Seroepidemiology of group C rotavirus infection in England and Wales

Seroepidemiology of group C rotavirus infection in England and Wales
Seroepidemiology of group C rotavirus infection in England and Wales
A total of 3199 serum samples collected in 1993--1994 from two population cohorts from England and Wales were tested for the prevalence of IgG antibodies specifically directed against group C rotavirus VP6. Seroprevalence was 39% (95% confidence intervals: 37.0-40.4%). Seroprevalence was highest (46.0%) in the oldest age group (61-70 years of age). Infection with group C rotaviruses occurred at an earlier age and with higher incidence in rural than in urban populations. These results may suggest transmission from animals to humans, however further work is required to identify the reservoir of group C rotavirus for human infection.

Abstract

A total of 3199 serum samples collected in 1993--1994 from two population cohorts from England and Wales were tested for the prevalence of IgG antibodies specifically directed against group C rotavirus VP6. Seroprevalence was 39% (95% confidence intervals: 37.0-40.4%). Seroprevalence was highest (46.0%) in the oldest age group (61-70 years of age). Infection with group C rotaviruses occurred at an earlier age and with higher incidence in rural than in urban populations. These results may suggest transmission from animals to humans, however further work is required to identify the reservoir of group C rotavirus for human infection.
