8 Accrual Requirements Normally accrual projections for each component are based on the number of current SCCC members within a component Example: 2 x # MDs = projection

9 Revised Accrual Requirement Due to the lack of available protocols for common diseases (breast, colon, and lung), the component accrual requirement will not be enforced for the current grant year (6/1/13 to 5/31/14). We continue to encourage investigator participation in clinical trials for all cancer patients.

16 Pharmaceutical Management Branch (PMB) Oral Drug Accountability Record Form (DARF) New NCI Oral DARF available March 1, 2014 SCCC has pre-populated NCI Oral DARFs and Regular IV DARFs Available on SCCC member website – use following links to obtain: View Community Clinical Trials → Disease → Protocol → Related Documents → Drug Listing = DARF (ability to complete DARF online and save as document)

17 Pharmaceutical Management Branch Oral Drug Accountability Record Form (DARF)

18 NCI National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) There will be a total of 7 NCTN groups: 4 Adult Groups (legacy cooperative groups - some merged) Alliance (ACOSOG, CALGB, and NCCTG) EGOG - ACRIN (ECOG and ACRIN) NRG (NSABP, RTOG, and GOG) SWOG (remained solo) 1 Pediatric Group Children’s Oncology Group (COG) 2 Cancer Center Research Base Groups from the following: CCCWFU, MD Anderson, SunCoast, and URCC

19 National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) Became effective March 1, 2014 Transition process did not go as smoothly as NCI expected CTSU and all research bases experienced difficulties Many hours spent in SCCC Operations Office thru phone calls and emails to resolve issues – over 300 SCCC members to input info into system All components and their affiliates/clinics/etc. have performance site codes

20 NCTN Working Group Meeting held at NCI in Rockville, MD on Wednesday, March 26 Composed of 2 Co-Chairs and 28 extramural members – Jim Atkins, MD is a member Conducted 4 face-to-face meetings to date One more meeting may be conducted Have reviewed all clinical trials within the NCI portfolio

21 NCTN Working Group Responsibilities: Assess strength and balance of active NCTN clinical trials portfolio Recommend new strategic priorities and directions Review and assess the Clinical Trials Working Group evaluation process and results Provide strategic advice to enhance NCTN clinical trial operations

22 NCTN Working Group Meeting highlights: One of the Steering Committees now has new membership All clinical trials accruing over 1000 patients are on hold

23 NCTN Working Group (Meeting Highlights cont.) Total registrations for all 4 adult groups are 12,000 pts/year (3,000/group) – down from 25,000-30,000/year in the past (12,000 does not include accruals to Match or Alchemist) Steering Committees will rank Phase II and III trials (select protocols on hold) plus assess funding and # patients going on clinical trials

24 Performance Site Code s Also referred to as NCI CTEP institutional codes Utilized for patient registrations NCI wants the capability of identifying where patients are cared for/treated/consented Site code designated at registration is the location where the majority of patient assessment (MD visits) for the research study is done. Treatment and/or consenting may be done at another location.

25 CCOPSYS The database system utilized to store/access CCOP information. Provides: CCOP Description, Components (institutions), Persons (SCCC members - MDs, CRPs, RNs, etc.), Role Assignment within Operations Office, Research Base Rosters, History of SCCC, and required membership documents Quarterly Accrual Submission and Yearly Budget Historical Accrual Reports and Demographics of Accruals (male and female) Meeting presentations from CCOP PI/Administrators meetings

26 NCI Central Institutional Review Board (NCI-CIRB) Sole IRB of record responsible for study review as well as review of local context considerations via study- specific worksheets Local Institutional Key Responsibilities : Report unanticipated problems or serious/continuing noncompliance Merging local boilerplate text/language into CIRB-approved consent form

27 NCI Central Institutional Review Board (NCI-CIRB) SCCC Component NCI-CIRB Involvement/Progress Six components are presently utilizing Seven components have submitted applications – pending approval Five components are in the process of completing the application Approximate #s since approval process changes weekly/monthly

28 NCI-CIRB Three current CIRBs and one more added in future: Adult CIRB - Late Phase (16 members) – reviews all Phase III studies (since 2001) Adult CIRB - Early Phase (10 members) – reviews early phase studies (since 2013) Pediatric CIRB (16 members) – reviews all COG studies (since 2004) Cancer Control/Prevention CIRB – member solicitation has begun to form CIRB during 2014

30 ACCRU through Alliance Participation now available through SCCC for ACCRU studies since drug is distributed directly to components by Biologics for many studies One recurrent/metastatic breast cancer study available (RU011201I) with more to come - One component approved to participate - Several components are applying for participation

31 Alliance Executive Committee Retreat March 28-29, 2014 Miami, FL Group Chair: Monica M. Bertagnolli, MD All 4 NCTN group chairs composed a letter to Harold Varmus, MD (NCI Director) that addressed poor protocol selection, decreased number of trials, and IOM recommendations. ASCO article received via Alliance membership – Letter addressed budget cuts, end of CCOP funding, and lack of clinical trial research available

32 Summary NCTN Research Bases must be unified and work together Majority of clinical trials will be Phase II although the need for Phase III has been emphatically expressed Credit the majority of your registrations through CTSU to Alliance

33 Summary cont. Message conveyed: “clinical trial system is being dismantled in the US” Consider increased participation in industry trials NCTN Research Bases are planning to conduct large Phase III trials through foundation support if NCI does not support the trial

34 NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Timeline: NCORP Application received at NCI on January 8, 2014 Peer Review scheduled for Community Sites is April 24-25, 2014 with scoring posted within a few days – the lower the score the better (ideal 20-30) Application scores along with summary statement including comments from reviewers will come later NCI Advisory Review (2 nd level) scheduled for June 2014 ? determines funding NCORP anticipated start date around August 1, 2014

35 New Documents Drafted documents: ByLaws Consortium Agreement Governing Council Responsibilities Executive Board Responsibilities Component Responsible Investigator Responsibilities Study Coordinator Responsibilities

36 CCOP to NCORP Transition CCOP funding ends May 31, 2014 – able to pay all CCOP expenses up to that point (payment may occur in June for some expenses) SCCC will apply for “no-cost extension” of funds (leftover funds) remaining from CCOP award for 6/1/13-5/31/14 All expenses from 6/1/14 until NCORP funding is awarded will come from leftover CCOP funds All accruals from 6/1/14 will be extended CCOP credits

37 CCOP to NCORP Transition SCCC Operations Office will continue to function as normal Registrations will still occur to protocols and will be considered accruals to NCORP from June 1, 2014 forward Official merge of SCCC with Upstate will occur when NCI awards NCORP funding – have legal matters to address with the merge
