Rotavirus is one of the leading aetiologic agents of nosocomial infections among children. The development of preventive measures is therefore important. The efficacy of Lactobacillus GG in the treatment of rotavirus infection has been reported in literature, but there is only one recent study about its effectiveness in prevention of infection. The role of breast feeding in the prevention of rotavirus infection is still debated.
