Project Description

Single-dose nirsevimab prevents RSV infection.

Background: Nirsevimab reduced both RSV LRTI and hospitalization: absolute risk reduction (ARR) 6.9% (95% CI, 4.1%–9.7%), number needed to treat (NNT) 14.5 (95% CI, 10.3–24.3) and ARR 3.3% (95% CI, 1.4%–5.2%), NNT 30.3 (95% CI, 19.4–69.5), respectively. These results were consistent throughout the RSV season following a single nirsevimab dose.
