Rotavirus Vaccination and Intussusception – Science, Surveillance, and Safety: A Review of Evidence and Recommendations for Future Research Priorities in Low and Middle Income Countries

This article, published in Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics, reports the results of a meeting of research and advocacy organizations, public health experts, funders, and vaccine manufacturers on post-marketing intussusception surveillance and rotavirus vaccine impact data. Meeting participants agreed with statements from expert bodies that the benefits of vaccination with currently available rotavirus vaccines outweigh the low risk of vaccination-associated intussusception, but further research is needed to better understand and delineate potential etiologies and mechanisms of intussusception. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
