On the basis of the experience of the CANONIC Study, the discussion was focused on the main working lines of the PREDICT and then moved to the different aspects of the Study. Special attention was devoted to the CRF and how to make it user-friendly and competitive. Other relevant aspects, as the pathogenetic background and the management of the samples by the biobank took up another part of the session. The PREDICT kick-off meeting finished with an overview on the ancillary studies and their developments, which will be further discussed.
Thanks to all for the enthusiastic participation in the meeting. We are very about your and input during the discussion. We are confident that we all together will achieve the goals of the PREDICT.
