Respiratory Syncytial Virus Disease in Infants Despite Prior Administration of Antigenic Inactivated Vaccine

This article, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, details studies conducted to determine the ability of a formalin inactivated vaccine candidate to protect against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease. Results from the study showed a lack of protection against natural RSV infection in infants receiving the vaccine, as well as an association with enhancing illness among infants naturally infected with RSV after being vaccinated.
