According to the CDC, the flu is more dangerous than the common cold for children. Pediatric influenza or "the flu" typically requires medical care in children under the age of five, and in some cases can result in death. It most commonly produces complications in children under the age of two, but as many as 20,000 children aged five and younger are hospitalized every year with flu-related problems.
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness that affects the nose, throat, and lungs—causing usually mild illness in healthy humans. In some instances the illness can be severe, and more rarely can lead to death. Symptoms of the pediatric flu can include:
Certain people are at higher risk of developing flu-related complications, including young children.
If your child is suffering from the pediatric flu, they might be eligible to volunteer for a clinical trial in your area. Participants may receive compensation for time and travel. To see if your child may qualify, please contact us at 614-501-6164 or complete our online volunteer form.
The staff is all extremely friendly and professional. Looking forward to future studies
This is a great way to make extra money and be involved in a research study that will help and benefit many people to come. Thanks. I’ve really enjoyed myself with the program and with the staff.
Have found a significant change to the better from my research study. I experienced less shortage of breath and much better sleep. My daily activities are less hampered because of my better breathing. Thank you all.
Excellent staff. Dr. Arora took the time to not only explain everything but made every step of the research process a very pleasant, hopeful and informative journey.
