Abstract

Rotavirus type surveillance is essential to assess the success of rotavirus vaccines. Rotavirus strains collected in 2000-2002 during hospital-based surveillance for diarrhea in Egyptian children were genotyped. Of the 259 (25.2%) rotavirus-positive specimens, 82.4% were common strains (G1p[8], G2p[4], G4p[8]), and the emergent G9 type was detected in 5.3% of samples.
