Protection of Human Subjects HHS Meeting, August 2013
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a public meeting to seek input and comments on how certain provisions of the HHS requirements related to the protection of human subjects should be applied to research studying one or more interventions which are used as standard of care treatment in the non-research context.   HHS specifically is requesting input regarding how an institutional review board (IRB) should assess the risks of research involving randomization to one or more treatments within the standard of care for particular interventions, and what reasonably foreseeable risks of the research should be disclosed to research subjects in the informed consent process.  The public meeting will be held on August 28, 2013 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
