Ribavirin has been used for the treatment of RSV; however, it is unclear whether ribavirin is best given orally, intravenously, or by aerosolization. Aerosolized ribavirin is teratogenic and requires administration in a negative pressure room. Therefore, many […]

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is well known to cause serious pulmonary infections in hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients, but the effect of this virus in solid organ transplant recipients is less understood. This retrospective review identified 24 patients within 3 years who developed RSV infection, 50% of who were solid organ transplant recipients (5 […]
