WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- MedImmune announced today it will present four abstracts at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) 2009 National Conference & Exhibition that add to the company's growing body of research on the burden of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) on children, as well as pediatric infectious disease prevention.

"With influenza and RSV becoming more widespread this time of year, it remains important to better understand the impact of infectious diseases on pediatric health and the healthcare system, as well as what we can do to prevent illness," said Alexander A. Zukiwski, M.D., executive vice president and chief medical officer. "The data being presented at the conference build on our extensive foundation of research and help advance innovative solutions for preventing illnesses that negatively impact the health of children."

MedImmune abstracts to be presented at AAP on RSV include:

Motavizumab is an investigational RSV-specific monoclonal antibody that is currently being evaluated for its potential to prevent serious disease caused by RSV in high-risk pediatric patients. This randomized, double-blind, active-controlled clinical trial evaluated the safety and tolerability of motavizumab in children with congenital heart disease -- a population at high risk for serious RSV disease.
