All research involving human subjects within Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) requires approval of the MSH Research Ethics Board prior to the initiation of a research project. The MSH REB has similar responsibility for investigators from other institutions who may wish to carry out research on Mount Sinai Hospital premises or with Mount Sinai Hospital patients.. IIn the event that an investigator cannot determine whether an intended investigation constitutes research (for instance, quality assurance studies do not constitute research), the investigator should approach the Research Ethics Board office for such a determination by calling 416-586-4875. Providing such consultation on ethics matters is part of the responsibility of the Board.. ...

Continuation Request: Research projects are approved for a period of one year, unless a shorter interval is specified by the IRB. All projects that continue beyond the maximine shall submit (a) an IRB application cover sheet indicating the PI, the project title, and that a continuation is requested, and (b) a brief statement about any changes or modifications to the protocol since originally approved. This should be sighed by the PI and his/her department head, and submitted directly to the IRB Chairperson (or designee) for review. The IRB Chairperson, or designee, may approve the continuation. If modifications have been made since the original approval that either significantly change the project or significantly increase participant risk, then the IRB Chairperson (or designee) may inform the PI that submission of a completely new application is required. This application will then be reviewed as a new application (see section F1.1.1, F1.2.1, or F1.3.1). If modifications are approved, then the ...
Subjects. All patients had relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis and were participants in 1 of 2 clinical trials, CAMMS-223 and CAMMS-224 (Cambridge UK Research Ethics Committee [REC 02/315 and 03/078]), in which alemtuzumab (supplied by Genzyme) is given by intravenous infusion of 12-24 mg/d for 5 days, followed by retreatment at 12 months. Patients and controls consented to venesection for research purposes (studies were approved by Cambridge UK Research Ethics Committee [LREC 02/263]) and all were free from exposure to other disease-modifying agents, including steroids, for at least 1 month at the time of blood sampling. For each experiment, all available samples, from all relevant patients, at all possible time points were used; there was no subgroup selection. More samples were available for serum studies, as retrospective frozen samples could be used. Assays of lymphocyte biology could not be performed on many patients shortly after alemtuzumab due to their profound lymphopenia. All DNA ...

Ethical considerations. Ethical approval was obtained from the University of Witwatersrand Human Research Ethics Committee (protocol number M081013). Permission was sought from the Provincial Health Department and from the clinics and the unit managers where interviews were conducted. Each participant was provided with sufficient and understandable information regarding the research in order for them to make a voluntary informed decision to participate. Participants signed the consent form before data were collected. Confidentiality and anonymity were ensured throughout by protecting the participants identity and privacy when reporting the findings. The use of a skilled moderator and assistant moderator, welcoming of participants and an overview of the topic, ground rules which included that one person to speak at a time, listening respectfully to one other and emphasising that all participants need not agree with each other and the use of a moderator to keep the group focused, were adhered to ...

By recording the firing patterns of the tibialis anterior muscle, we were able to generate irregular trains of stimuli, which incorporate both short (high‐frequency) and long (low‐frequency) interspike intervals. An intramuscular tungsten microelectrode was inserted into the muscle belly of tibialis anterior in a single subject performing isometric ankle dorsiflexions. The subject was asked to sustain ~30% maximal voluntary contraction for 70 sec. The mean frequency for this train was 19.3 ± 8.7 Hz, with a discharge variability of 32.3% (S.D/mean × 100). Instantaneous frequencies ranged from 5.7 to 151.5 Hz. The inter‐spike intervals exhibited by this train were used to create an irregular train that emulated the firing of volitionally activated motoneurones.. Successful experiments were conducted on seven male and three female subjects (19-51 years) under the approval of the Human Research Ethics committee of the University of Western Sydney. Subjects provided informed written consent. ...
huA33 production. The construction, production, and preclinical testing of the humanized CDR-grafted A33 IgG1 (huA33) have been described previously (21-25). This study was conducted according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations and as part of an Investigatory New Drug application to the FDA and was also approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the Austin Hospital.. Trial design. The trial was an open-label, dose escalation, biopsy-based phase I study. The primary objectives were to establish the safety of i.v. administered radiolabeled huA33 in patients with colorectal carcinoma and to determine the biodistribution, pharmacokinetics, and immunogenicity of huA33 in these patients.. A single infusion of huA33, labeled with [131I]huA33 (400 MBq: 10 mCi) and [125I]huA33 (40 MBq: 1 mCi), was administered 7 days before scheduled surgery. Each infusion was administered in 100 mL of 5% human serum albumin/normal saline over a 30-minute period. The uptake of radio-iodine in ...

Statistical analysis and ethical issues. Data were added to the data base of the original cohort for analysis in the statistical software SPSS version 15.0. Descriptive statistics, qui-square test, Fishers exact test, measures of association force and logistic regression were used. Five percent random samples of the interviews were repeated by supervisors to control data quality.. This project was approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the Universidade de Passo Fundo (recorded under number 024/2007). All participants read and signed a free informed consent.. Results. From the 2,285 children who composed the initial cohort in 2003, 24 have died and 145 were excluded (8 were adopted, one mother developed mental illness and 2 have died, 134 have moved away from the city). After several attempts, it was impossible to localize 420 children, and 9 refused to participate in the study. In this stage, 1,687 children were included (73.8% of the original cohort).. The most significant losses ...
The research was approved by the South East Essex Research Ethics Committee (Ref. 09/H1102/45) and began in April 2009. All National Health Service (NHS) mental health trusts in England were contacted to confirm whether they had an in-patient or community mental health rehabilitation unit that accepted patients referred from acute admission wards. Units designated as continuing care, forensic or secure rehabiliation were excluded. The research was conducted in keeping with usual research governance guidance and local approvals were gained at each site. Data were collected between July 2009 and March 2011.. The quality of each unit was assessed using the QuIRC,5,6 a web-based toolkit, completed by service managers (available at www.quirc.eu), which reports on seven domains of care in longer-term units for people with complex mental health problems (Living Environment; Therapeutic Environment; Treatments and Interventions; Self-Management and Autonomy; Social Inclusion; Human Rights; ...

A nested case-control study was implemented using The Health Improvement Network (3), which is a database containing electronic medical records from family practices in the U.K. (4). Data analyzed included medical diagnostic codes recorded for each consultation, as well as hospital referrals and discharges, and drug codes for all prescriptions issued by the practice. Primary care electronic records were subject to several validation studies (5). This study was approved by the South East Research Ethics Committee. The study population was drawn from 114 family practices with 644,495 registered patients aged ≤100 years. Diabetic case subjects were selected if the date of the first clinical diagnosis of diabetes was between 1 November 2003 and 31 October 2004 and if they were aged between 30 and 89 years at diagnosis and were never prescribed insulin or diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Two control subjects were randomly selected for each case. The control subjects were matched for age, sex, and ...
Case 2. As part of a research project, international colleagues will send you MRI images for analysis. If the images have been de-identified and you do not obtain information directly from the participants, then you could take the position that your work does not involve human participants. However, if your contribution results in a published article that lists you as an author, be aware that the federal government may determine that you engaged in research without prior IRB review. It would be best to approach your IRB prior to the study; present a proposal that emphasizes that you will be examining de-identified records that were collected with appropriate institutional approval at the original site and that your research poses only minimal risk to participants. Stipulate what would happen if you were to discover a previously undetected pathology in your review of the images. Your IRB will probably give you a letter exempting your role in the project from oversight ...

Background In recent years, tensions between IRBs and principal investigators (PIs) have risen, posing the needs to understand these conflicts, their underlying causes, and possible solutions. Researchers frequently complain about IRBs, but how IRBs perceive and respond to these criticisms is unclear. Methods I conducted in-depth, semi-structured interviews of two hours each with 46 chairs, administrators, and members. I contacted the leadership of 60 IRBs around the country (every fourth one in the list of the top 240 institutions by NIH funding) and interviewed IRB leaders from 34 of these institutions (response rate = 55%). Results Interviewees suggest that IRBs and PIs may view the nature and causes of these conflicts very differently and misunderstand each other, exacerbating tensions. Interviewees often recognized that they were seen by PIs as having power, but many IRBs saw themselves as not having it (e.g., because they are
The nature and scope of what IRBs cover has transformed tremendously over the past decade or so. The major shift came with the Gelsinger case that was noted up-thread, which really kicked the research community out of a torpor and made requirements for getting approval for human subjects research much more stringent (not even at the IRB level, but throughout the process, particularly for Conflict of Interest oversight). What passed for an IRB application back in the late 90s/early 00s would get laughed out of the office now. The passage of HIPAA and the establishment of IRBs as privacy boards also added more to the workload, and research in general has been a metastasizing field with an attendant increase in volume of submissions. Yet, offices that handle research oversight and review (like the IRB), are rarely high on institutions list of concerns. My own office is fortunate enough to have a director that kicks ass and has seriously transformed the quality, culture, and speed of my IRB, but my ...

With the research question identified, the next step for any study that goes beyond being purely descriptive is to identify collaborators including a statistician or someone knowledgeable about statistics to assist with the study design and planning. Failure to have adequate statistical input at the outset is amongst the most common reasons for studies being deferred rather than approved.. Before the details are finalized, it is best to create a 3 - 5 page high-level concept protocol or synopsis that includes the key design elements. The synopsis and ultimately the final protocol, need to follow the basic precepts for the type of research design that is chosen. While it may seem an obvious step, the majority of protocols submitted to the IRB do not have a succinct summary of the research design. After all collaborators have agreed on the concept protocol, the feasibility of the resulting study needs to be assessed. Over half of all studies fail to meet their enrollment timelines. Are there ...
Whilst most clinical trials involve some risk, researchers must follow strict scientific guidelines and ethical and legal codes to ensure that you are protected. Studies need to be approved by an Independent Ethics Committee (IEC) or Institutional Review Board (IRB), or an equivalent, depending upon the regulations of the country where the trial is being carried out. This committee - made up of scientists, doctors, and other people from the local community (e.g., consumer representative, ethics expert) - reviews each study to see that it is designed to protect the patient and to ensure that the benefits of the study outweigh the risks. Each trial must meet the Good Clinical Practice (GCP) standard. GCP is an ethical and scientific quality standard that ensures that the rights, safety and well being of study participants are protected.. ...

Investigational VariZIG is produced by Cangene Corporation (Winnipeg, Canada) and is distributed by FFF Enterprises (Temecula, California). An expanded access protocol under the IND application enables use of investigational VariZIG for patients who meet the protocols enrollment criteria and who choose to participate. The expanded access protocol has received central institutional review board (IRB) approval. With this central IRB review and approval, FDA does not require an additional approval by the IRB at the treatment site. However, some institutions might require that the institutions IRB be notified before the institution or its physicians participate in a study reviewed by a central IRB. In such cases, notification and any local IRB review may take place before a patient who needs the investigational product is identified. However, if a patient who needs the investigational product is identified before any required local IRB review has taken place, the investigational product may be ...

Written informed consent was obtained from the parents and verbal consent from the children. Any child who had a chronic medical disorder or who was taking drugs known to affect the BMD was excluded.. Height was measured to the nearest millimetre using a wall mounted height measuring tape (Raven Equipment, Great Dunmow, Essex). Each child was weighed to the nearest 0.5 kg while wearing their school uniform without shoes or socks. Pubertal assessment was not allowed by the medical research ethics committees.. The BUA (dB/MHz), which reflects the frequency dependence of ultrasound attenuation in the frequency range 200-600 kHz, was measured in triplicate at the left calcaneum of the subjects using the ...
All investigators (faculty, staff, and students) conducting research that involves human subjects must complete the necessary training prior to submitting their IRB proposals. Ideally this should occur prior to preparing your application as it will provide useful information that can inform the design of your research study. CITI Programs Human Subjects Research (HSR) series covers the historical development of human subject protections, as well as current information on regulatory and ethical issues. It consists of a series of modules.. Beginning 9/1/16, all new IRB applications will require CITI training of all investigators conducting research that involves human subjects. This includes faculty researchers, student researchers, and faculty mentoring both undergraduate and graduate student research projects..

a) In addition to the determinations required under other applicable sections of this subpart, the IRB shall determine that adequate provisions are made for soliciting the assent of the children, when in the judgment of the IRB the children are capable of providing assent. In determining whether children are capable of assenting, the IRB shall take into account the ages, maturity, and psychological state of the children involved. This judgment may be made for all children to be involved in research under a particular protocol, or for each child, as the IRB deems appropriate. If the IRB determines that the capability of some or all of the children is so limited that they cannot reasonably be consulted or that the intervention or procedure involved in the research holds out a prospect of direct benefit that is important to the health or well-being of the children and is available only in the context of the research, the assent of the children is not a necessary condition for proceeding with the ...
Objectives: To use multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to test the hypothesis that hypertensives would have higher retrograde venous blood flow (RVBF) in the internal jugular veins (IJV) vs. normotensives, and that this would inversely correlate with arterial inflow and gray matter, white matter, and cerebrospinal fluid volumes. Methods: Following local institutional review board approval and written consent, a prospective observational 3-T MRI study of 42 hypertensive patients (53 ± 2 years, BMI 28.2 ± 0.6 kg/m2, ambulatory daytime systolic BP 148 ± 2 mmHg, ambulatory daytime diastolic BP 101 ± 2 mmHg) and 35 normotensive patients (48 ± 2 years, BMI 25.2 ± 0.8 kg/m2, ambulatory daytime systolic BP 119 ± 3 mmHg, ambulatory daytime diastolic BP 90 ± 2 mmHg) was performed. Phase contrast imaging calculated percentage retrograde venous blood flow (%RVBF), brain segmentation estimated regional brain volumes from 3D T1-weighted images, and pseudo-continuous arterial spin ...
Basic biomedical research and clinical trials have been the means of understanding disease and discovery of effective treatments. While research science is portrayed as an objective, empirical field, it too is confronted with specific ethical issues and dilemmas. Yet medical and scientific research at times in its history has not always reflected a genuine concern for the principled research and particularly a commitment to the protection of human subjects. Building on such foundation documents as the Nuremberg Code, the Declaration of Helsinki, and the Belmont Report, modern research ethics emphasizes the importance of human subjects research protections in the an increasingly complex research environment spanning all areas of biomedical and biotechnological research and beyond, as well as the increasingly international and global nature of such research endeavors. Relevant issues to research ethics include among others: global and national governance, privacy, scientific integrity, ...

The Medical Sciences IDREC (MS IDREC) utilise a number of CUREC Approved Procedures, which are essentially documents approved by CUREC for how to approach certain types of study or intervention. The main function of such Procedures is to reduce the need for researchers to apply for ethical review using a full CUREC 2 application form. By agreeing to conduct research within the scope of a CUREC-approved procedure, researchers may apply for ethical review and approval using the process for lower-risk research. The Central University Research Ethics Committee (CUREC) has recently approved revisions to several Approved Procedures (see https://researchsupport.admin.ox.ac.uk/governance/ethics/resources/ap). If you are a researcher who utilises any of the above CUREC Approved Procedures as part of an ethically-approved project, it is important that you read the new document to ensure you can still meet with requirements. In particular, your attention is drawn to the following changes: Approved ...
Perhaps Hwang and his team are a bit reluctant because they already know beforehand that it is physically and scientifically impossible that these stem cells from cloned human embryos really match the patients into whom they were injected? What about addressing the other ethical requirements of the Declaration of Helsinki and the Nuremberg Code - e.g., the fact that patients should understand that the research being performed is not standard medical care, that the good of the patient involved outweighs that of society or science, that patients must give ethically and legally valid informed consent to participate, as well as various other ethical obligations of others directly complicit in this research. One wonders why the international press doesnt include some of these international research ethics requirements in their investigative reporting.

A double-blind randomised controlled trial was conducted. The primary outcome was pain score measured on a 100-mm visual analogue scale (VAS), where 0 mm represented no pain and 100 mm represented worst pain. The sample size calculation in this trial was identical to one used in a previous trial on ropivacaine instillation following laparoscopic sterilisation3 where pain scores were assessed by a similar VAS. Assuming a SD of 17 mm, a total of 74 women were required (37 in each group) in order to provide 80% power at the 5% level of significance in terms of detecting a difference of 13-mm difference in pain scores on a 100-mm VAS. Allowing for a 10% loss to follow up, we aimed to recruit 85 women. Ethics approval was obtained from the Grampian Research Ethics Committee. Women listed for diagnostic L & D test as a part of their fertility investigations from September 2002 to May 2005 were invited to participate in the trial. Women with a known allergy to amide local anaesthetic agents ...
Cell culture. One well-differentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell line (CNE-1), three poorly differentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell lines (CNE-2, C666, and SUNE-1), and two SUNE-1 subclones (6-10B and 5-8F) were maintained in our laboratory. These four nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell lines and two subclones of SUNE-1 were cultured in DMEM supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum. Primary cultures of NPECs were established as described previously ( 23). Briefly, fresh biopsies of the nasopharynx, which were pathologically exclusive of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, were collected from the Department of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, Cancer Center, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangdong, China, and each sample was divided into two parts. One part was directly cultured for the primary epithelial cells. The other part was fixed in formaldehyde and embedded in paraffin. Prior consent of the patients and approval from the research ethics committee were obtained for the use of these surgical materials. To ...

Members of the cohort were born during the week 3-9 March 1958.5 Between 1999 and 2000, 96 cohort members reported having diabetes (controlled by diet or tablets). We excluded participants with other types of diabetes (n=100).. Of the 11 276 participants contacted at age 41 years, 3777 mothers and 4364 fathers gave information on the birth characteristics for at least one (range 1-9) singleton liveborn child. A total of 34 men with diabetes had had children, and 24 women had become diabetic after childbirth. We used random effects models on birth weight (adjusted for gestational age) to allow for dependence between a parents subsequent births. North Thames Multicentre Research Ethics Committee approved the 41 year survey.. The offspring of the fathers with diabetes weighed on average less by a difference of −186 g (95% confidence interval −330 g to −44 g) than other children (figure). Fathers adult height or social class did not explain the association between a fathers diabetes and the ...
BACKGROUND Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the major cause of blindness among working age adults. The aim of the study was to investigate risk factors for development of DR. METHODS A case-control study was performed based on data from 240 individuals (80 cases and 160 controls) attending the Outpatient Specialty Clinic of the University of South Santa Catarina (UNISUL), between Mar/2010 and May/2014. Data collection occurred through review of medical charts for presence or absence of DR, determined by an ophthalmologist. Study protocol included demographic characteristics, metabolic control, diabetes mellitus (DM) profile and comorbidities. Statistical analysis used Chi square test for qualitative variables and multivariate logistic regression analysis to select independent variables (SPSS®18.0 software). Odds ratio (OR) was used as measure of association. The study was approved by research ethics committee of UNISUL. RESULTS Mean age of group case was 59.5 years with a slight female predominance.
