Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

2- is it a recrudescence or a reinfection ? from the mother for example?
3- does preterms need an extended course longer than 6 -8 wks of treatment? ..
