Number of Rotavirus (RV) Related Hospitalizations in Belgium - Season 2010-2011
This study aims to confirm the statistically significant decline in rotavirus related and in acute gastro-enteritis (AGE) related hospital admissions that was observed in 11 participating hospitals, after the introduction of RV vaccines in Belgium in 2006.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Ecologic or Community
Time Perspective: Retrospective
|Official Title:||Assessing the Number of Rotavirus Related Hospitalizations in 11 Hospitals in Belgium - Season 2010-2011|
- Absolute number of rotavirus related hospitalisations in children up to five years old. [ Time Frame: During the study period (from June 1st 2010 to May 31st 2011, i.e. up to 1 year) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Classification of patients with rotavirus hospitalisation by age-group of 1-year, gender, time of the event, vaccine coverage status. [ Time Frame: During the study period (from June 1st 2010 to May 31st 2011, i.e. up to 1 year) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- The duration of rota-related hospitalisation for community acquired and nosocomial infection. [ Time Frame: During the study period (from June 1st 2010 to May 31st 2011, i.e. up to 1 year) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||June 2013|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||September 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||September 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
All children ≤ 5 years old with a rotavirus detection test (inpatient and ambulatory tests) performed during the period of June the 1st 2010 and May the 31st 2011.
Other: Data collection
Each participating centre will be requested to generate a coded list of all stool samples taken during the study period (June 1st 2010- May 31st 2011) and analysed for rotavirus, in children aged ≤5 years.
This retrospective study will use anonymised data, extracted from hospital databases during the period of the 1st of June 2010 until the 31st of May 2011. IMS Health sales data will be used to provide rotavirus vaccine coverage estimates (Rotarix and Rotateq) for the Belgian population during the study period. Any additional source of vaccine coverage status describing rotavirus vaccine uptake in the study population will also be reported.
