Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The occurrence of new or progressive BOS grade 0p through 3 in RSV-infected lung transplant recipients [ Time Frame: 180 days after randomization ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • RSV symptoms as measured by mean cumulative daily total symptom score [ Time Frame: 14 days after randomization ]
  • Viral load as measured by viral area under the curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: 6 days after randomization ]
  • All cause mortality [ Time Frame: Throughout the study ]
