The recruitment of families for the TRIGR study spanned over four and a half years and was completed
in February 2007.
For the study to be successful, we hope that all the children will continue in the study and be a part of the TRIGR family until the youngest child reaches the age of 10 years
in 2017. The oldest participants will then be 14 years old.
Altogether, 2159 children from 15 countries were included in the study
Milestone: RECRUITMENT IS COMPLETED. NO MORE BABIES WILL BE ENROLLED.
