? Call for Applications: AMANET Training Workshop for Data Safety & Monitoring Board

    (DSMB) Members from African Institutions

     8-10 October 2007 - Dar es salaam Tanzania

    Background and rationale :

    The conduct of clinical trials that fulfill good clinical practices (GCP) requires several organs to build into the process of each trial. These include clinical monitors, independent ethical

    committees, data safety and monitoring boards, safety monitoring boards, clinical development

    teams or steering committees as necessary. To be efficient each of these players in the clinical

    trial setting should be sufficiently experienced and trained.

    The number of clinical trials going on in Africa at the present is rapidly increasing, given the

    amount of funding resources being made available for R&D into diseases of poverty. The

    development of the human resource base has not been commensurate with the increase in

    number of trials, resulting in an increased demand for the limited expertise available on the

    continent. Whereas, notable efforts have gone into capacity development to improve

    infrastructure, and for training in GCP, GLP, and Health Research Ethics (HRE), there has

    been limited training for other key support organs such as for DSMB members.

    Typically, expertise to serve on DSMB is derived from individuals who are recognised for their

    skills in epidemiology, biostatistics, immunology, and other specialities as pertinent to a

    particular trial. Such competencies have usually been acquired through longstanding


    experience in the field, prior membership to committees, and sometimes experience in industry.

    This exposure cannot be adequately obtained through formal training during a university

    degree course. Therefore specific courses through workshops are required to equip the middle

    to senior level African scientists with skills to support the clinical trials, to increase the pool of

    available African scientists, and to provide an opportunity to develop the much needed

    experience. Although, the institutional activities considered for this workshop are malaria

    related, such a pool of expertise will likely serve other research areas in priority diseases such

    as HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis.

    Objectives and Expected Outcomes :

    General Objective : To contribute to capacity strengthening of the support systems for clinical

    research in Africa

    Specific Objectives :

    - To share experiences of DSMBs in African Institutions and from DSMB members

    - To update participants in the principles, guidelines and responsibilities of DSMB

     Highlight of topics to be covered :

    - Background and rationale for DSMB

    - DSMB and international guidelines/regulations

    - DSMB versus IDMC, DMC, DRB, ISM or ISC

    - Scope of responsibilities for DSMB and study teams

    - Composition and membership of DSMB and DSMB Meetings

    - The place of DSMBs in the trial set-up and DSMB meetings

    - Data Safety Monitoring Plan

    - DSMB SOPs; DSMB review- materials, methods and procedures

    - Statistical issues; Implications of Interim analysis

    - Dealing with confidentiality of trial data and conflict of interest

    - Format and content of DSMB reports; information flow

    - DSMB reports and IRBs

    - Group Work Examining the integrity of a study protocol

    - Group Work - Examining the safety of participants

    - Group Work Recommending conclusion of a Study Workshop format :

    Overviews and Discussions: Expert overviews will be presented and participants will have time for

    questions and discussions

    Group Work: This will provide exercises on expected activities of DSMB and how decisions are reached

    Plenary presentations and discussions: The plenary will convene for presentation and discussion

    of the outputs from group work

    Follow-up :

    There will be two types of post-workshop follow-up:

    Short term: To create an inventory of individuals with DSMB expertise/experience within Africa”

    Medium to Long term: to Facilitate the engagement of the scientists trained to serve in various DSMBs across Africa, particularly on AMANET sponsored clinical trials

    Date and venue :

    The workshop is intended to last three five full days and proposed for 8-10th October 2007, in Dar

    es Salaam, Tanzania.

    Who can apply ?

    Applications are invited from middle to senior level African scientists who are working in research

    institutes and Universities in Africa, and in other non- profit AMANET networked institutions.

    Individuals with research experience in epidemiology, clinical trials, biostatistics and those

    participating in or likely to be involved in malaria vaccine development are encouraged to apply.

    Candidates from selected centres being developed by AMANET are given preference.

    Applications must be received by Monday 10 September 2007 and submitted by e-mail to the

    following address :
