National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases

The purpose of this Notice is to announce the availability of the "Guidelines 
for Submission of Applications for Investigator-Initiated Clinical Trials."  
This document outlines the NIAMS policy and procedures for investigator-
initiated clinical trials and provides guidelines for the preparation and 
submission of these applications.  It lists the requirements placed on the 
receipt, review, and funding of these applications and presents guidelines for 
the conduct of such trials.  These guidelines apply to investigator-initiated 
clinical trials irrespective of the grant mechanism being used (e.g., R01, 
P01, P50, P60, etc.).  An application for a clinical trial should be submitted 
as a whole rather than applications from individual sites or components.  
Clinical trials submitted as projects in a P50 (Specialized Center of 
Research) or P60 (Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Center) should follow 
the application format described in these guidelines (Section C) and include a 
discussion of data safety and monitoring (Section D).
