The Prescription Opiate Addiction Treatment Study (POATS) locked its database on September 8, just 2 months after the last patient information was entered into the InForm electronic data system.
The POATS study (CTN-0030) was carried out at 11 sites, including Providence Behavioral Health Services in the Pacific Northwest Node, and enrolled 653 participants into Phase One of the trial. Phase Two of the study enrolled 360 participants. Congratulations to Providence and all POATS participants!
The long-term follow-up study to POATS will follow these participants for another 42 months after the end of the main study. It is expected to be completed in the summer of 2012.
