|The C8 Health Project, Brookmar and the Science Panel|
C8 Health Project
The purpose of the C8 Health Project was to collect health data from Class Members of the lawsuit through written questionnaires and a battery of blood tests, including a test to ascertain the amount of C8 in the blood. Brookmar, Inc. was appointed by the Wood County Circuit Court as part of the Settlement Agreement to conduct the C8 Health Project. The C8 Health Project began testing on July 27, 2005.
The Science Panel was also appointed by the Wood County Circuit Court as a part of the Settlement Agreement. The Science Panel, as part of the Community Study, received the anonymised and non-identifiable health data collected by Brookmar to examine and analyze as part of its work.
In addition, identifiable health data was released to the Science Panel for those Participants who gave additional specific consents.
