The higher compliant patients were found to be twins (31.3%) and had low birth weight (69.9%). Compliant subjects also had a higher rate of NICU stay at birth compared to the noncompliant subjects. During the post index period, approximately 164 subjects out of 5,003 total had at least one RSV-related hospitalization. Non-compliant subjects had more cases of RSV and (5.9%) RSV-related hospitalizations compared to (2.3%) compliant subjects. Most cases of RSV and RSV-related hospitalization occurred before the initial dose of palivizumab was administered, approximately 27% or 61 RSV-related hospitalizations.
