APICS-01 seeks to address clinical and operational knowledge gap for acute lung injury ALIsurvivors by defining patterns of unmet needs, resource utilization, readmissions, and long-term functional outcomes among ICU survivors. We will employ a prospective, multi-center, observational study of outcomes and healthcare utilization among 200 ALI survivors which are directly relevant to a military population. In the first year of award, APICS-01 secured all approvals, finalized all study materials, and initiated enrollment ahead of schedule. Enrollment is currently at 64 ahead of a projected 50 at this point. Analysis of data will not occur until after enrollment is closed. Findings to date are of a highly effective multicenter collaborative performing a high-quality clinical study ahead of schedule. The screening activities are functioning well, the eligibility criteria are working well, and the enrollment curves are solid.
