ThE RESVINET SCALE: a New Clinical Scale for Infants with Acute Respiratory Infection
RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) infection is the second most important cause of death during infancy, especially in developing countries. RSV infection has also been linked to an increased risk in the development of chronic airway disease in later life. Therefore, research on RSV is crucial.
In order to improve research on RSV, ReSViNET (Respiratory Syncytial Virus Network) has been established. In this network, expertise and leadership are combined in order to decrease the global burden of RSV. It is our goal to improve knowledge of RSV epidemiology and to develop safe and effective therapeutic and preventive interventions.
