The proponent must notify the FDI amendment no later than 5 business days after the change. Changes to a clinical protocol are considered to have occurred when an investigator is informed by the proponent that the amendment must be implemented in the minutes or, for sponsorship review studies, when a test proponent includes the change in the minutes. These indications should be identified as «reference to FDI changes.» The FDA has ultimate authority to determine whether a device study represents a «significant risk» or a «non-significant risk.» If the FDA disagrees with the IRB`s decision that a study of the device represents a «non-significant risk,» an Investigational Device Exemption (Ided) application must be submitted to the FDA before the device is used in a clinical trial. When a sponsor/examiner considers a device to be an SR and the FDA submits an SR(IDE), the FDA may disagree and consider the device to be a «non-significant risk.» In this case, the FDA refers the IDE application with the recommendation to submit the device to the IRB as a «non-significant risk.» All IRB requirements for human research apply to any medical device research study conducted at Hopkins, regardless of whether or not researchers seek to deviate from FDI requirements. On the cover, the repository must be identified as «Original Investigational Device Exemption Application Application Application» and the sponsor should sign the page. To make verification easier, also insert a table of materials for application. The FDI must be preceded by a cover letter. The letter should contain a brief snapshot of the project. In particular, the name and manufacturer of the device, the intended use of the device, The investigator`s name, including contact information plus a secondary contact, refers to additional information such as a pre-submission meeting (formerly called pre-IDE pre-meeting) or previous conferences with the FDA, if a waiver of FDI requirements is requested and justified and if there are existing reference files for the device to which the manufacturer gives access (a letter from the manufacturer). If not, please note that the study uses a commercial device and requires the transmission of manufacturing data. The registration requirements of Public Health Act 110-85 provide that tests of controlled devices with health results are accompanied by a registration in the protocol registration system (clinicaltrials.gov), with the exception of small feasibility studies. (23) University Health Centre investigators should also be aware that the approval of the International Committee of Medical Journal Publishers requires a forward-looking registration of all interventional clinical trials, including devices, for all publications resulting from the clinical examination. Note that registration must be completed before you can register for a topic.
(24) Clinical investigators must meet regulatory requirements to be able to conduct research with products submitted to the FDA. Many researchers believe that these requirements are too intimidating to attempt important and innovative studies.
