Dear Lalito Pelino Jr,


Thank you for your request dated Jan 04, 2023 08:23:35 AM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

We would like to inform you that the clinical trial using VCO that is being done by the DOST-FNRI is currently ongoing thus we cannot disclose any information concerning this.  We have completed already 2 community trials on VCO and the abstract of these studies can be found here:

We are aware that the DOH has launched clinical trial on VCO as well, so you might want to inquire from them. 

If you are not satisfied with the result of the review, you then have the right to appeal to the Office of the President under Administrative Order No. 22 (s. 2011).

Thank you.
