After several months of delay in the start of the DIABFRAIL-LATAM study due to the global pandemic situation, the recruitment of the first participating subjects has started.

Thus, on Monday 14 February 2022, the recruiting centre of the Javeriana University of Colombia recruited its first 4 subjects.

According to the project work plan, this entity will include approximately 15 subjects per week until completing, during the 6 months that the recruitment is planned to last, the 350 subjects assigned to this study.

After Colombia, Peru, Mexico and Chile are expected to start the recruitment shortly and, once the delay caused by the pandemic has been overcome, to continue with the scheduled project’s work plan.
