Data may be made available to collaborating researchers where there is a formal request to make use of the material. Permission to use the data must be obtained from the MAILES Executive and Investigator Committee, following the completion and submission of a MAILES data request form and a manuscript proposal form.
The MAILES study is focused on a range of harmonised self-reported and biomedically measured information from the baseline clinic, regular self-reported telephone and questionnaire-based information and follow-up clinic data. Data collected includes chronic medical conditions, risk factors, prior surgery, overall health status, quality of life, medication use, anthropometry, body composition, demographic, psycho-social and economic factors, as well as plasma and urine samples (summary of data collection items from the MAILES Study).
Initial approaches regarding the study data can be made to either the Principal Investigator Gary Wittert or the Project Coordinator Sean Martin.
