ABSTRACT: Serum samples of 378 individuals belonging to different age group without complaints of respiratory infections (asymptomatic) attending out patient departments were collected randomly for a period of one year and tested for anti-RSV IgG antibody by ELISA. Anti RSV IgG was found in 24.3 percent with a higher proportion (47.6 percent) being in 0-9 years. The antibody showed a declining trend with increase in age and was detectable throughout the year with peak positivity in the month of November. Both children and adult were exposed to RSV.
