FOxTROT - Recruitment

The FOxTROT Trial is still open to recruitment!

FOxTROT aims to recruit 1050 patients over the course of the trial.

Currently 86 centres are signed up to participate in the trial in the UK and across Europe.

The first patient was entered onto the study on 15th May 2008.  As of 29th September 2015, 880 patients have been entered on to the trial.

The first intermational patient was entered into FOxTROT Mar-2013 from Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark, since then 69 patients have been entered from three recruiting centres in Denmark.  In January 2015 FOxTROT opened to recruitment at three recruiting centres in Sweden, with 9 patients entered so far.  We hope to open at hospitals in Spain very soon.
