Do sites get paid for taking part in the Boost II trial?
Yes, please contact BOOSTII Project Manager for details.
When did the recruitment start and when does it finish?
Recruitment began in March and will continue until December 2009 with the aim of recruiting 1200 babies within Australia.
What do we do once we receive ethics approval?
Please send a copy of the ethics committee approval to BOOSTII Trials Co-ordinating Centre. We will send you all trial materials and the BOOSTII oximeters. Your hospital will then be ready to start randomising patients.
Issues surrounding Indemnity?
Boost II is an investigator initiated collaborative group study for which there is no industry sponsor designated to provide indemnity for the trial. Therefore each participating institution must provide its own indemnity for the study.
Issues surrounding consent?
Boost II involves preterm babies therefore parents will need to provide informed consent. The baby needs to be enrolled as soon as possible (within 24 hours of birth).
