The PARITY Methods Centre team visited the Instituto de Ortopedia e Traumatologia da Universidade de São Paulo in Brazil earlier this week with the goal of completing the start-up phase and training the site personnel on the study’s operating procedures. While in São Paulo, the PARITY team also met with another Brazilian collaborator who has expressed an interest in participating in the trial to strategize a site specific plan for study initiation. There are now 34 sites open to enrolment across Canada, the United States, Australia, Argentina, South Africa and Brazil.
We would like to thank Dr. André Mathias Baptista, Dr. Juan Pablo Zumárraga and Dr. Ricardo Becker for their hospitality and taking the time out of their busy schedules to accommodate our trip. We very much look forward to working with all of you!
