There will be results from the court appointed C-8 Science Panel on the deadline date of July 31st, but they won't be complete.
The panel is asking for more time to turn in the last seven probable link evaluations.
The panel informed the attorneys Monday that it will need about three more months to complete the final series of reports on liver, kidney and heart disease, hypercholesterolia, hypertension, osteoarthritis and Parkinson's disease.
The panel says the reason they cannot complete everything by the end of July is because they "underestimated the painstaking process of resolving several assessments that are very close to the balance between presence or absence of a possible link."
So far, the panel has determined that three diseases have a probable link to C-8 in the Mid-Ohio Valley, including testicular cancer, pregnancy induced hypertension and kidney cancer.
At the July 30th court filing, the panel will file 7 more reports on asthma, COPD, stroke, infectious disease, thyroid disease, several auto-immune diseases and neurological development in children.
