The first Norovirus songitudinal seroepidemiological Study from sub-Saharan Africa reveals high seroprevalence of diverse genotypes associated with host susceptibility factors

Abstract:

Background Human noroviruses (HuNoVs) are a prominent cause of gastroenteritis, yet fundamental questions remain regarding epidemiology, diversity, and immunity in sub-Saharan African children. We investigated HuNoV seroprevalence and genetic and sociodemographic risk factors in Ugandan children.
