Background: Elderly infected with Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) often bear low viral loads that stay below the detection limits of commercial assays. A more sensitive detection of RSV infections can improve patient management, guide containment strategies, and possibly prevent morbidity and mortality among populations most severely affected by RSV.
