Calicivirus From Novel Recovirus Genogroup in Human Diarrhea, Bangladesh

Emerg Infect Dis. 2012 Jul;18(7):1192-5. doi: 10.3201/eid1807.120344.

Abstract

To identify unknown human viruses in the enteric tract, we examined 105 stool specimens from patients with diarrhea in Bangladesh. A novel calicivirus was identified in a sample from 1 patient and subsequently found in samples from 5 other patients. Phylogenetic analyses classified this virus within the proposed genus Recovirus.
