RSV


Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most common pathogen causing viral pneumonia in children. RSV usually occurs in neonates and infants less than 6 months old, but also occurs in immunocompromised and elderly people. RSV causes cells to produce devastating reactive oxygen species (ros) molecules that drive cells to release signals to and overreact to the immune system, producing inflammatory responses similar to asthma attacks.
