                                 REQUEST FOR REVIEW OF INVESTIGATION
                                   INVOLVING USE OF HUMAN SUBJECTS

The human subjects regulations (45 CFR Part 46) define research as “a systematic investigation, including
research development, testing, and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge” [45
CFR 46.102(d)]. A human subject is “a living individual about whom an investigator (whether professional or
student) conducting research obtains (1) data through intervention or interaction with the individual or (2)
identifiable private information” [45 CFR 46.102(f)].

Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) and federal policies require review of each protocol by the WCMC’s IRB
with respect to the: 1) Rights and welfare of subjects; 2) adequacy of methods used to secure informed consent;
and 3) risk and potential benefits of the research to the subject. Read these instructions carefully and then type and
complete each item. If an item is not applicable, indicate this by "NA" DO NOT leave anything blank; Obtain
required signatures. The completed application and required attachments must be submitted as a single PDF file
bookmarked via email to submit2IRB@med.cornell.edu.

For the following questions, state concisely, and in language that can be understood by a non-scientist, the
design, aims and specific objectives of the research, and the procedures to be used to accomplish these aims.
Since the Board includes lay persons, this non-technical research plan must avoid or clearly explain highly
technical language. Describe what will happen to subjects and what they will be expected to do. State specific
interventions and procedures which would not otherwise be performed for your intended subject population except
for the purposes of this study, as well as any standard of care procedures that would be done as part of the research.
Do not include the technical summary from the NIH grant or sponsor’s protocol as this will unnecessarily
slow the approval process.
A1. Study Design (For example, the hypothesis, research question, standard and experimental procedures, special
     or unusual equipment of procedures.) Include specifics on all study interventions and their frequency (e.g.,
     administration of study drug, surgical intervention, blood draws, clinical assessments, etc)

 ___________________ H. DRUG OR BIOLOGICAL PRODUCT____________________________

 Most investigations of drugs or biologic products require submission of an Investigational New Drug (IND).
 Exceptions are some investigations of already approved drugs or biologics, some in vitro diagnostic products that
 are regulated as drugs or biologics, and some bioavailability or bioequivalence studies.
 ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELOW TO PROVIDE THE IND INFORMATION OR TO DETERMINE IF AN
 IND IS NEEDED FOR THIS STUDY. Some of the questions require the exercise of scientific/medical judgment.
 When judgment is required to answer a question, space is provided for you to explain how you reached your
 conclusion. This information will enable the IRB to review your determination about the need for an IND.
 FDA will not accept an IND for an exempt investigation (ref. §312.2(b)(4)). However, there is no penalty
 associated with the submission of an unnecessary IND.


H1. Will any drugs, biological agents, or test articles (not including investigational devices) be administered

2. NEONATES

         For the purpose of human subject protection regulations, newborns are considered neonates until they are
         determined to be viable. The regulations applicable to pediatric subjects would then apply. This section
         applies to neonates of uncertain viability and nonviable neonates.

         When appropriate, have preclinical and clinical studies been conducted and have they provided data for
         assessing potential risks to neonates: ____ Yes        ____ No

         The PI must agree that individuals engaged in the research will have no part in determining the viability
         of the neonate. ______ PI agrees         ______ PI does not agree

(a) Neonates of uncertain viability.
       To be approved, either:

         The research must hold out the prospect of enhancing the probability of survival of the neonate to the
         point of viability and any risk is the least possible for achieving that objective. Please justify:




          OR

         The purpose of the research is the development of important biomedical knowledge which cannot be
         obtained by other means and there will be no added risk to the neonate resulting from the research. Please
         justify:




Revised3-2012                                                                                         Page 30 of 36
Consent of either parent of the neonate of uncertain viability is required, or, if neither is able to consent, of the
legally authorized representative of either parent. Consent of the father or his representative is not required if the
pregnancy resulted from rape or incest.

(b) Nonviable neonates. After delivery, nonviable neonates may not be involved in research unless,

         ______ Vital functions of the neonate will not be artificially maintained,
         ______ The research will not terminate the heartbeat or respiration of the neonate,
         ______ There will be no added risk to the neonate resulting from the research, and
         ______ The purpose of the research is the development of important biomedical knowledge that cannot
                be obtained by other means.
Consent of both parents of the nonviable neonate is required, unless either parent is unable to consent due to
unavailability, incompetence or incapacity. The consent of the father is not needed if the pregnancy resulted from
rape or incest. Consent of a legally authorized representative of either or both parents is not adequate.

Does this study involve the enrollment of Prisoners

                           No (Please move to Section M)

                           Yes (Please answer all of the questions below)




Because prisoners may be under constraints because of their incarceration which could affect their ability to make
a truly voluntary and uncoerced decision about whether or not to participate as subjects in research, the federal
regulations provide additional safeguards for the protection of prisoners as human subjects in research.


The IRB can only approve research that falls into one of the following categories and which has been approved by
the Secretary of HHS after consultation with a panel of experts.

 Please check the one that applies and justify the research:

____     Cause and Effect: Study of the possible causes, effects, and processes of incarceration and of criminal
         behavior and presents no more than a minimal risk. Please justify:

                                      SECTION M. INFORMED CONSENT

Informed consent is necessary for all research involving human subjects and must be documented. The investigator
may determine which method of obtaining informed consent would best serve the interest of the subject population,
but the Board reserves the right to require alternative or more stringent means of securing consent. Recruitment of
subjects unable to give personal consent for reasons of age, mental state, legal or other such status, requires that
consent or assent be secured from parents or a legally authorized representative.

If a legally authorized representative will be used, please provide justification (in M1 below) to conduct
research on a subject unable to consent for him or herself. Include information about who will make the
determination that the subject does not have the capacity to give consent, how the capacity to give consent
will be determined and who will be allowed to be a legally authorized representative and consent for the
subject.

 1. .   Describe procedures used to obtain informed consent (and minor assent, if applicable), including how and where
        informed consent (and assent, if applicable) will be obtained and what measures will be taken to ensure
        subject’s understanding of the protocol is consistent with the protocol as written. If non-English speaking
        subjects will be enrolled, please describe the consenting process and the use of a translator (Please go to our
        website at http://weill.cornell.edu/research/rea_com/ins_rev_boa.html for the WCMC policy on consenting
        non-English Speaking subjects). If you are requesting a waiver of informed consent, or an alteration in the
        documentation of informed consent (i.e., oral consent), please justify.




 2      Will you obtain written consent?         Yes         No
          NOTE: This is always required when there is a definite physical, social, or psychological risk to the subject.
          The document must embody all of the basic elements of informed consent. These are contained in the template
          IRB Consent Form.
          The Consent Form must be completed and attached and easily understood by a lay person.


 3.     Will you obtain only oral consent?       Yes         No
          NOTE: Oral consent may be sufficient in the case of studies that the only record linking the subject and the
          research would be the consent document and the principal risk would be potential harm resulting from
          a breach of confidentiality or that the studies present no more than minimal risk to the subject and involves
          no procedures for which written consent is normally required outside of the research context.Subject
         must be informed of applicable basic elements of consent. No signed document is necessary on the part of the
         subject, but(1) a sample oral consent script that includes information to be imparted to the subject must be
         submitted and approved by the Board; and (2)Documentation confirming that informed consent was obtained
         from each subject must still be maintained in your research records. Please note that this method of obtaining
         consent is approved ONLY for no more than minimal risk studies.
        Sample documentation is attached:        Yes          No


 4.     Will you use a standard hospital consent form?       Yes         No

         NOTE: Special written research consent form is not required for use of unidentified surgical waste tissues, or
         autopsy specimens including specimens from Special Subject Populations (i.e. fetuses, minors, pregnant women,
         prisoners or the mentally disabled), provided that the Tissue Submission policy has been followed and
         completed satisfactorily and appropriate approval from the Department of Pathology has been obtained. The
         standard hospital form, which clearly permits use of the tissue or fluid for research MUST BE ATTACHED
         (Form #45350 for surgery, or Form #41160 for autopsy specimens).
