RSV can cause serious illness. It causes infection of the lungs and breathing passages and is a major cause of respiratory illness in young children. RSV is a virus that can make anyone sick but especially children under 5 years old. RSV can spread rapidly through schools and childcare centers. Babies often get it when older kids carry the virus home from school and pass it to them. Almost all kids are infected with RSV at least once by the time they are 2 years old. There are currently no vaccines to protect against RSV.
Medicor Research Inc. is part of a clinical trial* to test an investigational† vaccine for RSV in children aged 2-5. The clinical trial is called RSV_P_101.
