The Role of Lactate in Viral and Bacterial Infection

Overview

Acute upper respiratory tract infection(AURI) is common in children, and viral infection is the main cause. However, several children with viral infection are easy to suffer from secondary bacterial infection, and the mechanism is unclear.

Full Title of Study: “The Role of Lactate From Viral to Bacterial Infection”

Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Prospective
  • Study Primary Completion Date: December 31, 2024

Detailed Description

Lactate is an important molecule in the spread and metastasis of tumor by suppressing the innate immune response. As is known, the immune system is not mature in children and it is reverse related to the age of children. An reasonable hypothesis is that the lactate is a independent risk factor in the children with viral infection progress to bacterial infection. Here, our aim is to test the hypothesis.

Interventions

    • a child is infected by virus only
  • Other: viral and bacterial infection

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • viral infection
