Help prevent RSV pneumonia in healthy infants. Seattle Children’s is recruiting infants for a phase 3 clinical research study looking at an investigational medication (monoclonal antibody) for prevention of RSV lower respiratory tract infection. Infants may be eligible if they were born on or after May 1, 2019, reached gestational age of 35 weeks or later and are healthy with no known history of RSV infection or lung disease. Infants would be in the study for about one year and six months, and would come to the Seattle Children’s research center for at least six visits. Infants would be closely monitored for respiratory illness throughout the study.

The MELODY study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. It will include about 3,000 babies globally. Dr. Janet Englund of Seattle Children’s is the principal investigator.

If you would like to learn more about the study or have a patient who is interested, please contact IDResearch@seattlechildrens.org or call 206-884-1100.
