Detection of a novel equine-like G3 rotavirus associated with acute gastroenteritis in Brazil
(Microbiology Society, 2016)
Genotype G3P of rotavirus A (RVA) is detected worldwide, usually associated with Wa-like constellation and exhibiting a long RNA migration pattern. More recently, a novel inter-genogroup, G3P reassortant variant with ...
Norovirus RNA in serum associated with increased fecal viral load in children: detection, quantification and molecular analysis.
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Worldwide, norovirus (NoV) is a major cause of acute gastroenteritis (AGE) responsible for pandemics every ~3 years, and over 200,000 deaths per year, with the majority in children from developing countries. We investigate ...
Emergence of G12P rotavirus strains among hospitalised children with acute gastroenteritis in Belém, Northern Brazil, following introduction of a rotavirus vaccine
(Springer Verlag, 2019)
Species A rotavirus still remains a major cause of acute gastroenteritis in infants and young children. Globally, six genotypes (G1P, G2P, G3P, G4P, G9P and G12P) account for >90% of circulating strains; ...
Rotavirus antigenemia as a common event among children hospitalised for severe, acute gastroenteritis in Belém, northern Brazil
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: Rotavirus antigenemia and RNAemia (the presence of rotavirus RNA in serum) have been commonly identified among paediatric patients with acute gastroenteritis. In this study we examined the association ...
Molecular epidemiology of human bocavirus in children with acute gastroenteritis from North Region of Brazil
(Microbiology Society, 2019)
PURPOSE: Human bocavirus (HBoV) is a DNA virus that is mostly associated with respiratory infections. However, because it has been found in stool samples, it has been suggested that it may be a causative agent for human ...
