During your child’s initial hospitalization (the one during which he or she was enrolled in the study) we collected mucus in order to test it for viruses. We will compare the virus(es) your child had in the hospital with other respiratory viruses that your child may have in the future (that’s why nasal swabs are so important!).

If your child was enrolled last winter (November 2011-April 2012), then the results from the virus testing of that initial hospitalization are in! You should have received a letter in the mail from the hospital where you were enrolled in the study; contact us if you didn’t and we will make sure those results get to you.
