COVID-19 FDA Response: Site Management And Monitoring

Meeting

In the FDA Guidance on conduct of clinical trials of medical products during the COVID-19 pandemic, released initially on March 18th and updated on March 27th and April 2nd (with questions and answers), FDA addresses questions related to delays in on-site monitoring during the COVID-19 pandemic and recognizes access to trial sites may be limited or not available. With a focus on participant safety and trial data quality and integrity, the FDA expectation is that sponsors will identify alternative approaches to on-site monitoring and document these in updates to the Clinical Monitoring Plan. Some alternative approaches include enhanced centralized monitoring and off-site (remote) monitoring: review of subject status, data entry and query resolution, training, regulatory document review and collection, investigational product (IP) compliance, and safety reviews. More frequent off-site (remote) monitoring may need to be considered.
