Input Due Oct. 26 on Changes to Rules Protecting Human Research Subjects

The deadline has been extended for comments on sweeping changes proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in late July to regulations that govern research on human subjects. Comments are now due to HHS by Oct. 26. IDSA plans to submit comments on the proposed changes and encourages IDSA members to do so as well. (See the July/Aug. 2011 IDSA News and an email sent to IDSA members in August for additional resources and how to submit comments to HHS.)

Often referred to as the Common Rule, the regulations have not been substantially revised since they were established in 1991 to guide federally funded research involving human subjects. HHS’ goal is to strengthen protections for subjects while also modernizing and simplifying the current system. Many of the proposed changes address issues IDSA has previously raised concerning the increasing regulatory burden on research (see IDSA’s related policy statement).

For more information, or to share your comments on the proposed changes with IDSA, contact Audrey Jackson, PhD, at IDSA.
