  50. 50. Main advantages of the application<br />19<br />
  51. 51. Applicable Clinical Trials<br />…generally include interventional studies (with one or more arms) of drugs, biological products, or devices that are subject to FDA regulation, <br />meaning that the trial has one or more sites in the U.S, involves a drug, biologic, or device that is manufactured in the US (or its territories), or is conducted under an investigational new drug application (IND) or investigational device exemption (IDE)<br />20<br />
  52. 52. Delayed Submission of Results <br />FDAAA allows for Delayed Submission of Results via:<br /><ul><li>Certification; or
  53. 53. Request for Extension</li></ul>Certification<br />A responsible party may submit a certification for delayed submission of results information for an applicable clinical trial that is: <br /><ul><li>Completed before the drug or device is initially approved, licensed, or cleared by the FDA ("seeking initial approval"), or
  54. 54. Studying a new use of an FDA-approved drug or device (i.e., a use not included in the labeling) for which the manufacturer of a drug or device is the sponsor of the trial and has filed or will file within a year an application to the FDA for approval or clearance of that use ("seeking approval for a new use") </li></ul>Sept 10, 2010<br />Confidential - 180 Global Consulting, LLC<br />21<br />
  55. 55. Delayed Submission of Results <br />Request for Extension<br />Allows the Director of NIH to provide an extension of the deadline for submission of results information for an applicable clinical trial if the responsible party submits a written request that demonstrates good cause for the extension and provides an estimate of the date on which the results information will be submitted. <br />When: not later than one (1) year after the earlier of the estimated or actual completion date (PCD) of the trial<br />Sept 10, 2010<br />Confidential - 180 Global Consulting, LLC<br />22<br />

  57. 57. Results Disclosure Process<br />24<br />1-3 cycles<br />
  58. 58. Entering Results in PRS<br />Option 1 – Manual data entry directly in the PRS system<br />Test – https://prstest.nlm.nih.gov<br />Live – https://register.clinicaltrials.gov<br />Option 2 – xml upload using the PRS upload function<br />You must first…<br />Request PRS login account as administrator<br />Protocol must have NCT # for results entry (except in PRS Test system)<br />25<br />
  59. 59. Helpful Hints<br />26<br /><ul><li>Spell out term when first used, acronym in parentheses
  60. 60. Use precise language
  61. 61. Do not use “proportion” unless providing a ratio
  62. 62. Do not use “rate" unless providing a quantity in relation to another unit (e.g., participants per unit time)
  63. 63. If simply reporting the number of participants, use “number” for Measure Type
  64. 64. In general, spell out symbols such as –
  65. 65. “Percentage” for “%” , “Number” for “#”
  66. 66. For measures obtained using a scale -
  67. 67. Name of scale is provided in “Measure Title.”
  68. 68. Range and direction of scores (0 = worst; 10 = best) are indicated in “Measure Description.”
  69. 69. “Unit of Measure” is “units on a scale” if no other unit</li></li></ul><li>ClinicalTrials.gov Results Posted*(2009 vs 2010)<br />27<br />* Data provided by Clinicaltrials.gov <br />As of September 2010 – over 95,000 trials registered on Clincaltrials.gov<br />
  70. 70. What’s new in the Clinicaltrials.gov PRS?<br />New Results Outcome Measure Fields (Sept. 1)<br />Optional "Type of Units Analyzed" and "Number of Units Analyzed" (per arm/group) for an outcome measure. Use these new fields when the basis for outcome measure analysis is not participants.<br />Minor Results Display Changes (Sept. 1)<br />In the Results Participant Flow section, the total for all Arm/Groups (i.e. sum per row) is automatically computed and displayed for each Milestone and "Reason Not Completed". <br />A new expanded adverse events display is available on the "Results Overview" screen<br />28<br />
  71. 71. What’s on the Horizon?<br />Expanded Results by Rulemaking<br />FDAAA requires NIH to issue regulations by 27 September 2010 expanding the Registry and Results Data Bank<br />Issues to be addressed in the rulemaking …<br />1) Inclusion of results for “unapproved products”<br />2) Technical and non-technical summaries <br />3) Copy of “full” protocol when results are submitted<br />4) Increasing the timeline for submitting results from 12 to 18 months after the earlier of the estimated completion date of the trial or the actual date of completion<br />29<br />
