RSV Researcher Makes Gains in Finding Treatments
Date:4/10/2008

ticals to develop the treatment and presented the complete results of the study at the International Symposium on Respiratory Viral Infections meeting in Singapore in early March.

The clinical trial, named GEMINI, was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study of ALN-RSV01 in 88 healthy adult subjects experimentally infected with a wild-type clinical strain of RSV developed and manufactured from one of DeVincenzo's study patients at Le Bonheur. DeVincenzo's GEMINI study's results and their potential impact on human health were reviewed in the Wall Street Journal in early March.

The next stage in developing the treatment will be to conduct Phase II trials in naturally infected adult patients. Subsequent studies involving children are being planned.

Founded in 1952, Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center is the Mid-South's first and only comprehensive pediatric medical facility. Every year Le Bonheur treats almost 140,000 children from 47 states and many countries. Le Bonheur is home to one of the nation's 10 busiest pediatric emergency departments and hosts one of the largest pediatric surgical brain tumor programs.

Le Bonheur is currently in the midst of a fundraising campaign to build a new state-of-the art hospital. The $327-million facility is scheduled to open in 2010 and will double the space for patient care, research and teaching.
