  1. My Sponsor Wants to Know if I Can Use a Central IRB An Introduction to Using a Central/Commercial IRB at MSSM

  2. When Can I Use a Commercial IRB? • A multi-site clinical trial (Phase II-IV or medical device) • The protocol was written by a pharmaceutical or device company • The company that rote the protocol holds the IND or IDE • The research has not been submitted to MSSM’s IRB previously • MSSM does not have oversight over other sites (not coordinating center, not the main study PI)

  3. Commercial IRBs* that MSSM has contractual agreements with: • Quorum Review • Schulman Associates • Western IRB (WIRB) • If you wish to use a different commercial IRB, contact the PPHS office to discuss. Negotiating a contract with a commercial IRB takes time. * Listed in alphabetical order

  4. What Do I Need to Do for MSSM? • Financial Interest in research disclosures through Sinai Central • PPHS FORM- HRP-229A – Request to Rely on an External IRB • GCO (and contract negotiation) • IDS review, if applicable • Device review through Inna Bender, if applicable • Any other institutional requirements (such as Radiation Safety Committee review)

  5. What is the involvement of the PPHS? • The PPHS office will confirm eligibility to use commercial IRB, and will provide the PI with the commercial IRB-required sign off to proceed within 2 business days • The PPHS review will: • Confirm education requirements have been met • Confirm other required in-house submissions have been made • Coordinate the review process (get ICF to the Contracts Specialist; get COI management plan to the commercial IRB when needed, etc.) • Work with the commercial IRB and Sponsor/CRO to negotiate consent/HIPAA language • Serve as MSSM Liaison to the commercial IRB • The PPHS charges a one-time administrative fee of $575 for research that will use a commercial IRB

  6. Basic Information on submitting to the commercial IRB:(once you have the PPHS-signed document to proceed) • Each commercial IRB requires sign-off from the PPHS prior to submission • Some Sponsors/CROs will submit on your behalf – find out who will ultimately make the submission • Each commercial IRB website features an area to download forms and an online submission system with smart forms • Each commercial IRB will accept an online submission or an email (with PDF file forms) • A few basic screenshots for each site follow

  7. Basic Tips while completing the commercial IRB forms to add a site • For the question about a local IRB –answer “Yes” • For the question about using the model consent form –answer “Yes” (MSSM has negotiated site-specific consent/HIPAA language in place)

  8. After Initial Approval from the commercial IRB: • You will still need to make annual submissions to the GCO and submit Financial Interest in research disclosure forms through Sinai Central
