Abstract

CANDEIAS, J. A. N.; ROSENBURG, Cornélio P.  and  RACZ, M. L.. Detection of rotavirus by counterimmunoelectrophoresis in cases of infantile diarrhea. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1978, vol.12, n.1, pp. 99-103. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101978000100011.

The faecal samples of 162 children with acute diarrhea were tested by counterimmunoelectrophoresis in order to detect rotaviruses. In 72.7%, 77.7% and 66.6% of samples from children of different age groups, varying from 6 to 8 months to 1 year or older, a positive result was found.
