ISAAC in Mumbai

I came to know about the ISAAC study by chance. Right from that time I wanted to be a part of this study, because though I had done research on many topics, they were not multi-centre studies. Therefore I requested Dr Shah from JASLOK Hospital to include me in the study.

The very systemic nature of the study impressed me so much that I passed an on-line examination for Principle Investigators course.

During the study we did find it difficult to access these children because some of the heads of the schools were not very keen on this study. We had to convince them and then could get one class at a time.

Our only regret is we could not follow them or treat them afterwards.
