June 10, 2008 — The Practice-Based Research Network (PBRN) of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) is currently conducting two studies and extends invitations for participation to interested chiropractors. The studies have institutional review-board (IRB) approval from Life Unversity.
The duration of the IRB approval is from January 2008 through June 2009. The data, concerning safety and efficacy of chiropractic treatment of pregnant women, will be collected from doctors and patients.
