BACKGROUND Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a major cause of lower respiratory tract infection and hospitalization in infants. Nirsevimab is a monoclonal antibody to the RSV fusion protein that has an extended half-life. The efficacy and safety of nirsevimab in healthy late-preterm and term infants are uncertain. METHODS We randomly assigned, in a 2:1 ratio, infants who had been born at a gestational age of at least 35 weeks to receive a single intramuscular injection of nirsevimab or… 

Optimal Respiratory Syncytial Virus intervention programmes using Nirsevimab in England and Wales

Nirsevimab has the potential to be cost-effective in England and Wales not only for use in high-risk infants but also for use on a case-by-case basis.

Real-World Studies of Respiratory Syncytial Virus Hospitalizations among Moderate/Late Preterm Infants Exposed to Passive Immunoprophylaxis with Palivizumab

Exposure to palivizumab was associated with a reduction in RSVH rates that was comparable to the reduction seen in controlled clinical trials (weighed mean 4.0-fold reduction), and Immunoprophylaxis should be used in high-risk infants.

RSV disease in infants and young children: Can we see a brighter future?

ABSTRACT Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a highly contagious seasonal virus and the leading cause of Lower Respiratory Tract Infections (LRTI), including pneumonia and bronchiolitis in children.

Expected Impact of Universal Immunization With Nirsevimab Against RSV-Related Outcomes and Costs Among All US Infants in Their First RSV Season: A Static Model

An all-infant immunization strategy with nirsevimab could substantially reduce the health and economic burden for US infants during their first RSV season and all infants, including palivizumab-eligible and preterm infants, would benefit from this strategy.

A single-centre prospective cohort study analyses clinical outcomes for 65 preterm very-low-birthweight neonates born to CMV IgG positive mothers, setting the stage for a large multicentred study on the impact of post-natal CMV acquisition via breastmilk including shortand long-term outcomes of pCMV in preterm neonates.

Prevention and Treatment Strategies for Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)

An update of the current treatment options for acute disease (RSV-specific and -non-specific) and different therapeutic approaches focusing on RSV prevention and the development of new potential vaccines and the successful implementation of passive immunization are provided.
