Data Safety Monitoring Committees

Data Safety Monitoring Committees (DSMCs), one for each trial, with consultative functions, will be formed by independent experts external to the project, with the expertise and knowledge necessary to assist the PSC on safety grounds. Independent external experts will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. The DSMC’s will evaluate cumulative safety and other clinical trial data at regular intervals and will monitor the safety of patients enrolled and to be enrolled in the clinical trials at scheduled time points.
