A Study to Explore the Antiviral Activity Clinical Outcomes Safety Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of JNJ-53718678 at Two Dose Levels in Non-Hospitalized Adult Participants Infected With Respiratory Syncytial Virus


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Respiratory syncytial virus infection
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Participants must have an acute respiratory illness with signs and symptoms consistent with a viral infection (example, fever, cough, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, myalgia, lethargy, shortness of breath, or wheezing) with onset less than or equal to 5 days from the anticipated time of randomization. Onset of symptoms is defined as the time the participant becomes aware of the first sign and/or symptom consistent with a viral infection
  • Participant has been diagnosed with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection using a rapid polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based or rapid-antigen-detection test
  • Before randomization, a woman must be not of childbearing potential defined as: Premenarchal, Postmenopausal or Permanently sterile
  • A male participant must agree to the use of acceptable contraceptive measures
  • With the exception of the RSV-related illness the participant must be medically stable on the basis of physical examination, medical history, vital signs, and electrocardiogram (ECG) performed at screening

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Hospitalized participants or participants expected to be hospitalized within 24 hours of screening
  • History of or concurrent illness (beyond a comorbid condition) that in the opinion of the investigator, might confound the results of the study or pose an additional risk in administering study drug to the participant or that could prevent, limit, or confound the protocol-specified assessments
  • Participants who had major surgery within the 28 days prior to randomization or have planned major surgery through the course of the study
  • Participants who are considered by the investigator to be immunocompromised within the past 12 months
  • Participant has known or suspected chronic or acute hepatitis B or C infection
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Participants with clinically significant abnormal ECG findings (other than QT-interval corrected for heart rate according to Fridericia [QTcF] interval greater than [>] 500 millisecond [ms]) not consistent with the underlying condition in the study population, as judged by the investigator

Recruitment Status: Open
