Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Nasal Spray Vaccine Study

A study evaluating a nasal spray vaccine for children ages 6 months to 22 months. 

The purpose of this global study is to further evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a research nasal RSV vaccine compared to a placebo. The study will last approximately 24 months.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a common seasonal virus.  Infants and children are at greater risk of acquiring RSV because of their maturing immune system and lack of prior exposure.  Most of the time it causes a mild illness like a cold, but for some children RSV leads to a more severe lung problem.

Unfortunately, 2-3 infants out of every 100 with RSV infections become hospitalized.  In fact, each year in the United States an estimated 58,000 – 80,000 children younger than 5 are hospitalized due to RSV infection.

Currently there are two FDA approved vaccines for RSV, both for adults 60 and older.
