As of the end of March 2014, a total of 7,400 subjects have been pre-screened, 2,450 have been screened, and 1,050 subjects found eligible for the clinical trial.

The project is lead by Professor Anne Raben from the University of Copenhagen and there are 15 partners in the consortium. The project will run for 5 years starting in January 2013.
