The Data and Safety Monitoring Plan, adopted by the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute originally in 2002 and revised repeatedly throughout the grant period, ensures that all clinical research conducted or coordinated by the Cancer Center is scientifically well designed, responsibly managed, appropriately reported, and that it protects the rights and welfare of human participants. The institutional plan conforms to NIH and NCI policies and guidelines regarding data and safety monitoring. The methodology and amount of monitoring required are dictated by the degree of risk involved to the individual patients and the complexity of the clinical research. Because the specific types of monitoring and reporting needed vary by the nature of the individual trial, the responsibility for ensuring that monitoring is appropriate, timely, and effective encompasses a number of Cancer Center individuals and groups. The Associate Center Director for Clinical Investigations has overall responsibility for data and safety monitoring, and the Protocol Monitoring Committee (PMC) is the Institution's venue for review of all monitoring reports. The PMC has a separate and distinct function from the Scientific Review Committee and the IRB. Its primary tasks are to: ? Assess safety by reviewing severe adverse event reports from investigator-initiated studies and monitor their timely and appropriate reports to oversight agencies (such as the IRB, FDA, or NCI). ? Review audits of investigator-initiated clinical trials ? Review interim data and safety reports from investigator-initiated studies ? Review the interim and final reports from the external Data Safety and Monitoring Board The Protocol Monitoring Committee (PMC), chaired by Scott Antonia, MD, PhD, includes members from a variety of the Cancer Center's clinical and scientific programs who have extensive experience with clinical research. The DSM requests CCSG Support of $72,617 for support of Protocol Monitoring Committee activities.
