ONLINE COVER Moving Forward with an RSV Vaccine. Calves are natural hosts for bovine respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection.

A pair of papers by Taylor et al. and Green et al. translate a prime-boost vaccine strategy for human RSV first into calves and then into humans in a phase 1 clinical trial.
