The authors of the Lugano report have been quiet for a number of years now regarding their report of the E-Cat that Industrial Heat sent them in 2014 for testing. A number of questions and critiques have been raised about the report, but no responses have been made publicly by the authors.
From what I have been able to learn, the authors of the Lugano report (or at least some of them) decided that in an attempt to confirm their first report, they would try to replicate the Lugano reactor themselves by building their own reactor.
Today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi has confirmed this. He says he knows the results they have obtained, but cannot reveal those results until they decide to publish. Here is the question about it on the JONP, and his full comment.

Dr Andrea Rossi:
Still about the replication made by the Professors of Uppsala: you said you can’t comment before they publish a report, but do you know the results of their trial to replicate the results of Lugano by themselves in a laboratory of the University of Uppsala?
Thank you if you can answer

Obviously I know the results, I have been informed about them by the Professors under NDA, but I cannot talk of them before they will publish a report, if ever, since they worked with the funding of a third party that wanted to know if the Rossi Effect exists beyond any doubt.
For this reason, they reproduced the reactor in the laboratories of the Uppsala University and followed the instructions contained in my patent. They wanted to avoid the complications generated by the infrared temperature measurement and measured the energy produced by simple calorimetry, by means of a heat exchanger and with liquid water.
I know the measurements have been very conservative, always considering only the lower values of the margin of error of the instrumentation.
I think I can say all this, because obvious.
I cannot absolutely add any further information. I will be able to comment the results only after such results will have been made public.
So at this point we don’t know when, or even if the Lugano authors will publish. I think they will want to make sure that before they do, they are absolutely certain of their results.
