When will my participation in the study finish?
Your participation in ASCEND will finish during 2017. You will receive your final ASCEND follow-up questionnaire sometime between January and June 2017. Please could you make an extra effort to complete this questionnaire promptly as it is really important for the study to have information about your health right up to your last follow-up form.
The main ASCEND results will not be available until 2018. This is because the study team need time to chase up outstanding questionnaires, ensure the information is accurate and analyse the results. We will write to you with the results of the study. The results will also be available on our study website.
You will be sent more detailed information about the end of the study, including what to do with your study medication, with your final follow-up form.
