More about HARMONIE

The HARMONIE Research Study follows on from other research studies which have been completed and is looking at how strongly babies can be protected from serious illness due to RSV infection by giving them a single antibody dose.

More than 3000 babies have already been given this antibody dose and were monitored closely in clinical trials. These trials have shown that this antibody dose has been well tolerated and has shown good safety results. As many as 28,860 babies in the UK, France, and Germany will take part in the HARMONIE Study and will include newborn babies to babies 12 months old who are in, or are approaching, their first RSV season.
