    Institute of Tropical Medicine and International Health, Charite University Medicine Berlin, Berlin, Germany
    BMC Infect Dis 7:104. 2007
    ..Acute diarrhoea is a major cause of childhood morbidity and mortality in sub-Saharan Africa. Its microbiological causes and clinico-epidemiological aspects were examined during the dry season 2005/6 in Tamale, urban northern Ghana...

    J Clin Microbiol 45:2695-7. 2007
    ..Compared to PCR results, sensitivities and specificities were 75% and 95% for rotavirus and 22% and 84% for adenovirus. In resource-poor settings, ICTs may help to overcome difficulties in the diagnosis of rotavirus infection...
