News and Updates

June 2020: The TOPPITS trial recruited 346 participants, overall, to the extended end of recruitment date of 28 February 2017.  The trial has now closed completely, and we hope that the results will be published shortly.

Congratulations are due to all staff at all the trial sites: in Newcastle, Sunderland, Nottingham, Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and Stockport, for exceeding the original recruitment target, and continuing the trial to completion.  We are grateful to all trial investigators for their huge efforts, to this end. 

If you are a trial participant, we would like to thank you for your contribution to clinical research, and hope that you found it a worthwhile experience.

Thank you to everyone involved!

From Janet and the study team
