Rubin Lab

Pritzker medical student Donald Lei’s manuscript was accepted to the American Journal of Gastroenterology. Reuters Health Information reported on the study with comments by Dr. Rubin. “Our study did in fact demonstrate significantly reduced rates of recurrence (testing positive within 8 weeks after antibiotic cessation) and although reinfection rates (testing positive more than 8 weeks after antibiotics) were also lower, this finding was not statistically significant,” he said. “The latter was mainly a statistical power issue.” Congratulations Donald!
