Respiratory syncytial virus RSV Vaccines - Biotech, Pharma and Life Science Channel

13:16 EDT 29th May 2016 | BioPortfolio

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection, which manifests primarily as bronchiolitis and/or viral pneumonia, is the leading cause of lower respiratory tract infection in infants and young children. In the US, RSV LRT infection develops annually in 4-5 million children, and more than 125,000 children are admitted per year for RSV-related illness. RSV disease is the no.1 cause of hospitalization in babies under a year of age in the US. While a monoclonal antibody is commercially available to help prevent RSV disease in infants and children at high risk for severe lung disease from RSV, a RSV vaccine still is not on the market. A number of RSV vaccine candidates have entered clinical development and further are to follow. Also, next generation antibodies against RSV with improved features are in the development pipeline as well as new therapies based on silencing RSV RNA or inhibiting key targets of the virus.
