  • Household transmission of gastroenteritis EMERGING INFECTIOUS DISEASES Perry, S., Sanchez, M. D., Hurst, P. K., Parsonnet, J. 2005; 11 (7): 1093-1096


    Transmission of infectious gastroenteritis was studied in 936 predominately Hispanic households in northern California. Among 3,916 contacts of 1,099 primary case-patients, the secondary attack rate was 8.8% (95% confidence interval 7.9-9.7); children had a 2- to 8-fold greater risk than adults. Bed-sharing among children in crowded homes is a potentially modifiable risk.
