MedImmune to present 4 abstracts on RSV and influenza at 47TH Annual IDSA Meeting
Date:10/30/2009

PHILADELPHIA, P.A., October 30, 2009 MedImmune announced today it will present four abstracts at the 47th Annual Meeting of Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) being held here October 29 through November 1, 2009. These abstracts advance the body of data surrounding respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza prevention, highlighting MedImmune's leadership in pediatric health.

"MedImmune is dedicated to conducting ground-breaking research on the prevention of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and influenza in children," said Alexander A. Zukiwski, M.D., executive vice president and chief medical officer. "We believe the data being presented at the conference may help advance innovative healthcare solutions for these important causes of respiratory infections in children."

MedImmune abstracts to be presented at IDSA on RSV include:

  • Prophylaxis Utilizing Nebulized Motavizumab, a Monoclonal Antibody Against Fusion Protein of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Zhang J, et al. Poster Session: October 30, 2009; 12:30 2:00 PM; Poster Hall A / Poster # 608

    BACKGROUND: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is the primary cause of pneumonia and bronchiolitis in young children, and also causes disease in older adults. This study evaluated the prophylactic use of nebulized motavizumab, an investigational anti-RSV humanized monoclonal antibody against RSV fusion protein, in cotton rats. The findings suggest that prophylaxis with nebulized motavizumab may inhibit RSV infection and spread in the lungs and may provide an alternative to the current intramuscular antibody delivery.

    MedImmune abstracts to be presented at IDSA on influenza include:

  • A Postmarketing Evaluation of the Frequency of Use and Safety of Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Use in Unapproved Children Less Than 59 Months of Age Tennis P, et al. Poster Session: October 31, 2009; 12:30-2:00 PM; Hall A / Poster #1179
