The Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) DSMB is available to aid WCM principal investigators and the Institutional Review Board (IRB) in providing an independent means of data and safety monitoring for clinical trials that involve significant risk to research subjects. The WCM DSMB reviews interim data on a schedule commensurate with the needs of a given protocol to evaluate research subject safety, rates of accrual, and efficacy of experimental intervention. After each evaluation, the Board provides the principal investigator with recommendations for protocol modification, continuation or termination.
Studies for which the WCM DSMB is appropriate as an independent method of monitoring include:
