Background: Rotavirus and more recently norovirus have been recognized as 2 of the most common causes of acute diarrhea in children. Comparative analysis of these infections in a birth cohort has not been performed and can provide relevant insight on clinical and viral behaviors. Methods: Mother-infant pairs from middle-low socioeconomic background living in the Metropolitan Region of Chile are being followed for 18 months in 2 outpatient clinics. Infants are evaluated monthly for asymptomatic… 

Prospective Characterization of Norovirus Compared With Rotavirus Acute Diarrhea Episodes in Chilean Children

Noroviruses are a significant cause of moderate to severe endemic ADE in Chilean children and an effective norovirus vaccine would be of significant additional benefit to the current rotavirus vaccine in decreasing disease burden associated with ADE.

Rotavirus and Norovirus infections among acute gastroenteritis children in Morocco

This study suggests that in Morocco, norovirus is the most frequent cause of acute gastroenteritis after rotavirus, but further enteric viruses need to be integrated in the surveillance system so that a conclusion could be drawn.

Norovirus infections were more prevalent than rotavirus infections among pediatric gastroenteritis cases hospitalized or seeking emergency care, andRotavirus cases were, on average, more clinically severe than norovirus cases among participants of the same age.

Sapovirus, Norovirus and Rotavirus Detections in Stool Samples of Hospitalized Finnish Children With and Without Acute Gastroenteritis

It is shown that the most common viruses causing gastroenteritis in children may be found in the stools of an asymptomatic carrier which may function as a potential reservoir for AGE.

Epidemiologic and Genotypic distribution of Noroviruses among children with Acute Diarrhea and Healthy Controls in a Low-income Rural Setting.

Future studies are needed to understand the high rates of virus shedding in children without AGE symptoms, and greatest risk of severe norovirus disease (Vesikari score ≥11) was associated to GII.4 infections.

Norovirus Gastroenteritis in a Birth Cohort in Southern India

The high incidence and apparent lack of genogroupII specific immunity indicate the need for careful studies on further characterization of strains, asymptomatic infection and shedding and immune response to further the authors' understanding of norovirus infection and disease.

All-cause diarrhoea episodes were more severe in unvaccinated children in the first year of age, while vaccinated children had more severe episodes 18 months after vaccination, while Rotarix® vaccine was introduced into the Immunization Program of Brazil in 2006.

Clinical and Epidemiologic Features of Severe Viral Gastroenteritis in Children: A 3-Year Surveillance, Multicentered Study in Taiwan With Partial Rotavirus Immunization

Rotavirus and norovirus are the 2 most important viral agents of childhood AGE in Taiwan with partial rotavirus immunization, and different enteric viruses are associated with distinct epidemiologic and clinical features.



Comparative Study of the Epidemiology of Rotavirus in Children from a Community-Based Birth Cohort and a Hospital in South India

G10P[11] strains resembling a vaccine candidate strain caused disease in the community, indicating the need for careful epidemiological studies as well as safety studies for the vaccine candidates.

Rotavirus infection in infants as protection against subsequent infections.

In infants, natural rotavirus infection confers protection against subsequent infection, which increases with each new infection and reduces the severity of the diarrhea.

Impact of Rotavirus Infections on Outpatient Clinic Visits in Chile

A yearly estimate of 11,658 to 16,305 outpatient medical visits need to be added to previous disease burden estimates for Chilean children ≤3 years of age because of the impact of rotavirus as a cause of outpatient clinic visits.

Norovirus infection among children with acute gastroenteritis in Recife, Brazil: disease severity is comparable to rotavirus gastroenteritis

The severity of clinical illness, as indicated by the presence of dehydration, the requirement for hospitalization, and the duration of hospital stay was similar between children with norovirus and rotavirus infection, underscore the importance of norov virus as a cause of severe diarrhoea in children.
