Systematic Review of Regional and Temporal Trends in Global Rotavirus Strain Diversity in the Pre-Rotavirus Vaccine Era: Insights for Understanding the Impact of Rotavirus Vaccination Programs

The authors of this article, published in Vaccine, provide comprehensive information on rotavirus strain surveillance in the pre-rotavirus vaccine era. This information was gathered by systematically reviewing rotavirus genotyping studies spanning a 12-year period from 1996 to 2007. A detailed picture of global strain prevalence from the pre-rotavirus vaccine era is important to evaluate any potential changes in circulating strains observed after widespread introduction of rotavirus vaccines worldwide. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
