Working from the Tripp lab has already the testing of a RNAi therapeutics for RSV infection as ALN – RSV01 which Tripp in phase II clinical trials , initiated by Cambridge, Mass.-based Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, In the current study, contributed aware examined how a related drug affects the body’s ability to respond to later infection..

Between 75,000 to 125,000 children under one year with complications of RSV in the hospital, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Tripp finds that it. Currently no effective vaccine for the virus Unlike most viruses, the exact same strain of RSV to infect the same person repeatedly. Scientists are just now starting to explore the many ways in which RSV is different to understand the memory immune response, but Tripp finding shows that keeping RSV replication and protein expression prevents low level that the virus escapes the immune system.
