A search for the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson in pp collisions at the LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is presented. The results are based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.6 fb−1 recorded by the CMS experiment. The search is conducted in the decay channel H → ZZ → 2l2ν. No excess is observed in the transverse mass distributions. Limits are set on the production of the Higgs boson in the context of the Standard Model and in the presence of a sequential fourth family of fermions with high masses.
