In an exclusive interview with VOA, Dr. Dilruba Nasrin talks about possible treatments of diarrhea in Bangladesh and around the world. She also discusses the use of medicinal impact of zinc in the treatment of diarrhea and mentions possible reactions of antibiotics on children.
Dr. Nasrin and her team are conducting a multi-center case control study to help quantify the primary and secondary results of moderate-to-severe diarrheal diseases in developing nations. These diseases result in hospitalizations or visits to outpatient care facilities among children 0-59 months of age living in seven developing countries throughout Africa (the Gambia, Mali, Mozambique, Kenya) and Asia (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan).
Dr. Dilruba Nasrin is the Research Associate Immunologist for the Center for Vaccine Development at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine.
