No virus-specific therapy available.
Live oral vaccines for adenovirus
serotypes 4 and 7 are available for military recruits. These vaccines have markedly
reduced acute respiratory disease in military populations. They are neither
recommended nor available for civilian use. Spread of virus through vaccines
is possible but inconsequential. Vaccines for a few other serotypes have been
developed but are not yet commercially available. A new vaccine made by Barr
Laboratories is expected to be released in 2008.
