About RSV

RSV is a major respiratory pathogen in infants, children, and adults. RSV infections in adults represent re-infections and are generally mild to moderate in severity, except in persons with high-risk conditions including the elderly and adults with underlying chronic cardiac or pulmonary disease. It is estimated that 2.4 million adults 65 years of age or older are infected with RSV annually in the U.S. leading to as many as 900,000 medical interventions and 14,000 deaths each year.1-5 RSV is the most common cause of lower respiratory tract infections and the leading viral cause of severe lower respiratory tract disease in infants and young children worldwide, with estimated annual infection and mortality rates of 64 million and 160,000, respectively.6 In the US, RSV is the leading cause of hospitalization of infants.7 Currently, there is no approved RSV vaccine available.
