Research Overview

The HARMONIE Research Study is looking at how strongly babies can be protected from serious illness due to RSV infection (respiratory syncytial virus) by giving them a single antibody dose.

RSV is a common seasonal virus that infects nearly all babies by their second birthday. Most of the time it causes a mild illness, like a cold. However, for some babies, it leads to more severe lung problems such as bronchiolitis and pneumonia.

The HARMONIE Study will include as many as 28,860 babies, from newborns to babies 12 months old, in the UK, France, and Germany.
