Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Rotavirus Gastroenteritis of Any Severity Caused by Rotavirus Serotypes G1, G2, G3, G4 and G-serotypes Associated With Serotype P1A [ Time Frame: At least 14 days following the 3rd vaccination ]
    Any severity cases of rotavirus gastroenteritis caused by G1, G2, G3, G4 or G-serotypes associated with serotype P1A occurring at least 14 days postdose 3 in the per-protocol population using per-protocol case definition


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Moderate to Severe Rotavirus Gastroenteritis Caused by Rotavirus Serotypes G1, G2, G3, G4 and G-serotypes Associated With Serotype P1A [ Time Frame: At least 14 days following the 3rd vaccination ]
    Moderate to severe cases of rotavirus gastroenteritis caused by G1, G2, G3, G4 or G-serotypes associated with serotype P1A occurring at least 14 days postdose 3 in the per-protocol population using per-protocol case definition. Severity score was calculated based on frequency and duration of diarrhea, vomiting, elevated temperature, and behavioral changes. Score of >8 and <=16 was considered moderate, and >16 was considered severe.

  • Number of Participants With Severe Rotavirus Gastroenteritis Caused by Rotavirus Serotypes G1, G2, G3, G4 and G-serotypes Associated With Serotype P1A [ Time Frame: At least 14 days following the 3rd vaccination ]
    Severe cases of rotavirus gastroenteritis caused by G1, G2, G3, G4 or G-serotypes associated with serotype P1A occurring at least 14 days postdose 3 in the per-protocol population using per-protocol case definition. Severity score was calculated based on frequency and duration of diarrhea, vomiting, elevated temperature, and behavioral changes. Score of >8 and <=16 was considered moderate, and >16 was considered severe.
