CI Message

The NAIROS Trial Management Team send you our best wishes as the NHS feels the pressure of a rise in Covid-19 cases.  We understand this is a hugely stressful time both at work but also for your families.

We remain hugely grateful for the work all our collaborating centres have put in to enable NAIROS to scuccessfully achieve the six months primary outcome data numbers required for the study.  Our final twelve month data collection point is in December and so the end of the trial is now in sight!

I appreciate this final data collection is challenging both to collect and to upload to the MACRO database, but please continue to do so - Nichola our database manager in particular will be very grateful.!

Once again a huge thanks to all of you and very best wishes.  Mr Sean Carrie, NAIROS Chief Investigator, October 2020.
