Studies that do not meet their enrollment goals because of COVID-19-related issues should be described in a study’s Continuing Review application. The IRB will be mindful of the circumstances when conducting its review. If you are temporarily halting study enrollment and you have no active study subjects, this does NOT need to be reported to the IRB. If, however, you are halting the entire study and this will impact some active subjects, you should inform the IRB. Please see the other FAQs for whether a reportable event or change of protocol would be appropriate.
