Rotavirus genetic diversity, disease association, and temporal change in hospitalized rural Kenyan children.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The effectiveness of rotavirus vaccines will be dependent on the immunity conferred against prevalent and emergent variants causing severe diarrheal disease. Longitudinal surveillance of disease-causing strains is a prerequisite to intervention. METHODS: Molecular characterization was conducted on rotavirus-positive stool samples from children admitted with diarrhea to a rural district hospital during 2002-2004.
