Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Diarrheal disease research is focused on new interventions, new and improved vaccines, and new diagnostic methods. Micronutrient intervention using zinc and vitamin A has been very important in its impact on childhood diarrheal disease in developing countries. Vaccines for rotavirus and bacterial pathogens such as enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, Shigella and Salmonella now seem feasible, New diagnostic methods have been useful in defining new viral causes of diarrhea.
