Study description

Rationale and Background: Severe acute respiratory infection caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) poses a global health threat, especially impacting children under 5 and older adults, leading to significant morbidity and mortality. The ongoing development of RSV vaccines underscores the critical need for accurate information on RSV burden in high-risk groups, essential for continuous benefit/risk profile assessment. This study aims to provide crucial insights into age-specific incidence rates of RSV-related disease in Europe, contributing to ongoing efforts in comprehending and managing RSV infection burdens.

Research question: What are the age-specific disease frequencies, hospitalisation rates, and mortality rates of RSV infection in European countries over the past decade?

Study objectives: To estimate RSV-related hospitalization rates and duration, proportions of RSV-related ICU admissions and co-infection with other respiratory pathogens, as well as RSV-related mortality rates.
