This study aimed to determine the frequency and intensity of neonatal diarrhea and the incidence of RVA and attempted to monitor the G and P genotypes present in the RVA strains circulating in a high milk yield cattle herd vaccinated with RVA G6P[5] strain. Fecal samples (n = 1,220) from 122 Holstein heifer calves between 0-30 days old that were born from RVA-vaccinated cows were collected at 10 different time points, regardless of the presence or absence of diarrhea. The presence of RVA in fecal samples was determined by the polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) technique and confirmed by reverse transcr...

Abstract Rotavirus infections in neonates are generally nosocomial, and differ from pediatric infections both clinically and epidemiologically. These infections are predominantly asymptomatic and often associated with unusual strains. Globally, so far limited data is available on rotavirus infections in neonates admitted at Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The aim of the present study is to determine the prevalence of rotavirus among neonates and to study their genetic characteristics. Stool specimens (n = 701) collected from neonates (n = 621) admitted during April 2016 to March 2018 mainly for prematurity, ...

This study conduct a retrospective investigation and evaluated the incidence rate, described the epidemiology of pediatric primary intussusception aged ≤24 months. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective investigation in all secondary- and tertiary-hospitals in Jinan. Pediatric primary intussusception inpatients aged ≤24 months were identified depending on ICD-10 discharge code from a total of 63 hospitals from 2011 to 2015. Demographic and clinical information were extracting from the electronic clinical record systems. RESULTS: A total of 575 pediatric primary intussusception inpatients were identified ...

(Natural News) Isn’t it bad enough that today’s vaccinations contain neurotoxins, extreme allergens, genetically modified organisms, and DNA from abortions? Do we really need to find out that a popular childhood vaccine that’s highly recommended by the CDC contains two strains of a rare and deadly virus that’s killing pigs by the thousands in China?...

We described admissions of children aged 0-5 years by diagnosis, data of admission, age and sex, and compared the proportion of all childhood hospitalizations with diarrhea before and after rotavirus vaccine introduction. RESULTS: In total, 6552 (19%) of all 34,329 hospitalizations in 0-5 year-olds had diarrhea. Of these, 3523/16,952 (20.7%) were recorded during the pre-vaccine period, 1373/6897 (19.9%) during the transition period (November 2014-October 2015), and 1656/10,480 (15.8%) during the post-vaccination period. The proportion of all childhood hospitalizations with diarrhea during the pre-vaccine period wa...
