PRMC Requirements

Cancer-related studies must be reviewed by the Protocol Review and Monitoring Committee (PRMC). Cancer-Related Studies are studies where the objectives involve the diagnosis, prevention, screening, evaluation, treatment, or support of cancer patients and/or more than 30% of the patients involved in the study are likely to have an active cancer diagnosis.  Cancer-related studies can include studies that involve obesity, smoking cessation, etc. PRMC conducts its reviews via OnCore, so it is mandatory that all studies requiring PRMC review have an OnCore record regardless of billing risk.

Submit to PRMC first!

Note that if PRMC review is required, you must submit the protocol for PRMC review before submitting it for IRB review. If you submit to IRB without PRMC approval, IRB will not review your submission until PRMC approval is obtained.

PRMC Requirements

In addition to the Yellow and Green highlighted fields that are required as part of the WashU Minimum Footprint, submissions to PRMC require additional fields to be completed.  The protocol Regulatory Coordinator is required to enter fields highlighted in Purple on screenshots throughout this page at the time of Initial PRMC submission.

All modifications and continuing reviews for the study must also be submitted to PRMC concurrently with IRB submission.  The only exceptions are study team updates (not involving a PI change) and study flyers/advertisements, which do not require PRMC review.  PRMC instructions for modifications and renewals can be found here:  PRMC Submissions- Continuation, Change and Closure

Studies reviewed by PRMC require participant registration in OnCore in order to meet the requirements of the National Cancer Institute (NCI).  This includes studies classified as ancillary/correlative.  The New Studies Review Committee (NSR) will determine if your study requires individual level participant registration or summary level participant registration.  The only exceptions are retrospective chart reviews and specimen analyses conducted under a waiver, which do not require participant registration in OnCore. 

OnCore Guidance for:

If you are unsure as to whether your study qualifies for individual level or summary accrual, please contact PRMC via email at protocoloffice@wudosis.wustl.edu.

If you do not have access to register participants in OnCore, please contact the OnCore Support Team at oncore@wustl.edu to request access.

Institution

Additional PRMC Instructions

The PC Console > Institution page is used to display, add, and delete the institutions and study sites that are participating in the protocol. All participating institutions who will be reporting their enrollments in OnCore are required to be added. For cancer-related investigator-initiated studies, all participating institutions are required to be added because the NIH requires WashU to report the enrollments of all participating institutions.

  1. Please make sure that the WashU Minimum footprint fields (instructions found here: New Protocol Creation) are also completed at the time of PRMC submission.  

Creating the PRMC Submission 

Once the new protocol shell has been created and all Minimum Footprint and PRMC required fields are complete (see New Protocol Creation and PRMC Requirements instructions), the protocol may now be submitted for PRMC review.

  1. From the Menu, navigate to Protocols > PC Console and select the Management horizontal tab from the Main vertical tab.


  2. Change the PRMC Review Required drop down to Yes. Make sure that the protocol shell is complete before taking this action!
  3. When you click Submit, a pop-up will appear stating: Do you want to create an ePRMS initial submission?



  4. Click OK. This creates a submission for the protocol and sends it to the ePRMS Submissions Console.

 

Be sure to click OK!

Even if you change the drop down to Yes, if you do not click OK on the pop-up, the submission will not be created. If this occurs, change the drop down back to No or blank and click Submit; change the drop down back to Yes and click Submit again, then click OK on the pop-up.


When the "PRMC Review Required" is set to Yes, indicates that the protocol can't be opened to accrual until there is an approved PRMC Initial Review entered in OnCore. Additionally, a Create Initial Review link appears under this field (regardless of how it is set) in update mode when the following conditions are met:

  • The protocol has a library of Oncology.
  • The protocol doesn't already have a PRMC Initial Review.
  • The protocol's status is not Closed to Accrual, IRB Study Closure, Abandoned, or Terminated.
  • You have the Regulatory access role.

When you click this link, you are directed to a draft of the Initial Review in the ePRMS > Submission Console.  From here, skip to step 3 of Submitting to PRMC below.

Definitions

PC Console > Main > Details tab 

The PC Console > Main > Details tab is where basic information about a protocol is recorded. This page is the first page populated when creating a new protocol in OnCore.

  • Protocol No.: This is the main identifier for a protocol and will appear in reports and searches.
    • OnCore integrates with myIRB to link the study across the two systems, allowing select review and status information to flow from myIRB into OnCore. Therefore, you must enter the protocol number as assigned by HRPO in the Protocol No. field.
    • If you create the protocol shell in advance of IRB submission and you do not yet have a HRPO number assigned, please enter the PRMC number (for oncology studies) or the short title on your HRPO application.
  • NCT Number:  This is the clinicaltrials.gov number that is assigned at the time of clinicaltrials.gov registration.  Add the NCT number if available. If the study is a cancer-related (submitted to PRMC) interventional investigator-initiated clinical trial, please contact Allison Creekmore at creekmorea@wustl.edu and she will register the trial to clinicaltrials.gov.  She will also register any other types of investigator-initiated cancer-related clinical trials for investigators.  
  • Library: The library you select determines which set of configurations are made accessible for the protocol in OnCore.  Select Oncology if PRMC review is required. For guidance on which studies require PRMC review, please visit the PRMC website.
  • Department: In myIRB, Department is defaulted based on the PI; this may differ from Management Group. Department identifies the group responsible for managing study financials, determines privileges, and routes information for financial reports.
  • Organizational Unit: This will default to WUMC as there is only 1 Organizational Unit in OnCore.
  • Title: Identifies the full-length name of the protocol. The title populates to other pages within the OnCore application and is displayed in some reports. 
  • Short Title: An abbreviated version of the protocol title with 100 character maximum, the short title populates throughout OnCore and in some reports
    • Through the OnCore-Epic integration, the short title in OnCore populates as the study title in Epic.
  • Objectives:  The full list of objectives from the protocol.
  • Phase: For interventional clinical trials evaluating drugs/biologics/vaccines, select the accurate Phase. For interventional clinical trials evaluating radiation therapy, devices, or assays select N/A.  For expanded access studies, select N/A.  For observational, ancillary, correlative, not applicable, or single patient DT4 studies, select N/A.
  • Scope: Choose National if the study is taking place at other sites in addition to WashU.  Choose Local if the study is only taking place at WashU.
  • Age:  If the study is enrolling participants who are ≥ 18 years of age, choose Adults.  If the study is enrolling participants who are < 18 years of age, choose Children.  If the study is enrolling participants who are both Adults and Children, choose Both. 
  • Consent at Age of Majority:  When Adults is chosen for Age, this field is grayed out.  If Children or Both is chosen for Age, this field opens up.  If a child < 18 years of age is enrolled and then they turn 18 and become an adult (at the age of majority) while they are a participant, they are to be consented into the study using the main consent form and not just the assent form.  This field would be marked as “yes” if there is a formal consent for the study.
  • Investigator Initiated Protocol: This field indicates if the Principal Investigator for the study initiated the protocol.
    • Yes: The trial originated and/or is sponsored at WashU
    • No: The trial originated and/or is sponsored outside of WashU
  • Involves Therapy:   Used to indicate a therapeutic trial. If set to “Yes” a subject that is actively enrolled in the trial is prevented from being registered on another therapeutic trial. Do not use “N/A”.
  • Exclude Protocol on Web:  PRMC will complete this field for studies in the Oncology library.
  • Open For Affiliates Only:  This field must be marked as “No” or left blank in order for PRMC to review the submission.
  • Summary Accrual Info. Only:  For studies in the Oncology library, the New Studies Review Committee completes this field.  Contact the Siteman Cancer Center (SCC) Protocol Office at protocoloffice@wudosis.wustl.edu for questions regarding this field.
  • Protocol Type: Indicates the type of protocol, and is used in reports.
    • Basic Science: designed to examine the basic mechanisms of actions (e.g., physiology, biomechanics) on an intervention.
    • Device Feasibility: an intervention of a device product is being evaluated in a small clinical trial (generally fewer than 10 participants) to determine the feasibility of the product; or a clinical trial to test a prototype device for feasibility and not health outcomes. 
    • Diagnostic: evaluating one or more interventions aimed at identifying a disease or health condition
    • Health Services Research: designed to evaluate the delivery, processes, management, organization, or financing of health care
    • Other: not identified by any other categories, if the study is an expanded access study, the protocol type will be classified as “other”
    • Prevention: designed to assess one or more interventions aimed at preventing the development of a specific disease or health condition
    • Screening: designed to assess or examine methods of identifying a condition (or risk factor for a condition) in people not yet known to have the condition (or risk factor)
    • Single Patient:  Only select this if the study is being conducted on one patient.
    • Supportive Care: designed to evaluate one or more interventions where the primary intent is to maximize comfort, minimize side effects, or work against a decline in participant health or function (not curative). 
    • Treatment: designed to evaluate one or more interventions for treatment of a disease, syndrome or condition (therapeutic)
  • Data Table 4 Report Type(Oncology Library only) Indicates the type of study and is used in reports.  The New Studies Review Committee will review for accuracy:
    • Ancillary/Correlative:
      • Ancillary:  Hypothesis-driven studies that are stimulated by, but are not a required part of, a main clinical trial/study, and that utilize patient or other resources of the main trial/study to generate information relevant to it. Ancillary studies must be linked to an active clinical research study and should include only patients accrued to that clinical research study. Only studies that can be linked to individual patient or participant data should be reported.
      • Correlative:  Hypothesis-driven laboratory-based studies using specimens to assess cancer risk, clinical outcomes, response to therapies, etc. Only studies that can be linked to individual patient or participant data should be reported.
    • Interventional:  Hypothesis-driven studies where individuals are assigned prospectively by an investigator based on a protocol to receive specific intervention(s). The participants may receive diagnostic, treatment, behavioral, or other types of intervention(s). The assignment of the intervention(s) may or may not be random. The participants are followed so that effects of the intervention(s) on biomedical and/or health outcomes are evaluated.
    • Not Applicable:  Not identified by the other categories.
    • Observational:  Hypothesis-driven studies that focus on cancer patients and healthy populations and involve no prospective intervention or alteration in the status of the participants. Biomedical and/or health outcome(s) are assessed in pre-defined groups of participants. The participants in the study may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other interventions, but the investigator of the observational study is not responsible for assigning specific interventions to the participants of the study.
  • Registration Center

PC Console > Main > Management tab

 The PC Console > Main > Management tab is where administrative information about the protocol is tracked.   Some departments may have their own requirements beyond the Minimum Footprint requirements.

  • IRB No.: Like Protocol No. in the Details page, IRB No. is searchable in Select Protocol fields
    • For studies using HRPO, this number is the same as the protocol number.
    • For studies using an external IRB, this is the IRB number as assigned by the IRB of record.
  • PRMC Review Required 
    • Yes: The study is a cancer-related study
    • No: The study is not a cancer-related study 
  • NCI Trial ID: (Oncology library only) This field is for CTRP tracking purposes only and will be completed by the Siteman Cancer Center CTRP Coordinator.
  • Automated Sequence No.: If marked Yes, subject sequence numbers will be automatically generated based on rules you set up. Once a subject becomes eligible and is put On Study in the On Study tab of the Subject Console, the next available sequence number will be assigned to that subject and will auto-populate in the Sequence Number field.  If the study has different accrual goals based on arm or subject demographic factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, etc., different accrual goals can be set by selecting Stratified Block.  Complete instructions can be found on the Stratification Blocks page.
  • Internal Account No: This is required for the Workday-OnCore integration for Financials. After the study team creates the project in Workday, the Center for Clinical Studies (CCS) will review, approve and enter the Workday Project No. as the Internal Account No.  This needs to be entered prior to the first invoice creation in OnCore.
  • Allow Duplicate Enrollment: 
    • Yes: If the study allows previously screen failed subjects to re-screen and re-enroll, this field must be set to yes in order to allow a single subject to be enrolled on the protocol multiple times. 
    • No: When set to no, a single subject may only be enrolled on the protocol once. If you attempt to enroll a subject who has already been added to the protocol, the system will not allow this action.
  • Management Group: The team responsible for enrolling/managing study participants and/or collecting data for primary research endpoints. This field defines access privileges and shows up in reports. Select all that apply and select one Primary.
  • Program Areas: (Oncology Library Only) These selections will be used in the Data Table 4 Report and will be completed by the New Studies Review Committee.
