The student will participate in a randomized clinical trial of inhaled NO in children in Mbarara, Uganda with severe cerebral malaria. We have thus far entered 30 children in this randomized trial. We expect to enter about 93 children. We expect to find a signal of reduced inflammation and organ dysfunction in this pilot trial. A medical student can help us to collect the data, analyze the data and understand the effect of inhaled NO in this common and often lethal disease of children.
The student will have the opportunity to travel to Uganda.
