Each participant included in this study was observed during his/her palivizumab prophylaxis during the prevailing RSV season. According to the requirements for non-interventional or observational studies, no diagnostic or monitoring procedures were applied to the participants included in the study other than those which would ordinarily be applied in the course of the individual therapeutic strategy. Only data which were part of routine medical care were collected.
Data collection was conducted initially in season 2002/2003 using paper-based case report forms (CRFs); beginning in season 2008/2009 a protected internet-based data entry platform was used. Both the paper-based CRFs and the electronic system were subject to changes during the whole time of the registry.
Data collection for registry seasons 2002/2003 - 2006/2007 was conducted by use of paper-based CRFs and hospitalization forms. Corresponding results were published in 2011 and are hence depicted together and reported here as a separate reporting group.
Registry seasons 2007/2008 and 2008/2009 were considered transitional years in the process of switching the type of data collection to an electronic CRF (eCRF) system. Although data collection of registry 2007/2008 was still paper-based, it was not included in the original publication and hence, results are reported separately. In season 2008/2009 the mode of data collection was switched from paper-based CRFs to an eCRF system, however, several physicians still used the paper-based CRFs for documentation. In order to use all documentations and lose as few data as possible, results for 2008/2009 are based on a combination of paper-based CRF and eCRF data. Hence, it was decided to keep the results for 08/09 separate from the depiction of the homogenous, eCRF-based results of the following seasons.
Data collection for registry 09/10 - 15/16 was implemented by an eCRF system. Corresponding results are therefore depicted together in one reporting group.

|Official Title:||Prospective, Non-interventional Observation Study for the Use of Palivizumab in High-risk Children in Germany- SYNAGIS|
|Actual Study Start Date :||September 1, 2002|

Participants were prescribed palivizumab (Synagis®) prophylaxis according to the German summary of product characteristics (SPC) for Synagis® to prevent serious disease due to RSV infection during the RSV season.
- Percentage of Participants With RSV-associated Hospitalization [ Time Frame: During RSV season (September to June) from 2002 to 2016 ]
- Diagnosis Documented at Hospital Discharge in Registries 02/03 - 06/07 and 07/08 [ Time Frame: During RSV season (September to June) from 2002 to 2008 ]Hospitalization due to RSV was documented on a separate hospitalization form. The data below represent the number of hospitalizations documented on forms; some participants may have had more than one hospitalization. Multiple entries for discharge diagnosis were possible.
- Diagnosis Documented at Hospital Discharge in Registry 08/09 and 09/10 - 15/16 [ Time Frame: During RSV season (September to June) from 2008 to 2016 ]In the season 2008/09, the eCRF system for data collection was introduced. Hospitalization due to RSV infection was documented on a separate hospitalization form in the electronic case report form (eCRF). Physicians were asked to specify a primary diagnosis at hospital discharge.
- Presence of Complications During Hospitalization [ Time Frame: During RSV season (September to June) from 2002 to 2016 ]
- Parental Cooperation in Registries 02/03 - 06/07 and 07/08 [ Time Frame: During RSV season (September to June) from 2002 to 2008 ]Cooperation of parents with the prophylaxis regimen was categorized as very good, good, moderate, bad or very bad.
- Parental Cooperation for Registry 08/09 and 09/10 - 15/16 [ Time Frame: During RSV season (September to June) from 2008 to 2016 ]
Cooperation of parents with the prophylaxis regimen was evaluated per injection in registry 08/09 and 09/10 - 15/16. The categories for cooperation ratings were changed to good, satisfying, or bad:
Good: all palivizumab doses could be administered as planned; Satisfying: a single palivizumab dose was missed by the parents; Bad: more than one palivizumab doses was missed by the parents.
- Mean Number of Palivizumab Injections [ Time Frame: During RSV season (September to June) from 2002 to 2016 ]The mean number of palivizumab injections per participant, per season.
