RSV Vaccine Pediatric Study

A study evaluating a nasal spray vaccine for infants and children

RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) 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.

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.

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

  1. RSV surveillance by parents for two RSV seasons (via phone/email etc.)
  2. Three office visits and additional illness visits if necessary
  3. Two or more blood draws
  4. Two nasal administrations of research vaccine/placebo
  1. Children ages 6 months to <22 months are currently able to participate, and we will soon open enrollment to children 2-years to 5-years old.
  2. Participants and parents/guardians who are able to attend all scheduled visits
  3. Generally in good health
