German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar FDA Submissions - Experiences Questions Who has been involved in preparing SDTM for submission to FDA? Who has been involved in preparing ADaM for submission to FDA? Who has been involved in preparing CDISC mock submissions? Who has experiences with submitting in other/hybrid data formats? Who has been involved in discussions with the FDA? Experiences with submission of data pools in CDISC formats to support integrated analyses? Who has contacted the FDA with general questions or Who provided feedback on current FDA documents? For standardized data submission questions, contact: For center specific contacts see:
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar Chance to Get Involved in Discussions with FDA Support the FDA/PhUSE Collaboration see FDA/PhUSE Working Groups Data Validation and Quality Assessment Standardizing Data within the Inspection Site Selection Process Challenges of Integrating and Converting Data across Studies Standards Implementation Issues with the CDISC Data Models Development of Standard Scripts for Analysis and Programming Non-Clinical Road-map and Impacts on Implementation
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar CDER Common Data Standards Issues Document Version 1.1 (Dec-2011) Updates regarding SDTM Implementation of Amendment 1 to SDTM 1.2 strongly preferred Subject Elements (SE) mandatory SDTM domain EPOCH in every subject-level domain ELEMENT/ETCD desired but not requested SUPPAE.AETRTEM Splitting domains (> 1GB) provide split domains in separate subdirectory SPLIT??? File size considerations use required maximum length of variable instead of 200 for every character variable
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar CDER Common Data Standards Issues Document FDA Expected SDTM Variables Baseline flags (--BLFL) in findings domains Study day (-DY) for every -DTC derived based on RFSTDTC RFSTDTC = start of treatment in most study designs Death diagnosis or comments in pathology reports SUBJID = Subject identifier used in Study Report define.xml + define.pdf (printable version, no need for hyperlinks)
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar CDER Common Data Standards Issues Document Version 1.1 Updates regarding ADaM Analysis Datasets should include appropriate numeric time variables (e.g. with value 8 for Week 8) basic demographic variables (e.g. sex) all covariates named in the protocol Analysis datasets should be derivable from SDTM To support traceability from results to collected data Not new but important! General Recommendation: Contact the FDA

German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar FDA Study Data Standards Resources
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar Implementing SDTM Amendment 1, FDA Docs. Information for new DM variables Store data in DM only vs. DM + another Domain? Date/Time of Informed Consent Date/Time of Death Date/Time of End of Participation Derive AE Treatment Emergent Flag in SDTM (SUPPAE)? When to use SUPPQUAL? Generally provide SDTM variables Expected by FDA? Process to ensure appropriate variable length Process for splitting domains and how to document it
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar Implementing SDTM Amendment 1, FDA Docs. How to create the define.pdf? Always create a Reviewers Guide? Per submission datasets folder (i.e., separate ones per set of SDTM or ADaM data)? Describing SDTM/ADaM and/or multiple studies together Contents? OpenCDISC SDTM (/ADaM) validation Timing of compliance checks within the process? Describing/addressing issues Define.xml schema validation/OpenCDISC define.xml validation How to describe which SDTM versions and appendices are used?
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar Implementing Controlled Terminology (Updates) Excerpt from Draft Guidance: Providing Regulatory Submissions in Electronic Format - Standardized Study Data (Feb-2012) When planning a study (including the design of case report forms, data management systems, and statistical analysis plans), the sponsor should identify which FDA-supported standard terminologies to use for submission. If a sponsor identifies a concept for which no standard term exists, we recommend that the sponsor submit the concept to the appropriate terminology maintenance organization as early as possible to have a new term added to the standard dictionary. We consider this good terminology management practice for any organization. The creation of custom terms for a submission is discouraged (i.e., so called extensible code lists)... Use of CDISC New Term Request Webpage? Experiences/Response Times? How to deal with CDISC CT Updates within a project? Documentation of CT version(s) used How to distinguish between CDISC CT values and sponsor extensions? Experiences with Updated Trial Summary (TS) domain?
German Speaking CDISC UG Meeting - 20-Mar Trial Summary (TS) Update Alignment with ClinicalTrials.gov New Trial Summary Parameters Indication of Use per Trial Summary Parameter Required Conditionally Required Expected Introduction of NULL FLAVOR Variable Coded Reason if TSVAL=missing Introduction of underlying CT information variables
