Update to Clinical Trial Contracting Process

Principal Investigators and Study Teams:

The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) in conjunction with the Office of Sponsored Projects Administration (OSPA) is pleased to announce that we are now part of the CTSA initiative aiming to reduce clinical trial contracting delays.  The University of Kentucky is now registered as part of the CTSA consortium that is approved to utilize an Accelerated Clinical Trial Agreement (ACTA) for clinical trial contract negotiations.

What does this mean for investigators?

If the sponsoring agency is willing to accept a pre-approved template it will greatly speed up the clinical trial negotiation process.

How do you take advantage of the Accelerated Clinical Trial Agreement?

When you have a clinical trial contract that needs to be negotiated you will notify Dave Erem at OSPA  (257-5993) that you have a clinical trial that you would like to use the ACTA. Dave and his staff will then contact the sponsoring agency and ask them to consider using the ACTA.  If the sponsor agrees this will cut down on the amount of time that it takes to finalize the clinical trial agreement. However, it is up to the sponsoring agency whether or not they will accept the ACTA for negotiations.
We hope this change will improve the facilitation of your clinical trials.

UK HealthCare Emergency Medicine Study

UK HealthCare Emergency Medicine will be conducting an exception from informed consent emergency seizure research study, enrolling patients who are actively seizing despite initial treatment. A prolonged seizure can affect individuals of all ages.

Any person over the age of 2 may be eligible and will receive one of three commonly used medications to stop the seizure. Since seizure patients cannot give consent to be in a research study while they are seizing, we are asking community members to think about this research and let us know your thoughts in our Established Status Epilepticus Treatment Trial (ESETT) survey. There are no known risks involved in participating in this survey and your participation is completely voluntary. You may leave questions unanswered, if you feel uncomfortable answering any of the questions.

For more information or to opt out of the study, contact Theresa Mims at 859-218-5540.
