Seeking input regarding a proposed study on chickenpox contracted in the womb or first 4 weeks
We are proposing a surveillance study to identify cases of neonatal chickenpox contracted during pregnancy or in the first month of life. This information is important for guiding discussions regarding introduction of a chickenpox vaccine.
The proposed study would be run through the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit.
We are seeking input regarding our study materials to ensure they are written in a clear understandable way. This can be done via email/teleconference.
