Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections are a major cause of severe respiratory disease in infants. It has been shown that there is an increased frequency of childhood wheezing in ex-bronchiolitic preteen children. This was postulated to be mediated by a vigorous virus-specific Th2 response influencing the further development of the immune system. Little is known about the possible role of the immune response to clinically mild RSV infections in this respect. We have studied the RSV… CONTINUE READING
