Thank you to our hard working site coordinators & Czech collaborators for enrolling more than 20 patients since the last update –total study enrolment is now at 144 patients! If we maintain this rate of enrolment we project to complete enrolment by the end of summer 2017.
Special thanks to coordinators at the Ottawa Civic and Hamilton sites for enrolling two new DCD patients this month. The DCD enrolments always seem to be a little bit more demanding than the non-donor patients due to the need for extra attention to detail and coordination with the transplant teams so thank you for everyone who has made the effort to make this work. These patients provide very valuable information for us. So far 8 DCD patients have been enrolled in the study.
Additional details on DePPaRT study enrolment are available on the study progress page.
