Ethical approval at 4 clinical sites

After Granada, Liverpool, Patras and Aviano have also received ethical approval for the PREPARE study protocol. Liverpool only needs to receive approval from the Royal Liverpool R&D department (NHS). In Leiden and Ljubljana approval is awaited. In Vienna, there is a discussion whether or not the study is categorized as drug trial, but they have permission to start with the control arm. We expect to have all approvals in place at the end of January.
