Congratulations to this achievement!

We are happy to announce that the EU-ROP project has now been successfully submitted at the leading Ethics Committee at the University Medicine Greifswald and we have received a positive opinion on the project. This allows us to start entering patient data into the EU-ROP database.

Over the last few weeks our new EU-ROP database was developed at the Center for Clinical Studies in Cologne. The parameters to be collected in the database were defined together with our expert team consisting of ophthalmologists, neonatologists and parent representatives from around the globe. The EU-ROP database builds on the ROP registry which has collected ROP data in Germany since 2012. We are happy that ROP registry is now part of the joint EU-ROP database endeavor.
