Pediatric Services: Synagis  

Babies that are born prematurely, “preemies”, often do not get enough antibodies from their mothers to help fight the Respiratory Syncytial (sin-SISH-uhl) Virus, or RSV. They have an increased risk for severe RSV, since their lungs are less developed.
IV Care Options provides Synagis injections to infants. Synagis® (palivizumab) is an FDA-approved prescription injection of antibodies that helps protect high-risk infants from severe Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).
Most children with RSV disease suffer mild to moderate cold-like symptoms. For some high-risk babies, RSV disease can be more serious. Preemie infants born at 35 weeks or less and children 2 years old or less with certain heart or lung conditions are at high risk for developing a serious lung infection, such as Bronchiolitis and/or Pneumonia.
