Rotavirus type A


The RVA dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Rotavirus type A detection by using qPCR. {Rotavirus} is a genus with a genome of 11 segments of double-stranded RNA from the family Reoviridae. Rotavirus are the most common cause of severe vomiting and diarrhea among infants and young children below the age of five. Rotavirus A, the most common species, causes more than 90% of rotavirus infections in humans. Transmission is through the faecal-oral route, via contact with contaminated hands, surfaces and objects, and possibly by the respiratory route. Viral diarrhea is highly contagious. In addition, rotaviruses infect the young of many species of animals and they are a major cause of diarrhoea in wild and reared animals worldwide. As pathogen of livestock, notably in young calves and piglets, rotaviruses cause economic loss to farmers because of costs of treatment associated with high morbidity and mortality rates.
