The ARCHIE study would like to find out whether giving an antibiotic called co-amoxiclav to 'at risk' children (aged 6 months to 12 years) early on when they have flu or a flu-like illness might help stop them from developing bacterial infections and becomming more unwell. The research would also like to explore if the co-amoxiclav would help them get better more quickly or affect how well antibiotics work against similar infections in the future.
Who can be involved?
- Children aged 6 months to 12 years
- Presenting with influenza-like illness (i.e. cough and fever)
What happens to people taking part in this research?
By taking part your doctor or nurse will ask you some questions about your child's flu-like illness, take a nose and throat swab from your child, give some study medication and ask you to fill out a diary.
