  1. Detection of Norwalk virus or Norwolk-like virus infections in finnish infants and young children.

    Article - En anglais

    Norwalk virus (NV) and Norwalk-like viruses are important causes of epidemic nonbacterial gastroenteritis in older children and adults.

    Serologic responses to NV of 154 Finnish infants and young children participating in a rotavirus vaccine study were examined by ELISA with a recently available baculovirus-expressed recombinant NV capsid protein.

    In 4 serially collected sera (at the median ages of 3,4,14, and 23 months), 49% of children had at least one NV infection over the ~2-year study period.

    Children with low NV-specific IgG titers (<1 : 50) at the median age of 4 or 14 months were significantly more likely to acquire an NV infection by the median age of 14 or 23 months, respectively, than children who had higher NV IgG titers (>1 : 50) (P<. 05).
