Accelerated Approval

Studies can be eligible for Acclerated Review in cases where there is an immediate need for a patient to enroll onto a study. In those cases, the turn-around time from submission to PRMC approval is ideally within five work days. The PRMC Chair will perform an accelerated review of a new protocol and give approval if the following conditions are met

  1. There is an eligible patient who needs treatment before the protocol is scheduled for PRMC review.
  2. The patient has no other treatment options.
  3. The patient may benefit from the treatment offered by the protocol.
