Respiratory Syncytial Virus

Respiratory Syncytial Virus

 Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is an underdiagnosed, often lethal respiratory pathogen affecting infants and children as well as the elderly, immunocompromised, and long-term care facility populations. Infection, which occurs through aerosolized droplets and close contact, is essentially universal within the first two years of life and reinfection is common in both children and adults. Though often thought to be clinically less severe than influenza, RSV is linked to perhaps 250,000 adult, and 60,000 pediatric, deaths per year.

RSV is a filamentous/spherical, enveloped, negative-sense, single-stranded RNA virus of the Pneumoviridae family. Its 15.2 kb genome encodes eleven proteins from ten genes (1). Though the two major RSV antigenic subgroups, designated “A” and “B”, display differences in multiple proteins, the primary antigenic determinant is the “G” attachment glycoprotein. Interestingly, it is the “prefusion” form of the “F” fusion protein that has proven to be the most successful immunogenic RSV factor (via its “theta” site) in terms of eliciting neutralizing antibodies and generating promising vaccine trials against both RSV Type A and Type B (2). Several monoclonal antibody therapies directed against prefusion F are in development to augment the one available RSV monoclonal antibody therapy (palivizumab) that is indicated for high-risk infants, though it targets postfusion F and has both cost and administration issues. 

There are a number of approaches to diagnose RSV. However, the most reliable method presently is RT-PCR performed on nasopharyngeal swab samples. Antigen testing for rapid point-of-care diagnosis would greatly facilitate diagnosis as well as potentially more effective early intervention. For this reason, and to support additional research into basic RSV biology, GeneTex is developing recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies against various RSV proteins, focusing first on the RSV nucleoprotein (indicated as NP below). The initial series of NP antibodies have superior binding affinity and are validated for ELISA, sandwich ELISA (sELISA), and lateral flow assay (LFA) (see below and individual datasheets). In addition, several of them perform well in western blot, immunoprecipitation, and immunocytochemistry.
