Course Description

The FDA recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic may impact the conduct of clinical trials of medical products.  Challenges may arise, for example, from quarantines, site closures, travel limitations, interruptions to the supply chain for the investigational product, or other considerations if site personnel or trial subjects become infected with COVID-19. These challenges may lead to difficulties in meeting protocol-specified procedures, including administering or using the investigational product or adhering to protocol-mandated visits and laboratory/diagnostic testing. The FDA is aware that protocol modifications may be required, and that there may be unavoidable protocol deviations due to COVID-19. This web seminar will discuss the recent FDA guidance for Industry, Investigators and Institutional  Review Boards, Conduct of Clinical Trials of Medicinal Products during the COVID-19 Pandemic issued March 2020, which outlines considerations to assist sponsors in assuring the safety of trial participants, maintaining compliance with good clinical practice and minimizing risks to trial integrity.
