All Ages: Influenza Nasal Swab Study
• Now open in Rockville, MD
Influenza is an infectious disease characterized by the abrupt onset of respiratory and systemic symptoms, such as fever, cough, sore throat, and rhinitis. Infection can be particularly dangerous for children and infants, but being able to detect the presence and/or strain of influenza can help guide proper treatment.
This research study is for an investigational nasal swab test intended to detect the presence of influenza.
