RESCEU (REspiratory Syncytial virus Consortium in EUrope)
The RESCEU project aims to develop robust evidence on respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease burden and economic impact in Europe and provide infrastructure to perform future pivotal clinical trials for RSV vaccines and therapeutics.
Summary (Research in a nutshell)
Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a viral infection which can cause severe respiratory disease in the very young, elderly and in high risk groups such as premature babies or adults with chronic obstructive lung disease.
RESCEU project is an Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) funded project under the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme and has been funded for 5 years from 2017 to 2021. It comprises six work packages.
Using a multidisciplinary and international approach, RESCEU brings together clinicians, epidemiologists, scientists, health economists, statisticians, public health professionals, patient organisations, regulatory agencies and industry to address key gaps in knowledge of RSV. The project is timely given the many RSV vaccines and therapeutics currently under development.
