Scope This report covers activities carried out during the Year1 of the project. The major tasks during the reporting period comprised Task 1 Prepare Regulatory Documents and Finalize Research Protocol during Months 1-6, Task 2 Identify and Enroll Eligible Study Subjects during Months 7-27 and Task 3 Conduct Randomized Controlled Trial during Months 7-27. Major findings The Task 1 has been successfully completed. The Tasks 2 and 3 are being implemented as planned.
