Abstract : At the end of study year 4 we completed all expected enrollment, intervention, and data collection as per our protocol. All necessary IRB approvals were obtained, and all regulatory documents submitted including the annual IRB continuing review, attached to this report (Shepherd IRB and University Maryland). All study personnel hold current certifications in order to participate in research. Multiple meetings occurred, both in person (at ASIA conference in San Antonio, May 2014) and via monthly teleconferencing in order to coordinate activities between the Baltimore and the Atlanta sites. Thirty seven research participants initiated the study (with 6 drop outs) by the September 30, 2014 end of enrollment date. Screening data entry and analysis is initiated and we eagerly examining our outcome data. Two manuscripts are published 9 presentations (platform and poster) occurred from our study proposal and screening data analysis to date.
