely resulted from vaccination, and protection rates appeared to have exceeded vaccination rates, so herd immunity may have contributed to some degree to the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Reduction in Rotavirus-associated Acute Gastroenteritis Following Introduction of Rotavirus Vaccine Into Australia's National Childhood Vaccine Schedule

Early evidence from the NIP in Australia has demonstrated high rotavirus coverage with both RV1 and RV5, supportive of both direct vaccine protection, as well as with indirect herd protection.

Pentavalent Rotavirus Vaccine and Prevention of Gastroenteritis Hospitalizations in Australia

RV5 is highly effective at preventing rotavirus hospitalizations in a developed country setting, confirming efficacy figures from the pivotal clinical trial.

Rotavirus Vaccines in Belgium: Policy and Impact

A decrease in the number of rotavirus infections and a 4- to 6-week delay in the onset of disease and the peak of incidence in the postvaccination period coincides with the increased vaccine uptake.

Rotavirus Hospital Surveillance in the Era of Immunization

In New Orleans, G3P(8) is becoming a predominant strain of RV, and it is unclear whether this phenomenon represents natural variation or it is caused by introduction of vaccines.

Cost-effectiveness and Potential Impact of Rotavirus Vaccination in the United States

Routine rotavirus vaccination would unlikely be cost-saving in the United States at present, but may still be considered a cost-effective intervention.
