Please note the ANZCTR will be unattended from Friday 24 December 2021 for the holidays. The Registry will re-open on Monday 17 January 2022. Submissions and updates will not be processed during that time.

For new and updated trial submissions, we are processing trials as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience. We recommend submitting your trial for registration at the same time as ethics submission.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Acute respiratory illness (ARIs) and acute gastrointestinal (AGE) illness rates per 10,000 child-days in healthy children in the first two years of life - This measure will be calculated using counts of ARIs and AGE in study children during the first two years of life as the numerator, and person-time in child-months on the study as the denominator.
Timepoint [1] 0 0
Two years
Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
Pathogen-specific rate of episodes of ARI and AGE per 10,000 child-days in healthy children in the first two years of life - Viral and bacterial testing will allow to calculate pathogen-specific rates: This measure will be calculated using counts of pathogen-specific ARIs and AGE in study children during the first two years of life as the numerator, and person-time in child-months on the study as the denominator.
Timepoint [1] 0 0
2 years
Secondary outcome [2] 0 0
Detection of novel pathogens in healthy children in the first 2 years of life. - A subset of samples collected during this study will be used to attempt to identify previously undetected pathogens in children, through microarray technology and random primer PCR testing.
Timepoint [2] 0 0
2 years

Summary
Brief summary
In this study, the investigator will be approaching pregnant women to undertake 2 years of
weekly respiratory and nappy specimen collection from their healthy new born infant. These
specimens will be mailed to the Queensland Paediatric Infectious Diseases (Qpid) Laboratory
where they will be stored and batched tested for viruses and bacteria. As well as this,
parents will keep a simple daily symptom diary for their child, allowing us to match
detection of viruses and bacteria to periods when the study child did or did not have
symptoms. This will help our understanding of what finding these viruses and bacteria in
specimens from children really means.
