Distribution of Rotavirus Genotypes in Europe, 2004-2005: The REVEAL Study
Rotavirus genotypes were identified in several European countries using ELISA tests, and investigators determined that G1–G4 and G9 genotypes were responsible for the majority of cases. Citing these results, the authors suggest that rotavirus vaccines should provide protection against all major genotypes to effectively decrease disease burden in Europe. This article was published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.
