Recruitment of the smallest infants in the Connection study paused
August 25, 2021

IBT started to recruit infants in Strata A (weight of 500g-749g) in The Connection Study on April 29 2021. Today, 68 infants have been recruited to the group.

In accordance with the study protocol and clinical observations, enrolment of infants to Strata A has been paused awaiting a safety review by the Data Monitoring Committee (DMC). Subjects already randomized will continue treatment as per protocol, and enrolment of subjects into Strata B (750g-1000g) will continue. IBT is awaiting advice from the DMC before taking any decision regarding further recruitment of infants in Strata A. The DMC is expected to give their opinion in September this year.
