 Allocate screened volunteers to another BE project [Regulatives / Guidelines]

Hi there,

I have a question that still have noone can give a clear answer.

Thing is..volunteers have passed consent and screening process for a particular project, let's say project A but this project has cancelled later because the client cannot provide the test and reference products on time before start dosing. The plan will be delay more than a month.

Question is.. Can we allocate these screened volunteers to another project Project B with re-consent process? Is there regulation for this?

Thanks a million!

Hi TK,

In my opinion this should be fully OK with a re-consent, assuming the in-ex criteria are the same. I do not know of any guidance that addresses this situation specifically, but of course there could be local regs in place which I don't know about.

I believe your way forward is even the ethical one as you will need less "total screening" and needlepricks and pain and fuss. There is as I see it no particular added risk to the subjects, the change in orientation does not per se affect their rights or the expected outcome. A perspective: In other countries they make extensive use of screening IC+study IC. That means they have a bunch of volunteers who are screened, and whose screening status is valid for a month or more, and can be ad-hoc allocated to studies as appropriate.

So, I'd say go ahead.

The Sponsor on the other hand, has a little issue that could appropriately be addressed with some RCA and CAPA work, perhaps.

Dear ElMaestro,

Thank you so much for your answer. I will discuss with my team and further ask Thai regulatory authorities.
