Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of the absolute number of rotavirus related hospitalisations in children up to five years old. [ Time Frame: From June 1st 2006 up to 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Classification of patients with rotavirus hospitalisation by birth cohorts, gender, time of the event, vaccine coverage status. [ Time Frame: From June 1st 2006 up to 1 year ]
  • Determination of the duration of rota-related hospitalisation for community acquired and nosocomial infection per birth cohort. [ Time Frame: From June 1st 2006 up to 1 year ]
  • Evaluation of the herd effect. [ Time Frame: From June 1st 2006 up to 1 year ]

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Group A
All children ≤ 5 years old with a rotavirus detection test (inpatient and ambulatory tests) performed during the period of June the 1st 2006 and May the 31st 2007.
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 2006- May 31st 2007) and analysed for rotavirus, in children aged ≤5 years.

Detailed Description:
This retrospective study will use anonymised data, extracted from hospital databases during the period of the 1st of June 2006 until the 31st of May 2007. 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.

Ages Eligible for Study:   up to 5 Years   (Child)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
