Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a syndrome in which individuals who have not been hospitalised recently develop an acute infection of the lungs. CAP is a leading cause of death from infection globally, with lower respiratory tract infection implicated in approximately 3 million deaths in 2016.

REMAP-CAP uses an innovative trial design to efficiently evaluate multiple interventions simultaneously.
