The rate of recruitment exceeded our expectations and we are very pleased to have achieved our target sample size for PICNICC Objective 1 ahead of schedule. Pilot analysis of Objective 2 blood sampling is due to take place in February/March 2018. Data cleaning is well underway nationally and we aim to start analysing results from the study in March/April.
We have a very thorough eCRF and if anyone is interested in exploring a specific area of fever and neutropenia please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further. Thank you to all those involved in the PICNICC study for your hard work and enthusiasm!
