Abstract : During this eighth year of the project, we completed the community consultation and public disclosure process in Baltimore. The results were submitted to the University or Maryland IRB, which has approved the trial. This approval included changing the local principal investigator to Dr. Tisherman with agreement from the Conflict of Interest Officer. We have also shifted the coordinating center for the study to the University of Maryland. Appropriate documents were subsequently submitted to the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), Office of Research Protections (ORP), Human Research Protection Office (HRPO), which has also approved the study. Training for the trauma surgeons involved in the project has been completed. The Shock Trauma Center of the University of Maryland Medical Center is now open for enrollment.
