Clinical and Epidemiologic Features of Respiratory Syncytial Virus

This book chapter, published in Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology, provides an overview of the symptoms and epidemiology for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and identifies four potential target populations for a vaccine—infants, young children over six months of age, pregnant women, and the elderly. The authors note some of the challenges of developing a RSV vaccine because each target population has different vaccine safety and efficacy concerns that may warrant different types of vaccines. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
