Focus on knowledge creation

Without ideas there is nothing to manage

The Older Adults Clinical Study has recently become the first clinical study in RESCEU to achieve full recruitment rate, according to schedule and with the appropriate age distribution. The study focuses on Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) in older adults aged 60 years and above, and is part of the 4 Clinical Studies conducted by RESCEU across Europe (Birth cohort study, Infant case-control study, Older adults study and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) study), to address the lack of knowledge on the burden of RSV in certain populations and provide substantial insights on the impact of RSV on health systems and societies throughout Europe.
A total of 8 Clinical Centres are participating, under the coordination of the University Medical Center Utrecht.
