About us

Immune Defence Study

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has funded the RECUR Programme to develop and test interventions to find out if they can reduce the frequency, severity and duration of respiratory infections (such as colds, sore throats, sinus, chest or ear infections. This also includes COVID-19)

We have developed a website called Immune Defence which will help us to see if using nasal sprays, or getting more physically active and reducing stress, can help people get fewer of these types of infections.

We have involved both a range of patients and patient representatives as collaborators in the design of our study to help ensure the interventions are relevant and appropriate to patients. 

This study is on the Clinical Research Network (CRN) portfolio website and is a registered Clinical Trial on the ISRCTN database.
