What if I don’t want to carry on with ASCEND PLUS?
We hope you will be able to continue with the study treatment for the full course of the trial.
If you choose to stop the study medication, it would be helpful if you could continue to complete the six-monthly questionnaires. However, you may decide you no longer wish to, or are no longer able to stay in contact with the study team. With your consent at the start of the study, the study scientists can also get information about your health from NHS organisations such as NHS England or other NHS bodies and health registries. If you would like us to stop collecting information about your health from these organisations you can contact the study team at any time. However, data already received by the study would still be analysed to make sure that the study produces reliable results.
You are free to stop taking part in this study at any time without this having any effect on your future medical care.
