Update of EuroSIDA Study
In EuroSIDA we are currently
updating the Study Group list. Attached to this
Newsletter, you will find the Study Group document.
Please check if the data regarding your EuroSIDA centre
is correct. If your centre data needs to be updated,
please contact Jorunn at email@example.com
Plasma samples are
collected every 6th month as an essential part of the
EuroSIDA study. These plasma samples are increasingly
important for the study. EuroSIDA centres that do not
collect plasma samples will soon receive an e-mail where
the possibilities of starting collecting these samples
will be discussed. Please ensure that the collection of
plasma samples is mentions in your Ethical approval for
your centre´s participation in the EuroSIDA study.
he EuroSIDA Protocol has
recently been updated to version 2.0. This Protocol (and
an updated Manual of Operations) will be sent out with
the Follow up forms for dataset 37. Please file these
two study documents in your EuroSIDA Study Binder. For
some centres an updated Protocol may request an updated
Ethical approval, please check with your local Ethical
committee if this will be requested. Please note that
due to new EU regulations, it is now possible in many EU
countries to obtain a common ES approval for all centres
within the same country.
