Rotavirus Group A Surveillance and Genotype Distribution in Russian Federation in Seasons 2012-2013
ABSTRACT

Rotavirus infection is one of the primary causes of acute gastroenteritis in industrialized countries and may be a cause of severe disease in children. Here we present the results of analysis of specific indicators which characterize the burden of rotavirus infection in Russia such as passive surveillance data for rotavirus gastroenteritis cases (RG), the proportion of outbreaks of rotavirus per calendar month and laboratory-based data of rotavirus infection occurrence in lethal cases involving children. Specific features of rotavirus [P]G genotypes distribution in different geographic regions of Russia from 2012 through 2013 are also provided.
