CTRN ReSolve - 82 Percent

Recruitment Update

as of October 1, 2019

The yearly ReSolve Investigator Meeting at the University of Rochester was a great success. We are ahead of schedule in our recruitment of study subjects both in the US and European sites, thanks to the great support from the FSHD community. The meeting was also attended by representatives from pharmaceutical companies and patient advocacy groups who have been instrumental in supporting this study.

—Dr. Rabi Tawil

Our goal was to recruit 160 US subjects by June 1, 2020. We hope to meet that goal by the end of 2019!

ReSolve Investigator Meeting Year 3

The Investigators, Clinical Evaluators, Coordinators, Executive Advisory Committee, and Laboratory and Data staff all met on October 26, 2019 to discuss the status of the study and analyze the data. We found the data to be very reliable, which can be attributed to the cross-site training to allow for consistent data collection at all study sites. Thank you to Friends of FSH Research for sponsoring the Clinical Evaluator training at our meeting! These in-person trainings are key to providing consistent data collection at each site, and perfecting techniques.
