Choosing between Antibiotics for Acute Respiratory Tract Infections in Children
Jeffrey Gerber, MD, PhD—attending physician in the Division of Infectious Diseases, and associate director in the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia—shares how his PCORI-funded study compared two types of antibiotics often used to treat common acute respiratory infections like ear infections and strep throat in children, and what the findings suggest for clinicians and families.
Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
Populations Populations PCORI is interested in research that seeks to better understand how different clinical and health system options work for different people. These populations are frequently studied in our portfolio or identified as being of interest by our stakeholders. View Glossary
