If you do publish your findings from analysis of the Medtronic rhBMP-2 data, you may apply to the YODA Project for a 5 year DUA, which will allow you to archive the data for 5 years. The sole purpose of this 5-year data retention DUA is to allow you to address questions about your findings. Additional analyses may not be performed without submitting a new application which includes revised aims. At the end of 5 years, please submit a Certificate of Data Disposition as described above.
