Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most common cause of serious acute lower respiratory illness in infants and young children, affecting nearly all children by the age of two years, as well as the elderly. Treatment is supportive as there is no licensed vaccine available. Improved understanding of the immunology and pathogenesis of RSV infection has led to the development of novel candidate vaccines. This Special Issue of Vaccines is directed toward reviewing basic and translational vaccines and disease intervention strategies for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). This issue includes articles investigating the mechanisms of immunity and disease pathogenesis associated with RSV infection and RSV vaccines. A goal is to provide the reader with a better understanding of the conceptual and functional differences between innate and adaptive immune responses so as to provide the foundation for novel vaccines and antiviral approaches. This issue will also investigate the host and viral regulatory pathways involving regulation of immune responses RSV.
