Abstract

Background: BD Veritor™ System for Rapid Detection of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a new-generation lateral flow immunochromatographic assay for objective detection of RSV in respiratory specimens from children. Objective: To evaluate the performance of BD Veritor™ System for Rapid Detection of RSV in respiratory specimens collected from pediatric patients. Study design: A prospective, multicenter clinical trial was undertaken at five study sites representing geographically diverse regions of the U.S. to assess the performance of the BD Veritor™ System for Rapid Detection of RSV in comparison to R-mix shell vial culture and ProFlu+ reverse transcription-PCR assay (Gen-Probe/Prodesse). Results: 440 nasopharyngeal washes/aspirates (NPW/A) and 706 nasopharyngeal swab (NPS) specimens from U.S. subjects. <. 20 years of age were collected and tested using the BD Veritor™ System and compared with shell vial culture and real-time RT-PCR results. Analysis of the data indicates the overall sensitivity and specificity for BD Veritor™ System for all sample types combined was 90% and 97.0% versus shell vial culture and 75.5% and 98.7% versus RT-PCR respectively. Conclusion: Overall, the BD Veritor™ System for the Rapid Detection of RSV performed well when compared to both viral cell culture and RT-PCR in children.
