A Brief Update on the Current Status of RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) Infection
In modern pediatrics, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) infection is a great model of precision medicine, and various clinical studies are now being conducted in the prevention and therapy of RSV infection. RSV has a new taxonomic vocabulary, and diagnostic and omits approaches have revealed novel modalities for early detection of RSV infections and better knowledge of illness aetiology. Coordinated clinical and research efforts are critical for reducing RSV global prevalence, improving epidemiological surveillance, and improving neonatal and pediatric care. The key messages of the plenary lectures, oral presentations, and posters presented at the Pediatric Virology Study Group's '5th workshop on pediatrics virology,' focusing on recent advances in the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis, clinical management, and prevention of RSV infection in children, are summarized in this review article.
