Acute febrile illness
- Reported the causes of fever in Chiangrai, northern Thailand. Scrub typhus and dengue were the major aetiologies seen with biomarkers (particularly CRP) found to have a role in differentiating viral from bacterial infections (PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2018;12(5): e0006477).
- Conducted a retrospective review of antibiotic prescribing in acute illness (BMJ open. 2018;8(7):e022250. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2018-022250).
- Completed social science studies on local conceptions of illness, medicine, and the role of point of care CRP testing (Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2018;98(6):1661-70 and Soc Sci Med. 2018;202:1-12).
- Demonstrated a modest reduction in antibiotic prescribing with use of standalone CRP testing in the community in acutely febrile patients in Southeast Asia – results of the CRP RCT (Lancet Global Health. 2019; 7(1):e119-e131).
