The COMBAT study is a randomized clinical trial evaluating the early administration of plasma compared to the standard of care. Over the past one year, we have obtained FDA approval, are in process of obtaining the Colorado Multiple Institutional Review Board approval, and have submitted our protocol to HRPO for approval. We have tested the equipment to be placed on the ambulance and refined the electrical and mechanical components. Furthermore, we have developed an ambulance prototype to test the equipment and operating procedures to ensure efficient and complete data and sample collection.
