Over the summer of 2014, Auriel August (’17) conducted research at the DarDar Pediatric Program in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Read all of her posts here.
Squeezing in one last patient on my last day at DPP, I was able to reach my target of 50 to include in the trial! Now I will begin a preliminary analysis of the data collected, looking at various parameters (e.g. age, years of antiretroviral therapy, history of TB) and their effect on forced expiratory volume and forced vital capacity. Hopefully, we will be able to replicate the results from the previous studies done in other East African countries.
