Faces of RSV

Published On 03/24/2014

This is the beast of RSV.

It infects every child. Almost all will get it by their 2nd birthday.

It is the No. 1 cause of hospitalization of infants in the United States - 125,000 U.S. children are hospitalized each year. The virus causes 10 times more infant deaths as influenza.

Le Bonheur Children’s physicians and researchers are looking for better ways to treat and eventually prevent children from getting RSV.
