Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) December 19, 2014
FDA’s new proposed rules will make drug manufacturers revamp the way they register data on ClinicalTrials.gov.
Take 90 minutes and hear from one of the industry’s ClinicalTrials.gov experts on what is needed to do to update trial data registration procedures.
Under sweeping new changes drug and biologic makers would have to submit all clinical trial data to the federal government — including data for products not approved by the FDA — under a massive proposed expansion of data collection.
Once this proposed rule is final, it will replace all previous guidance to date.
The proposed rule outlines numerous additional requirements:
1. Under the proposed rule, companies would have to submit trial data no later than one year after the date of the final data collection on the trial’s primary outcome, even if the trial fails.
2. The rule specifies when a drugmaker needs to register a trial, which should be no later than 21 days after enrolling the first participant. Data elements that should be submitted at that time include the descriptive information, recruitment information, location and contact information for the trial site.
3. There should only be one responsible party that submits the information on any clinical trial. The sponsor would be considered the responsible party until a clinical trial investigator can be designated.
4. The rule also puts in place new requirements on adverse event data. The sponsor must submit two tables: one summarizing all serious adverse events, and another listing each adverse event that occurred to five percent or more of subjects in any arm of the trial.
5. The proposed rule would require that all studies of off-label uses of approved drugs also be publicly reported.
6. Sponsors must include information on how to obtain expanded access to investigational drugs used in applicable clinical trials, but only if those products are available through an expanded access (e.g. "compassionate use") program.
This webinar will prepare both regulatory affairs and clinical trial management teams to assure that changes are properly made to the program.
