Abstract : There is no change in Specific Aims from the original proposal. We are still at the phase of recruiting patients and collecting samples. To date, 111 subjects were enrolled. 44 of the subjects completed the study with all the necessary samples collected. The delay in enrollment of subjects is primarily from the unexpected extra time ( 1 year) taken for IRB approval for the entire project involving the VA system and University of Florida. Further delay is primary from patient dropout from enrollment. Sequencing data is being collected and analysis will be performed in the next few months.
