## Can of worms [Regulatives / Guidelines]

Hi jag,

I agree with Helmut.
My top three for scientific advice is Sweden, Sweden, and Sweden.
You will of course not fall for the temptation to take sc. advice in the countries which are the most attractive business-wise.

It will likely be a 10(3). This is Europe, so if the study is conducted here you will be facing an IEC, not IRB, technically. And note that the IEC may be a bottle-neck. They can say no, even if the authority will say yes.

Try and discuss the case with different CROs, I think you find that several of them (in EU their numbers are limited) have been in situation before and have been discussing the matter with other sponsors + authorities as well as with IECs.
What are you actually going to measure?

This week's list of things I absolutely detest: Corona virus, the which function in R, WIA-WIA interfaces for scanning under Windows 10, the Bee Gees, the smell of my fridge.

Best regards,
