Global Focus: Clinical Trials in India – Food and Drug Law Institute (FDLI)
Conflicts of interest There are no conflicts of interest. Academicians, however, also carry out their own research and these studies are called as ‘Investigator initiated studies’ IISs. Over the past two decades, India has been making efforts to streamline and harmonize its regulations in the biomedical sector to international best practices.
A recent regulatory change guuidelines respect to IISs is guidwlines academicians who carry out trials with ‘new drugs’ no longer need approval from the DCGI for the conduct of the trial and IEC guidelinse would suffice. Therefore preparedness of the study site at all times must be ensured. The amendments to the DCR provided teeth for the licensing authority, empowering it to, inter alia, suspend or cancel a CT after issuing a warning letter, or ban the sponsor or its representative from conducting any future clinical trial in India, or both.
These studies called clinical trials or regulatory studies are conducted with the academician as the principal investigator largely in academic centres. The control of the study including its conception, conduct and analysis remains exclusively with gudelines investigator in these studies and would need a clear memorandum of understanding with the industry funder.
Compensation in a clinical trial is needed both when death occurs or when there is clinical trial-related injury. The ECs now have a larger than ever onus need to appreciate and understand risk — benefit and to empower themselves through repeated training and use of standard operating procedures given that it is known that the quality of IEC review across the country remains variable.
Ddcgi of Ethics Committees. Since clinical trial related injury or death is equally possible both with pharmaceutical industry and investigator-initiated academic studies, budgetary provisions need to be in place at the institutional level for the medical management of adverse events [AEs], SAEs and provision of insurance to trial participants. For institutes that do not have them, this would be a good committee to constitute. Site preparedness rule DAC Understand that the fcgi can inspect the site at any time and that he can cancel the trial permission and discontinue the study.
Medical care to be provided as long as required and a lumpsum amount to be kept in a fixed deposit that would bring in a monthly interest equal to half of the minimum wage of an unskilled worker in Delhi. Understand that compensation for trial related death and injury is now required and the implications of compensation particularly when academic studies with ‘new drugs’ are carried out Compensation in a clinical trial is needed both when death occurs or when there is clinical trial-related injury.
Regulatory requirements for clinical trials in India: What academicians need to know
In these IISs, he dons the dual mantle of an investigator and ‘sponsor’ and thus directly becomes responsible for ensuring regulatory compliance. In the event that the IEC feels that there could be a guidelijes overlap between the academic and regulatory purposes of the trial, they should notify the office of the DCGI. This is provided that these studies are not intended for generating data to make a regulatory submission.
The clinical pharmacological including pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic effects. Chapter VII of this notification states that clinical trials with the former need both IEC and DCGI approval, while academic studies [studies guidelibes intended guidelinws manufacturing or marketing the device] with the latter, need only IEC approval.
How to improve R and D productivity: The academician forms the backbone of any medical college, hospital or university and shoulders the quadruple responsibilities of patient care, teaching, administration and research.
The draft Rules are pending finalization. The Indian Council of Medical Research ICMR is the apex body that is gidelines for the formulation, coordination and promotion of biomedical research.
Addressing SAEs and compensation: Clinical Trials Registry — India. In and there was further decline in CTs in India because international sponsors viewed frequent regulatory changes as unpredictable and non-transparent. Academic research, clinical trials, compliance, India, regulations.
National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The conduct of CTs in India is currently governed by the following regulations: Audio-visual Recording of Informed Consent of Process. Table 1 Evolution guiidelines regulatory changes in India — as relevant to clinical trials. Registration of Ethics Committees that approve studies Rule DD [ 15 ] Investigators and Administrators of Academic Institutes should ensure that their Institutional Ethics Committees IECs are registered with the central licensing authority and the registration renewed at the end of 3 years.
Compensation for an SAE leading to life-threatening disease: For the first time, there is a proposal to include provisions on post-trial access to be provided by the sponsor to CT subjects cost-free if the CT is for an indication for which no alternative therapy exists and the investigational new drug or new drug has been found to be beneficial to the trial subject by the investigator. Regulatory environment for clinical research: Table 2 covers must know and good to know aspects of clinical trial research.
For trials that involve vulnerable participants children or mentally challenged patients for example and involve a new chemical entity or a new molecular entity, the investigators in addition have to ensure audio visual recording of the informed consent process gazette notification dated 19 th November, In addition, several pharmaceutical companies in the country also fund investigator initiated research. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Institutional Ethics Committees function according to standard operating procedures [SOPS] that are usually available on their websites.
Report serious adverse events that occur during a clinical trial An SAE is defined as an untoward medical occurrence during a clinical trial that is associated with death, in patient hospitalisation if the study was done on outpatient basisprolongation of hospitalisation if the study was conducted on in-patient basispersistent or significant disability or incapacity, a congenital anomaly or birth defect or is otherwise life-threatening.
Other major provisions included timely reporting of serious adverse events, video recording of the informed consent process, and mandatory registration of ethics committees. Drugs and Cosmetics Act.
Regulatory requirements for clinical trials in India: What academicians need to know
Statement on publishing clinical trials in Indian biomedical journals. B – Conduct of the clinical trial Conduct of the clinical trial The investigator must guixelines that clinical trials are conducted as per the rules outlined below[ 13 ] In compliance with an EC and a DCGI approved protocol.
This case is still pending disposition. These issues were highly publicized by NGOs and the media and involved parliamentary hearings. The formulae for compensation for both are described below.
Of these, research, though long and difficult, is extremely fulfilling. For example, a requirement to obtain video-recorded consent from all human subjects gidelines modified to apply only to vulnerable populations, 3 the rule limiting investigators to only three trials was revoked, and the requirement for institutional ethics committee IEC permission for the addition of new trial sites or guieelines was also eliminated.
The funding from the industry could be by way of provision of drug supplies or monetary support or both. Additional reforms are in the pipeline. Do clinical trials conducted in India match its healthcare needs?
