Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects With Severe Rotavirus Gastroenteritis (RV GE) Caused by the Circulating Wild-type Rotavirus Strains [ Time Frame: From Year 2 up to Year 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Severe RV GE is an episode of severe GE in which rotavirus other than vaccine strain was identified in a GE stool sample.

    Note that this outcome measure is secondary in the study protocol. We have reported it here as primary outcome measure, since none of the primary outcome measures in the study protocol pertain to the time point (Year 3 follow-up) presented in this summary.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Reporting Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From the end of the primary study up to Year 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An SAE is any untoward medical occurrence that: results in death, is life-threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject, or may evolve into one of the outcomes listed above.
