A total of nine work packages (WP) were defined, creating a stratified and cross-linking organisation. By integrating the clinical and translational experimental work streams, we achieved not only high quality data from randomised multi-centre clinical trials, but also advanced new technologies from experimental studies.
The Consortium undertook three randomised controlled trials carried out across six European countries with over twenty transplant centres. Samples collected during these trials were gathered in a consolidated bio-bank located in Oxford. Additionally, COPE ran two experimental packages as well as general project management including trial design and dissemination.
