Pediatric Central IRB

 PedCIRB Initiative

Barry Anderson, MD, PhD
National Cancer Institute
        Why a Central IRB?
  NCI developed a Central IRB model
  in consultation with OHRP because:
• IRBs are forced to “review too much, too
  quickly, with too little expertise”
• IRB reviews of large, multicenter clinical
  trials result in duplication of effort and
• For Peds Oncology lack of expertise may
  compromise patient protection
                        Christian, M., NEJM (2000)
What does the PedCIRB do?
1.   COG pilot, phase 2 and phase 3 protocols submitted
     for PedCIRB review after CTEP approval

2.   Primary reviewer assigned and full Board review
     occurs (meet ~q2 weeks)

3.   Board votes to approve, approve with modifications,
     table, or disapprove

4.   NCI-CTEP signs off on PedCIRB approved version of

5.   COG activates the protocol group-wide
     What does your IRB do?
1. CRA/IRB office downloads Facilitated Review
   Packet: CIRB's primary reviews, minutes,
   notification letters, and any other
   correspondence + application form

2. “Facilitated reviewer” or IRB subcommittee
   evaluates packet materials to consider local
   concerns and decide whether to accept CIRB
   Review, protocol and informed consent
      Modifications for local consent document permitted
 Meets OHRP requirement
"…an institution relying upon another
institution's IRB has a responsibility to
ensure that the particular characteristics of
its local research context are considered
through subsequent review by appropriate
designated institutional officials, such as
the Chairperson and/or other members of
its local IRB."
      What does your IRB do?
3. If CIRB review accepted, then CIRB is the IRB of
  •   initial, amendment and continuing reviews
  •   adverse event reviews
  •   DSMB report review

4. Your local IRB is responsible for…
  •   ongoing consideration of local context
  •   oversight of local performance for the protocol
  •   reviews local adverse events
       What do you NOT do?
1. Spend hours preparing protocol application
   forms for your IRB

2. Wait weeks/months for the next available Full
   Board Review slot on the IRB agenda

3. Hear complaints from the IRB chair that those
   *#!$@! COG protocols are too complicated and
   take up too much IRB time
 How does the local IRB stay
 in the loop about the study?
• Local IRB receives:
  –   Reports about adverse events;
  –   Changes to the protocol and consents;
  –   Continuations, suspensions, closures
  –   Final results
• NCI also posts on CIRB web site for local
  site review/download.
