Abstract : There is no change in Specific Aims from the original proposal. We are at the phase ofrecruiting patients and collecting samples. To date, 77 subjects have been enrolled out ofthe expected 100 total subjects. 19 of the 77 subjects have completed the study (i.e.necessary samples collected). The delay in enrollment of subjects is primarily from the unexpected extra time (difference 1 year) taken for IRB approval for the entire project involving the VA system and University of Florida. No sequencing data has been collected to date.
